Covenant Presbyterian Church celebrated the annual “Souper Bowl of Caring” with a soup collection, led by the youth, and a pot luck lunch after worship on Sunday, February 3. In a spirited “co-opetition” among church members and friends, the youth collected over 3900 cans of tomato and chicken noodle soup for the pantry at the Presbyterian Community Center in Southeast Roanoke. After worship, everyone celebrated God’s abundance while enjoying hot, homemade soups made from three recipes in the church cookbook, bread and desserts. The youth then delivered the soup to the Center and replenished what had been bare shelves in the pantry. Covenant’s youth minister, Mary MacMichael, is so thankful for the very generous response and is looking forward to setting an even higher collection goal next year!
Covenant Presbyterian is located at 1831 Deyerle Road in Roanoke County and welcomes you to join us for worship at 10:30 AM Sunday mornings.
