ROWLETT – The big game was a soup-er time for First Baptist Church to care for the hungry.
On Super Bowl Sunday, the congregation gave $561 — $100 for local children in need and $461 for the Texas Baptist Offering for World Hunger – through an effort it dubbed the “Souper Bowl of Caring.”
The congregation has participated in the Souper Bowl of Caring for years, said Minister of Education Gail Leatherwood. This year’s effort is part of the church’s involvement in Texas Hope 2010, a Texas Baptist initiative to pray for others, care for people in need and share the hope of Christ with every Texan by Easter 2010. The Texas Baptist Offering for World Hunger is one way Texas Baptists are caring for the hungry.
“It’s amazing how many hungry people there are,” she said.
