Souper Bowl with Us
Souper Bowl Sunday is still SUPER !!!
Super bowl Sunday (Feb 7) sponsored by Bridgewater United Methodist Women will kick off our Souper Bowl noisy collection. You get to drop change in a bucket and make noise 😁.
We will be taking the collection at the Green Street side of the church from 2 - 3 pm on Sunday Feb 7, and outside the church office from 9 - 3 Monday - Friday the next week. If you'd rather be a little quieter, you can drop off bills or checks made out to BUMW with Souper Bowl or BIFP (Bridgewater Interfaith Food Pantry) in the subject line into the bucket on Sunday or during the week or mail them to the church any time.
The collection will support the Bridgewater Interfaith Food Pantry, to help our neighbors who are hungry.
And for the first time ever!!! - Upon request, we will come to your home in Bridgewater so you can make your loud or soft donation without leaving home. Call Karen Chamblee at 540-234-8737 to arrange a Souper Bowl visit.
The monies collected will be used to support the Bridgewater Interfaith Food Pantry. The pantry is open from 6 - 7 pm the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of every month for curbside pickup. Anyone who lives within 5 miles of Bridgewater or attends a church that is part of the pantry is welcome to come and get food for their family.
Thank you for your support.
