Souper Bowl of Caring

Sunday, February 4 after all three services.

Bring your donations and clean out your change buckets for Souper Bowl of Caring. This annual fundraiser supports hunger organizations across Long Beach, the country, and the world. Donations will be collected following all three services on Super Bowl Sunday with different pots to represent the two teams in the big game. Last year the donation pots reflected the game with a narrow margin between the Patriots and the Falcons. Thank you for your support of our Los Altos Youth and their dedication to ending hunger.

This year the concert will be in the Sanctuary due to our construction project. TICKETS ARE $10 AND MAY BE PURCHASED DURING THE COFFEE HOURS ON SUNDAY MORNINGS, IN THE CHURCH OFFICE OR AT THE DOOR. DON'T MISS IT!
