KINGSPORT, Tenn. (WJHL) – Sunnyside Baptist Church in Kingsport hosted a “Souper Bowl,” for Super Bowl Sunday. The children’s ministry collected canned soup for those affected by the pandemic.
After collecting soup and crackers over the past few weeks, on Sunday the congregation hosted a soup luncheon and helped package the food for distribution.
The church packaged a total of 90 bags.
“We’re having soup and crackers for like people that can’t be at church at this time,” Jayden Foster, Children’s Ministry member said. “We are bringing them to their doorstep and telling that that we love them and hope they can come back soon.”
The goal of the food drive is to teach children the importance of generosity, Sunnyside Children’s Director Tammy Rogers said.
“You know, they’re the future, and so the more that we can plant those seeds in their little hearts, and get them excited, we’re furthering His kingdom, and that’s what it’s all about,” Rogers said.
Church leaders plan to donate all food not distributed to the Indian Springs Mission Center.
