Souper Bowl of Caring 2022 - Sunday, February 13th

The Souper Bowl of Caring inspires youth to work together in the fight against hunger in their communities. Each year, Incarnation’s youth participate on Super Bowl Sunday to raise monetary donations for TACO’s and Interfaith Community Services’ food pantries. This year we hope to top the $2,080 raised last year. Youth will be collecting your donations following the 9:30am worship service on February 13th. Your donations will become a vote for the team you hope will win the Super Bowl game. Students will have collection pots representing the two teams. If you don’t have a favorite in the game, you can put your votes toward the commercials. Everyone is a winner when we do our best to feed those in need. Monetary donations can also be made by mailing a check to church or donating on the church website https://www.godamong.us/giving Please specify that the donation is for the SOUPERBOWL.



Your 2022 OFFERING ENVELOPES are available on a table in the narthex in alphabetical order. Please pick them up during the Saturday or Sunday Worship. Thank you!



We want to hear from you!

Whether you attend in person, online, or a little of both, we hope you will complete our brief survey. A response from each member of your household is welcome. Give some thought to what events, activities, or meetings you might like to have on campus or online and share your ideas in the survey. Thanks in advance.

You may send your gift to support wildfire, flooding and earthquake survivors. When sending a check to ILC please indicate which response you wish to support, and your check will be used in its entirety for that cause, through Lutheran Disaster Response.
