LYNCs groups are proud to announce that we are participating in the
2016 Souper Bowl of Caring! Souper Bowl of Caring uses the energy
around our nation’s largest sporting event to mobilize and inspire
youth to fight hunger and poverty. Students across the country will
develop stronger connection to their communities as they collect food
and raise money for charities that provide shelter to the homeless,
food to the hungry, and compassion to those in need. After each
service on February 5, our LYNCs will take up a collection and give
100% of donations to the Mooresville Soup Kitchen. We will report our
total to Souper Bowl of Caring so our youth groups become part of the
national efforts. Through this experience, they learn the power of
working together to make a difference in the lives of others. Help us
make a difference this year by simply dropping a dollar into a soup
pot on Sunday, February 5. Thank you in advance for helping to make
our inaugural participation in Souper Bowl of Caring a success! souperbowl.org

Our Towns Habitat has brought the Mooresville Faith Coalition back
together to help with two more houses on Burke Circle! If you
recall, last year 6 local churches, including St. Mark’s helped
sponsor and build a home. This year, the homes already have
financing and they need assistance with the build. Our Towns
Habitat has been very appreciative of our help with Habitat in the
past and invites our assistance again.
