Souper Bowl Sunday

Following worship, we will gather for our Annual Souper Bowl Sunday luncheon. Souper Bowl Sunday was created to help raise awareness for hunger related issues in the United States. This year, the GPC Youth have asked for your support of the local food pantries. Last Sunday, canvas bags were provided to the congregation and people were asked to bring them back with items for the pantries. In addition, both the Ardmore Food Pantry and the Narberth Food Bank have asked for $10 gift cards to ACME or Giant so that clients can purchase meat and other items of need. 

On Sunday, please support these pantries by either bringing in bags of food or the gift cards.

Items of need:
