A Warm-Up to Souper Bowl of CaringConsistent with participating in the Souper Bowl of Caring, Westwood First Presbyterian Church, in Cincinnati, Ohio, is striving to be a "Matthew 25 Church." Matthew 25 churches "are called to act boldly and compassionately to serve people who are hungry, oppressed, imprisoned and poor. By joining on this journey, we are uniting in common mission with Presbyterians to become a more relevant presence in the world."
For fall 2020, we partnered with Our Daily Bread Soup Kitchen and Social Center. Each Thursday, church members made sandwiches and zipped them into sandwich bags to deliver to the church. Volunteers from Westwood First's Mission Committee then delivered them to Our Daily Bread, just in time for lunch. On December 10, we passed the 10,000 sandwich mark!
