The Souper Bowl of Caring results are IN – and the competition was split!

On Sunday, Feb 5, a total of 1,025 items were collected for the Palatine Food Pantry – 447 of those items were from the 8:30 service and 578 were from 10:30. $774 was also collected for ELCA World Hunger – $584.00 was donated by the 8:30 service and $190.00 from 10:30. Even though the 10:30 service won the food donation challenge, 8:30 rallied and won the monetary donation challenge!


On behalf of our Confirmation class, I want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who participated! Your contributions are so appreciated by the Palatine Food Pantry and ELCA World Hunger. You proved on Sunday that we can be the change that we wish to see in the world.
