Empty Bowls and Family Service

February 24

We are excited to invite you to our 5th Annual Empty Bowls Soup Supper which is combined with the fabulous MAPT Family Service Event for one great afternoon/evening of service learning and doing! It is an opportunity for us to pay it forward, reach out to help others in need, show our gratitude, and make kingdom impact.

The MAPT Family Service Event is from 3:30-5:30pm and will take place in the South Campus Upper Gym. It will feature the following service projects: House of Charity (collection happening Feb. 7 – 24 prior to the event), Earth Club, Books for India, Bird Feeders, Arrive Ministries, Marker Recycling (through Crayola’s recycling program; collection happening Feb. 10 – 24 with sorting/counting at the event), Thank You cards for Veterans at Rick’s Place, Make Spend/Share/Save Banks. Watch for additional information about service project collections and the Family Service Event.

The Empty Bowls Soup Supper will be from 3:45-5:45pm with the last soup serving at 5:45pm and will take place in the South Campus Cafeteria. Kindergarten-Grade 5 student created ceramic bowls will be for sale during the entire event (3:30-5:45pm). Before or after completing a service project at the MAPT Family Service Event, you are invited to come and break bread together and enjoy a free will offering Soup Supper in the cafeteria (soup choices will be provided by our wonderful school Faculty, Staff and MAPT Volunteers), bread choices are donated by Turtle Bread & Breadsmith.

You are welcome to stop down for soup any time between 3:45-5:45pm, but in order to make sure there is enough soup and supplies for all families who are interested in partaking of the soup supper, we need your RSVP.
