Souper Bowl Sundae


Join us Sunday, February 4 (Super Bowl Sunday) from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church of Sheraden (3102 Sherwood Ave., Pittsburgh 15204).


We all know the Super Bowl is a time to gather friends and family for food, drinks and cheers for your favorite football team.  But the Souper Bowl Sundae is a time to gather our community for a simple meal of soup, bread and ice cream sundaes to help support our neighbors in need.  


This is a FREE event! Come and enjoy the fellowship and fun – and the warmth of a humble meal among friends.


We will be collecting non-perishable food items (and cash donations), which will be given to the St. Andrew Food Pantry.


Don't worry... you won't miss the game!  The Super Bowl kick-off isn't until 6:30 p.m. EST.
