Souper Bowl of Caring 2022 Challenge

The Outreach Team is excited to invite you to participate in the 2022 Souper Bowl Challenge! Our GOAL is 1,000 cans of soup and $1,000 donated to tackle hunger in our community by donating soup and cash to the Neighbors in Need Food Pantries serving Methuen & Greater Lawrence.



January 16th - February 13th



Two teams, comprised of our church family and friends, compete to see who donates the most cans of soup and money. Scores are computed each week/quarter and announced in the service each Sunday.

The First Church Souper Bowl Trophy is awarded on Super Bowl Sunday, February 13th, 2022.


Pre-Covid-19, if you were attending services in the sanctuary and sat in the pews that face the organ and choir loft, you are a member of Team Right.


If you sat in the pews that faced Pastor Bill while he preaches from the pulpit, you are a member of Team Left.



Cans of soup, placed in a bag or box, can be dropped off at the parking lot at the rear  of First Church Congregation, 26 Pleasant Street, Methuen, from 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM on the following Saturdays:

• January 22nd (1st Quarter)

• January 29th (2nd Quarter

• February 5th (3rd Quarter)

• February 12th (4th Quarter)


If you are unable to get to the church to deliver your soup, contact the church office (978-687-1240). A member of the Outreach Souper Bowl team will be in touch to schedule a pick-up. For your convenience, monetary donations can be dropped off or mailed to the First Church Office. DONATIONS must be received by February 7th, 2022.
