7th Annual SOUPer Bowl Lunch for Light House Shelter
Kick off your Super Bowl Sunday by doing something good for yourself and the community. Heritage Baptist Church is hosting the 7th Annual SOUPer Bowl Lunch for the Annapolis Light House Shelter on Sunday, February 3, from 12 – 2 PM.
Guest servers Maryland Speaker of the House Mike Busch and Annapolis City Council members Fred Paone, Shelia Finlayson and Classie Hoyle will ladle tasty soups prepared by award-winning local Chef Zachary Pope of Roundz Gourmet Market & Catering at the church’s fellowship hall (1740 Forest Drive, Annapolis). Menu soups are Chicken Noodle Soup, Baked Potato Soup and Chili. Guests will also enjoy salad, bread, drinks and cake.
The public is invited and admission is free, but donations are requested to benefit the Light House Shelter for the Homeless. All of the money collected will go directly to the shelter. This event has brought almost $12,000 for homeless prevention programs since it began in 2007.
“How often do you have lunch served to you by your elected representatives?” asked Rev. Henry Green. “That’s worth a donation right there!”
“Homelessness is a growing problem in Anne Arundel County. We want to take every opportunity to help the Light House, so come on out and join us for a great lunch. You’ll help a worthy cause and still make it home in plenty of time for the kickoff. Everybody wins!”
Heritage Baptist is a member of the Annapolis Area Ministries, a group of churches united to minister to the homeless and disadvantaged. For more information, contact the church office at 410-263-6680, or see the church web site at www.heritagebaptistonline.com
More About Heritage Baptist Church
Rich in history and tradition, Heritage Baptist Church has been a part of the community of Annapolis for more than a century. The church, which currently has a congregation of about 200 people, originated in 1903 when five members of the Eastport Baptist Church dreamed up its creation and raised enough money to see it through. The church's first location was on College Avenue and it remained there until the church moved to its current spot on Forest Drive in 1972. It was then that the Church became known to residents as Heritage Baptist. The church sanctuary includes four beautiful stained-glass windows, which were moved from the College Avenue facility. Reverend Henry Green serves as the church pastor.
