The SOUPer Bowl is a youth event every year. They make soups to sell the Sunday of the Super Bowl, so that our church members have their meal ready for the big game. The money and food donations are gathered to feed the homeless near and far. World-wide donations in 2017 totaled $10.4 million in cash and food.

This volunteer-based company was founded in 1990 by a practicing nurse, who was concerned about the babies who were entering the world without adequate food, clothing, beds, or safety. Volunteers collect donations to help aid these children. You may bring your donations to the church, and someone from the organization will come to pick them up and help distribute them.

The backpack brigade has helped churches to connect with Bremerton families who need food assistance over the weekend. Bring your donations for this program to Bremerton United Methodist Church, and they will be picked up and taken to volunteers who fill the backpacks.

Every year, the church leads a volunteer based event called "The church leaves the building." During this event, church members leave worship early to head into the community and help others who have difficulty completing household tasks, such as yard work, gardening, moving boxes, cleaning, etc. We are always looking for more volunteers to help with this event! If you would like to be involved, please contact Susan Malcolm at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Warm for Winter
During Homeless Awareness Week, our church teams up with other churches in the area, as well as other businesses, to collect donations of hats, scarves, gloves/mittens, blankets, and other items that will help keep people warm. Homeless persons are then invited to our church, where we share these donations, as well as a hot meal.
