As a means to help local residents who may be in need of a hot meal this weekend, the First Baptist Church-Opp’s men’s ministry is holding a “Soup for All Seasons” event.

Organizer Ronnie Sansom said the event is for “anyone who needs the hot meal.”

“We were looking for an opportunity to meet some needs in the community,” he said. “We hope to meet the need by providing a hot meal.”

Sansom said that while the men’s ministry is heading up the first-ever soup event, the church hopes that other ministries can come from it.

“We hope to put faces with the community,” he said. “And actually help out and minister.”

Sansom said the event will be held Sat., Dec. 31, from 10:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. at the church.

“Anyone can come by and have a hot bowl of soup,” he said. “People are making a variety of soups.”

Sansom said anyone interested in donating drinks, preparing a pot of soup or making a monetary donation, can call the church at 493-3235.
