St. Luke Holding Soup Sale to Benefit Local Family
March 25, 2021
St. Luke Lutheran Church of Roaring Spring is holding a soup sale fundraiser for a family that is going through an ordeal with cancer.
Kristen Thomas is a young mother of two who has been diagnosed for a second time with a cancerous brain tumor. In December, her family received the news that Kristen could no longer continue with treatment. Her family is left with insurmountable medical bills from her surgeries, hospital stays, rehabilitation, and treatments.
To help, St. Luke is selling vegetable soup for $6 a quart and family-size salads for $3. The event will be held from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 1. The event will be held at St. Luke Lutheran Church, 401 E. Main St., Roaring Spring. All of the proceeds will go toward the family.
“Normally on Maundy Thursday, our congregation will hold a dinner worship service to remember Jesus’ last supper with his disciples and the commandments that he left us with,” Pastor Amanda McCaffery said. “With COVID-19 still being present this Holy Week, we decided to forego the sit-down dinner we normally have and live out the servanthood that Jesus exemplified for us.”
