ABOUT US

The Soup Opera began February 4, 1983 through the efforts of a small group of people committed to living The Gospel of Jesus Christ. It was a call to action in response to God's word in Matthew 25:35-36 NIV telling us , "For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you come to visit me."


It was not known where or how or who would do the work. Yet, the Lord provided for all the needs. The place was given, the resources became available, and the people came- both to serve and to be served. All were welcome with no requirements or questions ask. Anyone who was hungry  for food or fellowship came to be fed. The Soup Opera is an act of Love through God, by God and for God.
