Jennings County throws soup fundraiser

First Christian Church’s youth group is having a soup fundraiser from 5-7 p.m. today at the church, 108 E. Walnut St. in North Vernon, to raise money for its summer time activities.

Everyone is welcome to the “Soup, Stew, Jesus & You” event. Tickets will be sold at the door for $1 each. The tickets will be used to buy food and beverages at booths operated by different youth groups.

The menu is expected to include chili, French onion soup, pepper soup, chicken and noodle soup, venison stew, potato soup, vegetable soup, pasta, sides, desserts and more.

Proceeds will be used for the youth groups’ trip to Knoxville, Tennessee, to attend a youth conference in June.
