Your Best Super Bowl Party Yet!

superbowl
On Sunday, February 5, 2017, millions of people will gather in their homes to watch commercials and party. In between the commercials, there is a football game as well.

The UMW has a way to make Super Bowl LI your best party yet, even though the Redskins had to stay at home. We are selling Liliana’s empanadas for you and your football-loving guests to enjoy. These things have way more filling than Tom Brady’s football, and that includes organic beef, organic chicken, or organic vegetables! Stay tuned as we may add other flavors as well.

We will be selling these award-winning, worthy-of-the-Lombardi-trophy gems after each of the services over the next three weeks – in the coat rack area. The prices are $10 for a box of 6 large (5″ empanadas) and $5 for 6 small (3″ empanadas). The proceeds of this sale will go to the UMW’s short-term mission fund, which we use to send Pender women to spread the gospel of Jesus to other countries where football means something entirely different.

Thanks for supporting us!
