Empty Bowls, Filled Souls Event –
Supported by CJAMM Friends and Supporters
On November 2, over 200 CJAMM friends, supporters, clients, and volunteers attended an event called Empty Bowls, Filled Souls. According to Executive Director Keith Dobbs, the event was the first in-person event for CJAMM since COVID.
“We are thrilled with how many people showed up to support this amazing ministry,” said Dobbs. “The rewarding part was to see and hear all the success stories of clients going through the Exodus Houses and attending New Day Camps.”
The event, hosted at St. Luke’s Methodist Church in OKC, featured a mix-match collection of bowls which was symbolic of the clients CJAMM serves. “They come in all shapes and sizes, colors, and designs,” continued Dobbs. “Our mission is to help fill up proverbial bowls for our clients while they are in our program.”
Each guest was able to select the bowl of their choice and take it to be filled with warm and comforting soup for their dinner. Their bowl became a take-home souvenir from the event.
CJAMM expresses special appreciation to Pastor Jim Perkin and Michael Wylder for the musical ensemble from Nichols Hills United Methodist Church for dinner music; the team from St. Luke’s for hosting the event; Boston Avenue United Methodist Church in Tulsa for transporting guests to the event; and all those who sponsored tables, donated bowls and auction items, and purchased auction items.
