Planning for the 2013-14 education, worship and meals is well underway.  Enjoy the last few weeks of summer, and we’ll be back for dinner on September 18th!

Volunteer Help Needed in the Calvary Kitchen for prepping and cooking for the Wednesday Evening Meals.  Some prep work is done on Tuesday mornings for about 3 hours, starting at 9:30 am.  The rest of the meal is prepared on Wednesdays starting at 1 pm until serving is finished at 6:15.  Any amount of time you could work on either, or both, of these days would be helpful.  If you like to cook or would be willing to learn, please join us in this very important ministry. It’s a great way to get connected at Calvary.  Email Karen Schleusener at kschleusener@gmail.com or call her at either 484-4858 or 348-9085.

Wednesday Evening Meals begin on September 18th and will follow the education calendar for 25 weeks, with some holiday breaks, through April 16th.  If there are no education classes, there will not be a meal.

 

After some thoughtful debriefing and planning based on feedback from last year, we will be implementing a few changes to the dining service this year:

1.  The suggested donation amount will be $5 for adults and $3 for children under 12, instead of $4 for everyone.  

2.  No take out meals will be provided during the serving of dinner between 4:45 and 6:15pm.  If you would like to give an extra donation and take home some extra food after everyone has been served, please check with the kitchen staff after 6:30pm.  We will be doing this in an effort to make sure we do not run out of food for those who come to church for dinner.

 3.  We will be providing a salad bar every week, based on requests to provide a vegan/vegetarian option at each meal.

4.  We need everyone’s help with clean up in the dining room, as we never seem to have enough volunteer help to keep up.  Please return your dishes to the dirty dish station as soon as you have finished eating.  If you are able, please help us out by scraping and stacking your dishes and throwing away your garbage.  Feel free to stay in the dining room after you have returned your dishes and enjoy your fellowship time.  

Please join us on Wednesday evenings this year to share a meal, make new friends and enjoy some time with old friends.  Consider volunteering in the kitchen or dining room, where serving others can make your heart happy and put a smile on your face.
