Over 400 faithful Wednesday meal diners donned their winter apparel and braved the below zero temperatures to join us for chili, tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches.
The kitchen crew made 10 roasters of homemade chili, 8 gallons of tomato soup, 480 grilled cheese sandwiches, and 48 angel food cake rolls.
It’s wonderful to see these youthful smiling faces. THIS is why we do this, week after week–to teach our young people the importance of service to others and the priceless value of sharing a meal with family and friends in God’s house.
Blessings upon blessings at Calvary Lutheran Church… After dinner, St. Nick’s elves get prepped on proper shoe collecting, then the children gather to hear the message of giving and God’s love for all. At the end of the service, Pastor Herb joins the kids for “I Get Down, and He lifts me up!” before the kids rush out to find their shoes filled with candy bags.
