Pasta Night 9-25-19

Calvary Lutheran Church, Rapid City, offers food and fellowship every Wednesday from 4:45 to 6:15, either before or after your Wednesday school class. If you’re too young or too old for Wednesday school, just come to supper and stay for worship at 6:30.

The menu this week is Rotini Pasta with Meatsauce, Salad Bar, Garlic Bread and Black Forest Cake.

Last week we served sloppy joes, french fries, salad and rice krispie treats. We had lots of good helpers from confirmation groups. If you have a group that would like to help serve or scrape dirty dishes, check with Karla or Cassie by calling the church office or catch them in the dining room or kitchen on a Wednesday night.

Menu for 9-18-19

Dinner service is from 4:45 to 6:15 pm, followed by a contemporary worship service lead by the praise band in the sanctuary. All members and visitors are welcome to join us for dinner. Please donate what you can to help cover the cost of the meal. We suggest $5 for adults and $3 for children.

Last week we kicked off the fall session of Wednesday school on September 11th, honoring the day of remembrance with a red, white and blue themed dinner. Here are a few photos of the meal:

MILESTONE MINISTRY… Calvary’s Milestone Ministry is a way of helping families pass on the Christian faith. It is a way to celebrate events in our everyday lives that shape our identity and give us a sense of belonging to the family of Jesus Christ.

In September we will focus on the following groups: 

Kindergarten: September 11 – Blessing of the Backpacks: The focus of this Milestone will be on Blessing our Children in their newest journey of Kindergarten. (Please have the children bring their backpacks to the 6:30 pm worship service.) We invite Kindergarten parents to come to their child’s Wednesday School classroom for a time with the pastor to talk about this milestone. 

9th Grade: September 18 – Starting High School: The focus of this milestone will be how Faith is Greater than Fear in this new transition in school. 

7th Grade: September 25 – Beginning Confirmation: The focus of this milestone is to celebrate the confirmation students as they start their journey, boldly and confidently making promises affirming their baptism and living out their faith at church. 

There will also be reserved seating in the Sanctuary for the 6:30 pm worship service (presentation will happen during this time.) Call Kellie Meissner, Family Ministries Coordinator, for more information, 430-9684.
