Last week we served Philly Cheesesteak Sliders using Hawaiian rolls and a fully cooked steak, pepper and onion product. Here’s the way we made those. It’s an easy recipe to make to serve a big crowd.
We used this product, but you could also use thinly sliced roast beef and sautéed peppers and onions.
We have 2 weeks of Wednesday meals before we take a break for Christmas. Wednesday programs will resume on January 8th.

Last week we served almost 400 a meal of roast beef, veggies in cheese sauce and Cranberry white chocolate bars. We had a confirmation group serving dinner and we always love to see those helping hands in the dining room.
Join us for dinner on Wednesday evening for Roast Beef with gravy, Veggie Bake, Dinner Rolls, and Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Bars
Dinner is served from 4:45 to 6:15 pm in the fellowship hall. We ask for a small donation to cover the cost of food and supplies. The suggested donation is $5 for adults and $3 for children, but we invite you to pay what you can. Our Wednesday meal ministry is a way to gather members and visitors together to share a meal and more easily attend our education classes without having to worry about finding dinner on a busy school night. The worship service that follows dinner at 6:30 pm is led by our praise band with lively and inspirational music. Several times a year the children from Wednesday school share songs with the congregation during worship, and most weeks we celebrate a Milestone group with special recognition in the service. Next week’s Milestone ministry is presentation of Bibles to the 3rd grade class. For the full Milestone schedule, visit the church’s website: https://www.calvaryrapidcity.org/getting-involved/ministries/family/
After a week off for Trunk or Treating, we’re back on track for the next 3 weeks until Thanksgiving Break. Please join us for supper tomorrow night for some good warm comfort food.
The Calvary Lutheran Church kitchen will be serving Chicken Pot Pie, a Winter Fruit Salad, Salad Bar and a Pumpkin Dessert. We invite everyone to join us between 4:45 and 6:15 pm and stay for worship after dinner.
