And we’re back…. School got started last week, the church choirs and bands are starting to practice, Wednesday school teachers are getting their instructions, and the kitchen crew is ready to cook your Wednesday suppers again. We have a couple of new part-time staffers in the kitchen this fall, Jerri Oines and Sheryl Bauman, and several new volunteer cooks.
Stop in and say hello and chop a vegetable or frost a cake with us. On the job training available…no experience necessary. Dinner prep begins on Tuesday mornings from 9:30 until about noon. We reconvene on Wednesdays at 1pm and start getting the meal ready for 4:45 start time. Dinner service stops at 6:15 in order to get to worship for gathering music at 6:20. After worship, we could use some help to clean up the dining room and get the dishes washed and put away. Stop in the kitchen to volunteer and we’ll put you to work.
The Milestone Celebrations continue this year under the leadership of Kellie Meisner. Each age group will have a recognition during worship on a Wednesday evening during the year, with the first up being the Kindergarten Blessing of the Backpacks. Watch for the notices on the bulletin boards and in the church newsletters.
If you haven’t registered your kids for Wednesday school, here’s the info on how to do it. Come to Wednesday school, eat dinner with your family and friends at church, and then join in the worship service. It’s a full evening of fun, education, fellowship and a chance to thank God for all these blessings.
Feeling overwhelmed by the back to school rush?
See you in church…

This will be our last Wednesday meal and last day of Wednesday school classes until September. Thank you for all the support of our volunteers in the kitchen and dining room. Thanks also to Karla Mitzel for the hard work she did this year to plan, shop, cook, supervise and guide us through the year.
Last week we enjoyed chicken sandwiches, macaroni salad and black bottom banana cream pie. Here’s a few pics from the dining room last week:
I had a request from a blog follower for the recipe for the reuben casserole. Here’s what we recommend after making it a couple of weeks ago.
REUBEN CASSEROLE: For 12 Servings:
Layer in a half-sized disposable pan sprayed with non-stick spray:
1 loaf of rye bread (or sourdough if you prefer), cut or torn in 1 inch cubes
3 pounds cooked deli corned beef, sliced and roughly chopped
2 cups thousand island dressing
2 cups sauerkraut
Warm in 325* oven, covered with foil until heated through. Remove foil and top with 2 cups shredded Swiss cheese. Return to oven and bake until cheese is melted.
Reuben (Corned Beef) and Rachel (Turkey) Casseroles
Grapes, Kiwis, Broccoli Salad and Salad Bar
Dinner is served from 4:45 pm to 6:15 pm, followed by a worship service.
All are welcome! Bring your friends.
Last Wednesday was International Women’s Day. Here’s how the world celebrated the day…The World Celebrates Women. At Calvary Lutheran, the women of the kitchen (and Larry) didn’t take the day off, but stayed on the job, celebrating their love of cooking and serving.
Doing dishes looks like a pretty fun job. We could use your help any Wednesday night.
Thumbs up for the Swedish meatball dinner last week. I’m sure he already ate his green vegetables.
This family proclaimed the meatball dinner a success as well, and were happy to pose for a family group photo.
We love seeing happy families getting to dine together with their church family on Wednesday nights.
