The Malvern UMC, located at 121 W. Wood St, Malvern, will be the setting for the Feb. 2 Swiss steak dinner serving from 4:30 p.m.-7 p.m.
The members of the church are promising the best Swiss steak dinner in the area, complete with mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, coleslaw, applesauce, rolls, pie, and beverage.
The cost is $9 for adults age twelve and above, and $5 for children ages five to eleven. Children under age five eat for free with adult. Take-out dinners will be available. Proceeds from the dinner will go toward two mission projects.
Half of the proceeds will go to Cross-Eyed Missions, operated by Dr. Braden Kail of Waynesburg. This mission provides eye care and glasses to areas of Central America where this kind of care is not otherwise available.
Eye glasses that are no longer needed may be donated at the dinner. Eye glasses can also be donated at Dr. Kail's office on highway 43 North in Waynesburg.
The other half of the proceeds will go to Heifer International. This program provides farm animals, such as ducks, chickens, goats, and cows, to impoverished people and communities, and then trains them on how to raise and use the animals for food and income.
The entire church family at Malvern UMC will be participating in the dinner - cooking, serving, and providing the best meal and desserts around.
If it were not for the members of the congregation, the church would not be able to have such a successful event.
