My church eats a dinner meal after the service every Sunday. Fried Chicken, Spaghetti, and Sloppy Joes are often on the menu. It needs to be kid friendly not too spicy as older ones don't care for spicy meals and easy to prepare. Alot of us are tired of the same old thing!! Do you have any ideas? TIA!!

I think I'd find a different church!
Fellowship is nice but you could do that over a cup of coffee and go out to a restaurant for your meal or go home to a dinner you've put in the over before the services. That's what we do and aren't missing out on anything. You must belong to a very small church to do that every Sunday. We always have a church wide dinner the Sunday before Thanksgiving but that's it for the year.
For quite a few years, we were part of a church that had a meal every Sunday. I used my crockpot a lot. Macaroni and cheese, chicken alfredo sauce over pasta, chili, white chicken chili, chicken and rice casserole, pot roast, refried beans, 5-bean casserole, cheesy bean dip (with tortilla chips), kielbasa slices with K.C. Masterpiece BBQ sauce, baked potatoes and toppings, mashed potatoes, scalloped potatoes and ham, etc
Some non-crockpot foods: pepperoni rolls (could always have small crockpot with marinara sauce to dip), pita pockets with tuna salad, egg salad, etc, crackers with sausage and cheese slices, etc.

1 pkg taco seasoning
1 can of whole kernel corn...do not drain

Brown and drain the meat, Add the taco mix and corn. Simmer for 10 min. then add the tomato sauce.

Crockpot Potatoes~ these are so good!
2 lbs red potatoes (peeled or unpeeled)
8 oz cream cheese
Chicken Sandwich filling
1 bag of frozen chicken breasts-thawed
1 bottle of Ranch Dressing--will not use all
1 C. Mayo
1 C. shreded colby-jack cheese
1 can Cream of Chix soup
1 can sliced water chestnuts
1 8 oz carton of sliced FRESH mushrooms
1/4 C. butter
Onions/Celery chopped....add to your liking but at least 1/2 c each (I like a bit more!)
Cook the chicken in crockpot on High for 4-6 hours with Ranch Dressing poured over (use amount sufficient to coat but not float!
When chicken is done, shred it with two forks.
Saute the mushrooms with onion and celery in butter.
Mix all together in the crockpot and continue on Low 2-4 hours.
Serve with buns, crackers, or tostido chips. This is also great cold. Reheating is fine, and leftovers are just as good!
Spaghetti or really any pasta cooked -you want enought o heavily cover the bottom of a 9x13 pan.
1/2 C. milk mixed with 1 egg
Jar of Spaghetti sauce--your favorite kind
1 1/4 # gr beef or gr turkey--broned with about 1/2 C. diced onion
Pepperoni slices (I buy the Hormel turkey pepperoni slices)
1 # shredded mozzarello cheese...use a better brand kind as the cheaper brands will crust and not be soft and gooey.
Generously cover the bottom of the pan with the pasta, pour on the milk/egg mixture. Cover with the jar of spaghetti sauce, then the hamburger mix. Top with the cheese.
Bake about 30-35 min. at 350 degrees till thoroughly baked through and cheese is bubbly.
How wonderful to find a church that has fellowship. It's grand to know that people will let the world out and the fellowship in the Lords house and spend the time as a church family enjoying a meal together.
Do you have people bring food? Or is all prepared in the church kitchen? I have worked in enviroments of fellowships to help serve children and people. Plus enjoyed church meals of fellowship.
