Serve Banquet West Location

The Banquet meal ministry was founded in 1985 starting with just one meal per week. They now serve 13 meals per week at two locations. The Banquet is a volunteer-based ministry, which means the meals are paid for, prepared by, and served by volunteer groups who come from Sioux Falls and the surrounding area.

In 2017 The Banquet served 196,000 meals, and at least 25,000 of those meals were served to children under 12. We go through approximately 15,000 gallons of milk each year.

Serve Banquet West Location

The Banquet meal ministry was founded in 1985 starting with just one meal per week. They now serve 13 meals per week at two locations. The Banquet is a volunteer-based ministry, which means the meals are paid for, prepared by, and served by volunteer groups who come from Sioux Falls and the surrounding area.

In 2017 The Banquet served 196,000 meals, and at least 25,000 of those meals were served to children under 12. We go through approximately 15,000 gallons of milk each year.

Shrove Tuesday Flapjack Follies

The Chancel Choir of First United Methodist Church, 401 S. Spring, is hosting their annual Shrove Tuesday Flapjack Follies.  The choir members will be serving pancakes ‘with all the fixins’ from 4:30 – 6:30 on Shrove Tuesday, March 5th. 

For 29 years this Shrove Tuesday tradition of serving pancakes by the church chancel choir has benefited  selected non-profits. The Lowell Elementary band program and the Kidstop after-school program at First Church will receive the pancake proceeds this year. There will be entertainment in true Dixieland and Mardi Gras style during the serving times.

The ticket prices to eat these yummy pancakes are adults - $5, ages 3 to 12 - $3, and younger than 3 are free.  Tickets may be purchased by contacting the First Church office at 336-3652 or ‘at the door’.
