March 2 | 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. | Activity Center

Join us for this casual, family-friendly dinner that has become a tradition at First MB. Cost at the door is $12 for adults, $5 for children (4 - 12), and children under four are free.

Right now we're looking for volunteers! Please sign up here if you're interested in helping us prepare the food in advance or serve that evening. If you'd like to help with cleanup, taking tickets, or running tables, contact Stacy at


What is Verenika? 
Verenika (vur-EN-ih-kuh) are small dough pockets filled with a cottage cheese mixture, boiled, fried, and served with cream gravy. Verenika became a part of the ethnic Mennonite Brethren experience when Mennonites live in Ukraine. And... clearly... the experience is about taste, not calorie count.

What else is served at this dinner?
Hillsboro sausage, green beans, cherry moos (a cherry soup served cold), zwieback (dinner rolls), and pie. LOTS of pie.

Is any part of the meal gluten free?
The green beans and sausage might be, but none of the food will have been prepared in a gluten-free environment.

Who makes the food
First MB women make all the food (except for the sausage... the good people of Hillsboro, KS make the sausage) and the majority of the ingredients are donated.

What or who will be the beneficiary of the proceeds?
We'll let you know soon!
