This was discussed several months ago on the thread Beta calendar event submission. At that time, there was no ability to do this, but it appears that it can now be done. Just create a calendar called "Missionary Dinners" and then members can submit event requests using that calendar. They will choose the "Create Event" button, then select that calendar and fill in the rest of the event details.
Update: But it looks like I spoke too soon. If you are not a calendar editor, you can go through all the above steps, but then when you try to check for conflicts so that you can save the event, you are told that you are not an editor for that calendar, and so your only option is to cancel. That doesn't seem too friendly, but I imagine it will be smoothed out as development proceeds. What I don't know is if the Create Event button will be disabled, or if members will be able to submit requests.
