Yes you can subscribe to calendars in Outlook 2007 and it has a similiar feel to the google calendars with overlaying or side by side comparision.
I also wish to second the ability to subscribe to the ward calendar. This could be done similiar to how google does it with a private key generated for each user that allows them access the sites services without having the programs to authenticate with username and password, they just use the private-key.

I think the general membership should be closely tied with the calendar. We just need more members and leaders submitting calendar items to it. (eg. The next canning, Boy scout pack meeting, ward temple night, ward social, etc.) And with the syncing software the members will be able to see when events are and plan ahead.
