Lutefisk Dinner

norwayflagThe St. John’s Lutefisk Dinner tradition began around 1930 and continued annually until 1942, resuming again in 1962 and continuing ever since. This congregational event involves hundreds of members and we are proud of this tradition. Proceeds go to synod mission support.

The Lutefisk Dinner is a family tradition, bridging across all ages and groups in our congregation and bringing families from throughout not only our community, but even as far away as Maine! Plan to join us for this tradition. Click here for information on past dinners.

Lefse baking begins - Get ready to roll!

Lefse Bake setup begins Tuesday, August 21, 2:00-3:00 pm, and continues every Tuesday through October 16.

Potato Preparation begins Tuesday, August 21, 6:00-8:00 pm, and continues every Tuesday through October 16 in the church kitchen. Potatoes will be provided. Bring your own peeler if you have a favorite one.

Lefse Bakes begin on Wednesday morning, August 22 and continue through October 17. Flippers and rollers are needed each Wednesday morning at 8:00 am for nine lefse bakes. Mixers–please report no earlier than 7:30 am. Make plans now to attend one or all of the bakes. No previous experience needed. Coffee will be served mid-morning.

Lefse Laundry consists of the sheets from the cooling tables, dish towels, and the rolling pin and rolling board covers used weekly. This is a great way to help behind the scenes and can be done in your home. Laundry is ready for pickup on Wednesdays at noon and needs to be returned to the church in time for setup the following Tuesday.
