The 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.
56th Lutefisk Dinner!

2017 Lutefisk News
Make plans now to help with the 56th annual lutefisk dinner to be held on Thursday, October 26, 2017. Lefse bakes will begin on August 23 and continue for nine weeks. In addition to lefse bakes, you can volunteer in many different capacities. Renee Solberg will continue as dinner chairperson; Shelley Gustafson and Marge Albright will again serve as co-lefse leaders.
If you have been looking for a new project to become involved in, the lutefisk committee begins meeting this summer. Our current committee members have all served many years and for this dinner to continue, new leaders need to join the committee. Please think about saying “YES”!
The lutefisk committee is pleased to report that most proceeds from the 2016 dinner and bake sale have been dispersed. Many organizations and groups have benefited from our proceeds. THANK YOU!
