YOUR DONATIONS are important to the success of our Lutefisk dinner and bake sale! 

Donation letters have been sent to the households of members. Last year 46% of the households contributed either potatoes, cranberry relish, butter, Norwegian baked goods, or money. The annual profit from the dinner has grown to over $23,000 and will go to ELCA mission support and congregational projects. All members are encouraged to make items for the bake sale, which had a profit of $8,1000 last year. Bake sale profits will be used to fund congregational projects. Help make this a tradition that will continue at St. John’s.
