5 Reasons You Don’t Want to Miss It:

1. Behind the scenes. While these Swedish traditions are known for gathering blue hairs and life-long Lutherans, its preparation involves a diverse and unexpected crowd. Where else have you seen a Southern Methodist and an Italian Catholic turning lefse? Pre-schoolers have been known to sprinkle the flour between rolls. New visitors mingle with kitchen regulars. By late October, all kinds of people know where to find rolling pins and warming trays. New friendships are born and it’s a team effort.

2. High-Caliber Lefse. We have several pros in our midst who oversee the potato peeling, mixing, rolling, and turning. Some lefse doesn’t make the cut. And our meatballs are made from a secret Swedish recipe. Only the finest for this event.

3. More than a Meal! Come for the fine fare, but stay for the bake sale, silent auction, and photo booth (complete with Nordic props). Our quilters will have quilts and fleece blankets for sale – purchases support this ministry that warms hundreds in need each year.

4. Tis the Season. Thanksgiving is still a month away, but you’re ready for a cozy meal prepared with love. As the nights grow longer and the weather chills, the best prescription is gravy and melted butter. We’ve got you covered until it’s turkey time.

5. What You Give Helps. It’s about the food and the fellowship, but it’s also an important fundraiser at Zion. This event supports all kinds of valuable ministries at Zion and in the neighborhood we love. Your ticket sales, donations, purchases, and presence add up to make this event a special way Zion grows and gives!
