Our 7th annual Lutheran night will include:
- A very Lutheran Dinner including hot-dishes and Jell-O molds!
- A very Lutheran Show with lots of spoofs, skits, and loads of laughter.
- A very Lutheran Silent Auction with gift baskets that can be bid on and bought.
This very Lutheran Evening is to gather and have some fun as brothers and sisters in Christ as we raise a little bit of money for Mount Calvary’s youth ministry.
Lutheran night is an annual Youth Ministry fund-raiser that includes a dinner and a silent auction. Our Youth Ministry program usually raises between $1,200 and $1,600 with this event. But to have a successful Lutheran Night we need everyone to pitch in. You can help in the following ways:
Baskets: Families are asked to either contribute $20 per child to help with purchasing materials for the baskets to be auctioned off or offer to assemble one of the baskets for auction (To be reimbursed for expenses)
Set-Up & Cooking: We will be preparing the meal on Sunday, January 30th, beginning at 2:00 pm.
Serving & Clean-Up: This shift will help serve, run the auction, and restore the Fellowship Hall to its clean and ready for ministry condition.
