Immanuel Lutheran makes lefse, a Norwegian flatbread, every autumn for its Fall Festival

The "Holy Rollers" at Immanuel Lutheran are at it again!

Each year in October, Immanuel Lutheran congregants begin making lefse, a soft Norwegian flatbread.

According to the church, lefse is truly an artform requiring dough to be rolled super thin and then cooked on a special griddle. The basic ingredients are potatoes, flour, cream, butter, a little sugar and salt.

Lefse plays a very important role in Scandinavian tradition. No meal is complete during the holidays without a plate of buttered lefse.

Selling lefse at the Fall Festival is a tradition at Immanuel Lutheran. This year the festival is on Saturday, November 4th with lefse being sold at 10 a.m. Lunch consisting of soup, rolls and dessert will begin at 11:30. Baked items will be sold during the Festival as well.

Volunteers are always welcome to become "Holy Rollers" for the month of October at Immanuel. Call Shelly at 503-981-1036. Mark your calendars for the Fall Festival on Saturday, Nov. 4. Come early — lefse sells out each year!

Immanuel Lutheran is located at 1036 E. Lincoln St.
