People of Bethlehem, lend us your time…
The women of Bethlehem are putting on the bazaar once again this year. On Saturday, September 23, Bethlehem will be bustling with activity. There will be delicious baked goods for sale, bountiful canned delights, creative crafts, LEFSE(!) and of course the delectable soup and BBQ lunch in the fellowship hall.

What will be different is the involvement of the whole congregation. That’s right! It’s tough for the Circles to make it all happen on their own, so we are inviting ALL of you to help us out!

You can help in so many different ways:

  • Donating money to buy ingredients
  • Donating ingredients
  • Donating baked goods
  • Donating pies
  • DONATING YOUR TIME (These are crucial jobs that need to be filled! With no janitor, it is up to the Circle ladies to set up and take down all the tables. WE NEED HELP!)
    • Set up (Thursday and/or Friday, September 21/22)
    • Clean up (Saturday, September 23, 1:00)
    • Working on the day (Saturday, September 23)

For the list of jobs still available click here. Please think about how you are willing to pitch in to make this Soup’s on Bazaar a success. There are opportunities to sign up in the Narthex this Sunday, September 10, and next Sunday,  September 17. Also, you can conveniently call or text (give your name) Kathy Wagnild at 218-205-1447 to let her know how you want to help.

Thanks, Bethlehem. You rock! The Bazaar Committee
