Pastor Carl Noble at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Perham recently received a double dose of good news.

First, Noble found out that the church had received an anonymous donation of $35,000 from somebody who's not even a member of the congregation.


"We don't even know who it's from," Noble said of the donation. "But we still want to find some way to thank them for their gift."

With the $35,000, Noble said the church decided to look into buying a new organ.
