It’s “Lefse, Cookies, and Much More” this year at Calvary Lutheran Church’s 18th annual Christmas Bake Shoppe.

Women of Calvary will be sponsoring this event on Saturday, Dec. 7, from 9-11 a.m. in the Perham church’s Fellowship Hall.

Returning will be the annual feature of an assortment of three dozen fancy cookies. Calvary’s Smakte Godt (tastes good) Lefse will again be available. Proceeds from the bake shoppe will be donated to many local and regional ministries and needs.

A snack shop will offer warm beverages and sweet treats for shoppers. Donations at this shop will be given to the Baby Bin ministry.

New this year will be a garden shop, featuring garden art and accessories. This could provide a start for planning a spring garden or finding a gift for a gardener.

A youth shop will feature four varieties of pine wreaths for purchase.

Other shops will include: bread store, candy store, card shop, cookie shop, craft shop, global mission store, and the pantry.

This tradition grows each year with more treats and items. Also included are crafts and gifts made by congregation members.
