Gehtsemane Lutheran Church’s Baked Potato Buffet – Wednesday, September 13, 2018 was the first Baked Potato Buffet organized by Gethsemane Lutheran Church’s Social Ministry Committee. We hear on the news how one major health crisis can send a family into catastrophic debt and in recent months, the need for a fund by which our church can attempt to help members with catastrophic medical bills has become very apparent. For this reason, we set out to create and build a fund by which to fulfill this mission. The next step was to determine an unusual fundraiser that hasn’t been done before and yet was achievable. The committee received an idea for a Baked Potato Buffet. The plans were set in motion to organize this unusual dining experience. With the generous support of Gethsemane’s Lutheran Church’s members, food items were donated, the Fellowship hall was set for event and many hands in the kitchen and serving line fed the masses, and THRIVENT provided seed money for items that needed to be purchased. Turnout was better than hoped, the choices were thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended. Many people said “I don’t know where to start” when they started down the buffet line. Organizers are very satisfied with the turnout and support of our new ministry and to all who helped in any way, THANK YOU! Click here to view photo gallery
