The monthly smorgasbord not only offers an opportunity for LOTI friends and neighbors to gather for fellowship and enjoy genuine Scandinavian hospitality, but the meals also support the benevolence work of our congregation.  Proceeds are directed toward those less fortunate in our immediate community.  Through the proceeds of the monthly smorgasbord, LOTI supports Joyce Community Food Shelf, Our Saviour’s Housing and Community Emergency Services.
