Bring your kids and enjoy this special worship service. Visitors are encouraged to wear ice fishing attire (flannels, boots, etc.). Make it fun. This is the third time the church has had the Grumpy Old Men Worship Service. The film's wedding scene from the first movie was filmed here in 1993, celebrating 30 years this year. The stars, Walter Matthau, Jack Lemmon, Burgess Meredith, and Ann Margaret were in the church wedding scene. Many members of Chisago Lake Lutheran Church were hired as movie wedding scene extras. The Heritage Room will be open, with the special "Green Hornet" fishing rod used by Walter Matthau in the movie. The picture above shows the rod being handed over from Todd Angel to Sally Barott for the church history collection. Other pictures/posters and more memories from that year will be on display to share with you. Come meet Pastor Brian King, the new minister. Enjoy his great messages along with his humor and fun.
After the service, stop by the Fellowship Hall for hot cocoa, coffee, and cookies. Contact: Sally Barott at sally[email protected]. Or, the church office coordinator Sue Abrahamson at 651-257-6300. Come early, plenty of parking, for this cozy comfy service...Ja sure. From U.S. Hwy. 8 in Center City, drive 1/2 mile north on #9 to the church. www.chisagolakelutheran.org
