A church in a rural northeastern South Dakota city plans to raise money for a nearby congregation recovering from a fire.
Bergen Lutheran Church in Bristol will give proceeds from its fourth annual threshing bee on Sunday to Westside Wesleyan Church, which was badly damaged by fire last month.
The event raises money for community causes. Last year’s festivities raised $7,000.
Event organizer Karen Johnson says the Bergen Lutheran congregation voted unanimously to help Westside Wesleyan following the fire.
Westside Wesleyan Church board member David Dulitz says he’s unsure if the church will be remodeled or rebuilt completely.
Sunday’s activities will include potato-picking, the chance to use old-fashioned farm equipment and the opportunity to ride in a covered wagon.
