Community Brick Oven Build in SE MN

Inspired by brick ovens being the centerpiece of European village life in the 1800s and early 1900s, Racine United Methodist Church members are committed to creating a similar community space through building a wood-fired brick oven in Racine, MN.  Once built, the oven will be fired every month where all are invited to come and enjoy artisan breads, creative pizzas, and live music.  We are excited to explore how bread making and baking in a wood-fired oven would give us the opportunity to slow down, discover the sacred in the ordinary, and connect - REALLY connect - with people in our community. This would truly be the gift that keeps on giving as we plan to offer a variety of baking classes. Any future proceeds that come from this oven would go back into the community where there is need (i.e., a family with medical expenses, park restoration, food shelf).  Please help us make this goal a reality. PROMO: If you donate $100 or more, you will receive a coupon for a family dinner pizza party -OR- kid's birthday pizza party for 5-8 people. Thank you in advance for any donations made.
