In 1965 rural Minnesota, the ladies of the local Lutheran church fortify their flock with love, wisdom, and the food they prepare in the church’s basement kitchen. In Church Basement Ladies we meet the pastor, three cooks, and one daughter who run the kitchen and care for the congregation. This funny musical comedy sees the four women handle a Lutefisk Dinner, a funeral, an Easter Fundraiser, and, of course, a wedding.
