In Church Basement Ladies, three ladies in the church's kitchen take care of preparing and serving the food for the congregation. They also act as problem solvers as they handle special events, help various members of the church, and halt near-disasters. All of it is done with plenty of humor and music.
A Mighty Fortress is Our Basement, the sequel to Church Basement Ladies, continues the humor and music tradition. Faith and friendships continue as one lady gets her driver's license, another gets her first pair of high-heels, and the ladies altogether serve up more delicious recipes and laughs.
Bekki Jo Schneider directed Fortress, which features Rita Thomas as Vivian Snustad, Tina Jo Wallace as Mavis Gilmerson, Colette Delaney as Karin Engelson, Cary Wiger as Pastor E.L. Gunderson, and Katelyn Webb as Beverly Signe (Engelson) Hauge.
