Giving just got easier

After months of careful research, we are excited to announce we have a new platform for giving – Tithe.ly! We now have the opportunity to set up automated giving or send one-time gifts through our website OR through a convenient app on your phone. Simply visit stjohnskasson.org/giving or search for the “ELCA Giving Tool by Tithe.ly” app to get started.

Make the most of your gifts:

  • Select ACH/bank to incur the lowest fees.
  • Opt to “Cover card processing fees” to pay the fees and ensure your full intended amount goes directly to St. John’s.

If you haven’t participated in electronic giving in the past, now is a great time to consider setting up this option! It’s easy and secure. It also makes consistent giving one less thing to think about because Tithe.ly works even through vacations, inclement weather, and forgotten wallets. St. John’s will continue to offer envelopes for donations, but we ask that you consider electronic giving!  Giving electronically, is a tremendous time savings when counting and recording donations, it also provides the church with more reliable and steady donations.

Please take this time to consider, if you are able, to enhance your current giving. Even a small step up – such as a $5 or $10 periodic increment over time provides St. John’s the valuable support we need.

If you have any questions about the new system, council members or office staff are available to help!

Participants enrolled in our previous automated giving option will be receiving information about the changeover. Your current automated giving will end April 30, 2019.

Thank you for generosity to St. John’s. We appreciate all the ways you give so that we may live as witnesses of Jesus Christ in our community.

Exciting changes for CKP

Creation Kids Preschool has a TWO THUMBS UP announcement!

Proudly starting our 21st year of preschool, we are full of excitement to share the news of our Before & After Care program. This will be full-time, 5 days a week for registered Creation Kids preschoolers at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Kasson, MN. Monday through Friday hours are 6:15 am – 6:00 pm.

Beginning September 2019, with convenient options to help simplify your busy life, we invite you to explore our new program, Little Lambs. CKP Little Lambs will consist of a structured play group that will include the lunch hour with friends and a mix of small and large motor activity time, creative arts/activities, reading/story time, outdoor play (weather permitting) and a rest period depending on your child’s preschool programming for that particular day. Details on classes and Before and After Care for 2019-2020 are in the registration information at stjohnskasson.org/preschool

We invite you to visit our booth at the Dodge County Expo at Triton High School on Saturday, March 30 8:00 am – 2:00 pm. Along with fun games and prizes, we will have more information about this new program. Registration for preschool will open to the public on March 30 and for current preschool and St. John’s families, registration is now open.

For questions, please reach out to any of the following associated with Creation Kids Preschool; our administrator, board members, or teachers: Lindy Bungum, Tessa Carolan, Lindsay Colwell, Risa Fellows, Katie Freerksen, Anne Holtan, Rachel Linbo, Jessica Paulsen, Amanda Sabelko, Phyllis Sands, Kresta Schultz, Teresa Watkins, or email preschool@stjohnskasson.org.

Please feel free to pass this news along! Limited spots available so don’t wait too long!

We would like to thank everyone, past and present St. John’s Staff, board members, teachers, our congregation and community, and 20 years of students, parents and families for your love and support in growing this amazing preschool program. We realized there was a need in our community and we can now answer back by expanding our ministry with loving hearts and your continued support!

May God continue to bless you all!
