Ministry of Encouragement

Several times a year members of St. John’s go on a “Ministry of Encouragement” visit, or an MOE, to a social service agency or nonprofit organization in our community to thank their workers and volunteers for all they do for our community. Although our visits are short – only as long as it takes to set up the food, introduce ourselves, and present a certificate of thanks (about 15-20 minutes) – these MOEs are powerful ways to thank those whose work in our community goes largely unnoticed.

Since the start of this ministry in 2015, we have visited:

MOE to Prairie Meadows February 6

Next Ministry of Encouragement (MOE) recognition visit is to Prairie Meadows on Tuesday, February 6. Prairie Meadows, located here in Kasson, is a residence for senior citizens. Some residents enjoy independent living. Others receive daily care that extends through the end of life including memory care. We will be recognizing the complete 24 hour staff (50-60 people). Help by joining us to thank them in person and/or contribute treats or supplies. Sign up at the Welcome Center. For those coming on our short visit, we’ll meet inside St. John’s at 10:15 am and leave as a group. Contact Mary Adam at (507) 696-8469 or adam.mary.ma@gmail.com with questions. Ardis Grovdahl, co-chair of this group, may also help answer your questions.
