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:
- Fairview Nursing Center
- City Hall
- K-M Elementary School
- Kasson Fire Department
- Kasson-Mantorville Middle School
- The Center Clinic
- Prairie Meadows
- Opportunity Services
- KM Ministerial Association
- Dodge Center Ambulance EMTs
- Dodge County Sheriff’s Posse
Kasson-Mantorville High School – May 15
St. John’s next MOE (Ministry of Encouragement) visit will be to thank our wonderful teachers at the Kasson-Mantorville High School on Wednesday, May 15. We will be thanking 55-60 people at 7:00 am for their daily interaction with our kids. We would love to have as many as possible join us by attending and/or donating food. Sign-up sheets are at the Welcome Center and if you plan to attend or donate food, please note the specific instructions on the sign-up sheets where to meet and when to have your food at St. John’s. If you need further information or have questions, please contact Ardis Grovdahl (634-7644) or firstname.lastname@example.org. Co-leaders for this outreach ministry are Mary Adam (696-8496) and Ardis Grovdahl.
