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:

Dodge Center Ambulance EMT group on November 29

The next Ministry of Encouragement (MOE) will be on November 29 at 5:30 pm. When you see an ambulance, do you say a prayer for the passenger/victim? Join MOE on Thursday, November 29 to express appreciation to the Dodge Center Ambulance EMT group. We will meet at 5:30 pm in the St. John’s narthex and drive as a group to their monthly meeting in Dodge Center. Sign-up sheets are at the Welcome Center desk. Questions, call Mary Adam at (507) 696-8469 or Ardis Grovdahl at (507) 634-7644. This visit (usually 30 minutes) says thank you to a group of people no one wishes to need! Thank you and God bless.
