Made Known Event for Pregnancy and Infant Loss

Sunday, October 21 from 5:00-7:00 pm St. John’s will host “Made Known,” an event to connect parents who have experienced the loss of a pregnancy or infant with one another and with our community. All of God’s children are known and loved. Contact Lindsay with any questions at lindsay@stjohnskasson.org.

Fall Fest

On September 15, the Education Commission will be hosting our first annual Fall Fest! All are welcome as we share a meal of hot dogs, chips, and lemonade. There will be lawn games, inflatables, cotton candy, and even a campfire with s’mores! We hope you will join us for this fun fall celebration.

Curious about the call process?

Your St. John’s Call Committee is meeting to keep moving us forward toward calling a Lead Pastor. Our Ministry Site Profile, a kind of resume potential candidates will review to learn more about our congregation, has been submitted.

Join us Wednesday, July 25 at 7:30 pm for a Town Hall Meeting with Rev. Susan Miller from our Southeastern Minnesota Synod office. She’ll address what we can expect from the call process and answer your questions.

If you know a pastor that the Call Committee should consider, there are forms at the Welcome Center you can fill out and submit. These will be sent on to the synod office.
