On Wednesday, February 24, we’ll be doing our first 2016 Ministry of Encouragement visit (MOE) to SEMCAC (20 E Veterans Memorial Hwy, Kasson).
What is an MOE?
For those of you who may not be familiar with an MOE, it is a quick visit to thank workers as various social service agencies and nonprofit organizations 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. (In 2015 we visited the workers at Fairview Nursing Center to thank them for all the help they provide to our seniors and to Kasson City Hall to thank them for helping to make Kasson a great place to live.)
SEMCAC is the Community Action Agency in our area. Their mission is to assist people to achieve or maintain independence and self-reliance through their own and community resources. They offer important services in our community including a food shelf, transportation services, and housing and energy assistance. These folks really make a difference in our community, and it’s wonderful to have an opportunity to thank them for all they do.
On Wednesday, February 24, we’ll gather at St. John’s at 10:00 for prayer and then drive over together to SEMCAC.
We’d like you to come along. And if you can’t come, please sign up to bring bars, or fruit or veggies, or drinks or paper products. There’s a way for all of us to be involved.
As those who participated in our 2015 MOEs discovered, these visits are powerful for both for those we visit and those of us who go along. God always shows up big time!
