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:

  • Fairview Nursing Center
  • City Hall
  • SEMCAC
  • 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
