First Presbyterian Church of Kasson has always taken pride in our mission work. For years we have partnered with Kasson SEMCAC in their “adopt a family” program at Christmas time. We also support SEMCAC’s Care and Share program that helps many shut-ins in our area.
In March we donate food and money to SEMCAC for Food Share Month. Dorothy Day House in Rochester is another mission we donate to. We collect soap, shampoo, and lotion for the residents.
We donate pies to the “Faith in Action” fundraiser. One Great Hour of Sharing is a Presbytery fundraiser at Easter.
We fill fish shaped boxes with donations that we send to the presbytery.
A local mission we support is to the K-M High School Komet Pantry. The pantry is a supply closet that high school students can access for needed supplies.
Many of our mission projects have been downsized in 2020 because of COVID-19. Meals on Wheels has continued strong during this time. We deliver one week every six weeks to about thirty families in the Kasson-Mantorville area.
