    PASTORAL STATUS: Our congregation has been engaged in a transitional process. Our Pastor of 25+ years retired on January 1, 2017.  South Zumbro Lutheran Church has been led for the last two years by an interim Pastor. We are now in the process of seeking a full time Pastor to shepherd our congregation. 

    AFFILIATION: We are a church affiliated with the Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (LCMC) and are always seeking ways to reach people with the saving message of Jesus Christ for their lives and for their communities.

    CONGREGATION INFO / LONGEVITY: South Zumbro Lutheran Church was founded by Norwegian immigrants in 1868. In its’ early days, the church, located in rural Kasson, belonged to the Hauge's Norwegian Evangelical Lutheran Synod. It later joined the American Lutheran Church (ALC). For many years, South Zumbro was a two-point congregation with Zion Lutheran Church in Dexter, Minnesota. In 1988, South Zumbro joined the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and returned to being an independent congregation. In January of 2011, the members of South Zumbro voted overwhelmingly to leave the ELCA and join Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (LCMC). Our worship style still reflects our heritage--low liturgical, with a strong emphasis on the hymns and Biblical preaching. An active lay leadership and great musical talent adds much to our worship. South Zumbro is a mission-minded church, reaching out not only to our local surrounding communities, but also the greater United States and the world. Our members come from Kasson, Mantorville, Dodge Center, Byron, Claremont, Rochester, Rock Dell, Hayfield and surrounding areas. South Zumbro has grown to over 800 in baptized membership. Average attendance for Sunday Service is 160 to 190.

    COMMUNITY: The Pastor must be willing to relocate to the Kasson community and possess the desire to be an active member of the community.

We desire to become servants of Christ by serving each other, our church, our community, and those beyond our borders. We are committed to equipping Christians through Biblical preaching and investigation of God's Word. We rely on prayer for direction in our personal lives and in the life of the Church.
