ADULTS, people in fellowship

Adult Ministry

Adult Ministry at Normandale is shaped for spiritual growth and a shared journey. We seek to walk in closer relationship with Jesus Christ and each other, to grow in our faith, and to create authentic relationships with each other as we encourage and support one another in our life’s journey. We recognize that the diversity in our togetherness is what grows us into a complete community.

Questions? Wondering about finding the right place for you? We’d love to help! Please contact Jenny Bock at jbock@normluth.org / 952.929.1697 x349. 

LIFT Small Groups (Living In Faith Together)

October – May 2017 | Once per Month | In Homes
 
In the early church, the disciples of Jesus Christ met together in homes, for the purpose of hearing the teaching of the apostles, fellowship, prayer, and the breaking of bread (Acts 2:42). In the intimacy of these gatherings, the people were strengthened to live out their lives of faith. A new small group initiative is underway at NLC! In the context of our congregation and current culture, NLC staff have identified the need to facilitate LIFT small groups & are committed to providing the support and resources necessary to begin this exciting ministry. We imagine 6-8 people gathering in homes once a month for the program year, defined as October - May. We will provide curriculum with enough simplicity that facilitation is easy. Meet new friends, renew old friends, grow in faith together. Interested? Contact Jenny Bock at 952.929.1697 x349 or jbock@normluth.org.
