Music at Normandale
At Normandale music is central to our worship. Music is an expression of praise, prayer, contemplation, and reflection that connects us more deeply with each other and with God. Divine connection can be found in the alternating sounds and silence of music. Explore and participate in a choir or ensemble and share your gifts with us, or join us at one of our concerts.

Center for the Arts & Spirituality (CAS)
Normandale Lutheran Church believes that nurturing the arts is an avenue for the growth of one's spiritual journey. Understanding that all gifts are given from God in Jesus Christ, we facilitate and encourage artistic expression.
