Step Forward and Engage | Serve With Us
Led by the Holy Spirit we are called to use our time, talent, and spiritual gifts to walk in deeper relationship. By God’s design, each of us can make their unique, personal contributions. The multiplied effect of an entire community serving together moved by the Holy Spirit is a radical, life-altering movement. We invite you to step forward!
Whether you have lots of time to volunteer and serve or only a few hours every once in a while, uncover the ways you are called to participate. Our Normandale community serves in a variety of places in a variety of ways. We serve the person next to us. We serve our church. We serve our city and community. We serve our world. What areas are your heart, mind, and spirit most passionate about?
