Confirmation Small Group Leader

These leaders meet with small groups of confirmands during the school year. Confirmands and leaders meet in grade-specific large group time led by the pastors for meaningful discussion, learning, and fellowship, as well as small group discussions and sharing time.

Lenten Mentor

Pair with a confirmand and serve as their mentor for five weeks during Lent. Mentors and Mentees usually meet for 30 minutes before or after the Lenten Worship on Wednesday evenings. The Lenten Mentors program exists to give confirmation students one more adult in their lives that they can trust, talk with, and by whom can be guided in their faith journey.

High School Small Group Leader

Small groups of high school students meet with group leaders monthly for meaningful discussion, learning, fellowship, and fun!

Kids Night Out Helpers

Kids Night Out takes place on the second Saturday of every month from October-May. Come help run the welcome/check-in table, prepare and serve dinner to the kids, or run a craft station. Click here to sign up!

Reading Buddies Chaperones

Accompany NLC youth on Monday nights to Reading Buddies at Hope Academy, a service opportunity for youth to spend time each week eating dinner, reading, working on homework, and playing with Normandale House kids.
