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.

LIFT Small Groups (Living In Faith Together)
October 2018 – May 2019 | 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.
In the fall of 2017, NLC launched a new small group ministry, LIFT: Living In Faith Together. In this ministry, small groups of 6-8 people meet monthly in homes for a time of learning, fellowship, prayer, and time at the table. Normandale provides an accessible curriculum - a series of short videos on different topics of faith and anotated discussion guides, which initiate meaningful discussions of life and faith. Meet new friends, renew old friends, grow in faith together. Interested? Contact Jenny Bock at 952.977.9349 or email@example.com.
"...This past year, my goal was to be more involved at Normandale, and the LIFT group became an excellent way to make some new friends and establish myself as a young adult in the church." - NLC LIFT group member
"...I really enjoyed LIFT group...I gained a deeper understanding of my faith and a different, yet positive, perspective on life, living, faith, and God." - NLC LIFT group member
"We enjoyed the community aspect of LIFT - growing in faith with others and having something separate from the kids' activities." - NLC LIFT group members
Thursday Morning Bible Study
Thursdays, beginning September 6
There has been a lot of interest in the Bible of late. We hear bits and snippets to prove one’s point or to hammer someone over the head with “The Good Book”. We see how it is used and abused by many. If you’re interested in finding out what the Bible really says, and what it means for Christians today, then this class is for you. The Bible is as relevant today as it has been through the centuries, but we need to know what it says and in the context in which it was said, from Old Testament prophets to the words of Jesus himself.
