Caring Connections

Caring Connections

 

  • Join Us for Sunday Worship, Weekly 10:00 am virtual activities, or just say "hello" at our Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/normluth/.
  • Breathe. Just Breathe. Connect with God and YOURSELF! Your well-being is paramount, too! Let God be your rock.
    Read a reassuring scripture like Psalm 27:1 - The LORD is my light and my salvation-- whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life. And try to take today just one breath at a time. 
  • Check-in with Your Neighbors - put a fun note in their mailbox to say "Hi," or start a conversation from a safe distance. How are they doing? 
  • Window/Sidewalk Art & Yard Signs - encourage the neighborhood!
    Click here for a few ideas: Stained Glass Window Art or Bible Verse Chalk Art
  • Make or Send Cards to cheer more isolated NLC members (use NLC cards or create your own!)
    Contact Jenny Bock at jbock@normluth.org.
  • Call/Video chat with your friends and/or join the NLC "Call Team" - help check in with our NLC family. Let's build community together (while apart)!
    Contact Jenny Bock at jbock@normluth.org.
