Youth Ministries

If you’re in grades 7-12, come join the love and support of one of our youth programs! This is your place to feel safe and encouraged, and to know you are loved for who you are. Bring your friends, make new friends, even develop leadership skills.

Youth Welcome Statement
We affirm that all people are created in the image of God, and as beloved children of God, all are worthy of God’s love and grace. We welcome ALL people into full participation of youth ministries at Normandale Lutheran Church and celebrate the diversity of sexual orientation, gender identity, race, ethnicity, age, faith history, socioeconomic status, and physical and mental ability. We embrace this diversity as a gift from God.

Now is the time to register for Fall Youth Programs!


Grades 7-9*
Wednesdays | 6:45-8:00 pm

Having a place of peace for all confirmands and the opportunity to step away from busy schedules to discover how God is working in the world is very important. Confirmation is a time for young members to deepen their faith, ask tough questions, build friendships, and learn from caring adult mentors.

*Confirmation will be transitioning to a 2-year program (grades 7-8) in 2022-2023.
