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.

Grades 7-8
Monthly Lesson with Student & Parent | 6:45-7:45 pm

Confirmation culminates with the Affirmation of Baptism service each year on Reformation Sunday. We believe that hearts and hands must accompany our heads in the journey of faith, and so we offer a monthly lesson for students and parents, along with a catalog of elective credits students earn throughout each year. By the time students are confirmed, we want them to have grown in relationships with their peers, with the congregation across generations, and within their families!
