Serve

We’ve discovered that when we serve, not only does it turn the world upside down, it turns our lives upside down as well. In a really good way. And so we encourage people to find a place to volunteer at Normandale.


Additionally, Jesus taught that love leads us to serve others. Two thousand years ago, the original Christ-followers served and did so much good that they were called the people who "turned the world upside-down" (Acts 17:6). We have made that our goal as well.


On this page you can sign up for a First Serve in a variety of volunteer roles. A First Serve gives you the opportunity to test drive a position without any obligation to continue serving there if you don’t feel like it is a good fit. You can try a First Serve in as many areas as you want.


If you are willing to serve anywhere, let us know and we will make sure you end up in a volunteer position that you enjoy.

Facilities Team

First impressions are important, and most people decide whether or not they are going to come back to a church within two minutes of walking in for the first time.

As a member of the Facilities Team you will:

  • Keep the floors, windows, and bathrooms looking (and smelling!) fresh on a regular basis
