Rooted in Christ • Growing in Grace • Seeding the Future
The Foundation was created in 2022 using proceeds from the sale of the Norman Lutheran Church parsonage. Those funds were invested and will continue to grow and allow us to spread the word of God into our community through a grant giving process.
The mission of the Norman Lutheran Church Foundation is to further and foster the kingdom of Jesus Christ in the Norman Lutheran Church and its surrounding communities. To that end, the Foundation will be awarding annual grants to qualified applicants to fufill its mission.
Groups and individuals will be able to apply for a grant to use for religious, community, literary, or educational purposes through an online application process. Grants will be awarded from invested principle and earnings originating from the sale of the Norman Lutheran Church parsonage.
The Norman Lutheran Church Foundation will award annual grants to the church, its members, and the community. Some anticipated examples include:
youth conference sponsorships
sponsoring community church and youth activities
support for the Kindred Area Ministerial Association (KAMA)
church and community support
The Norman Lutheran Church Foundation was created in 2022 from the proceeds of the sale of the Norman Lutheran Church parsonage.
In 1976, the congregation had a vision to build a parsonage to provide a safe, comfortable place for a pastor to live and work. The parsonage served as a home, parish office, and meeting place, including for confirmation, church council meetings, marriage counseling, choir practice, and more.
Continuing the legacy of the congregation's investment in the church, the money from the sale of the parsonage has been invested to grow and help spread the mission of Jesus through our church and community by utilizing these annual grants in creative ways.
