See June newsletter for more information. -Kindred Community Days July 30th - August 1st Norman Members, At its April 7, 2021 meeting, the Norman Church Council discussed the summer service schedule and how to best optimize attendance during busy summer schedules. The Council determined that because many families head to the lake on weekends, it may be best to hold service on Wednesday evenings similar to what Davenport Church has been doing the past few years. Although the Council thought this was best for the Church and congregation, the feedback received from some members was a preference for traditional Sunday services. After hearing this feedback, the Council decided to send a survey to the Norman members to determine the congregation’s overall preference. The survey results showed that 60% of members preferred Wednesday services in the summer. However, the Council determined a compromise was best in order to satisfy the largest number of members. Therefore, this summer, starting Wednesday, June 2, Norman Church services will be held on Wednesday evenings at 6:00 PM, except for June 20 (traditional Sunday service at 9:00 AM), July 18 (First Lutheran Church at 1:30 PM for Pastor Katie’s ordination), and August 15 (traditional Sunday service at 9:00 AM). These dates and times will be included in future newsletters. If anyone has any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact any member of the Norman Church Council. We appreciate your feedback and hope to continue serving the best interests of the Norman Lutheran Church. Sincerely, Lukas Croaker, Norman Church Council President
