Family Gatherings in the Fellowship Hall
Begins this Sunday, August 2

It can be challenging for families who wish to participate at in-person gatherings in this season when we are not able to offer activities for children. We are actively looking for ways for families to participate safely. Beginning this Sunday, August 2, we are trying something new. We are opening the Fellowship Hall for families to reserve a table where they can sit together in a socially distanced environment to watch the live worship gathering. If we find that this is sustainable, we will continue to offer this opportunity to families. We’ll provide hand sanitizer and activity bags and we ask that older children and adults use face masks. We need to know you’re coming, as space is limited. Register at firstnorfolk.org/regather. We look forward to seeing you and your children.

Beyond groups that meet up on the internet, our church also offers a Sunday Morning LIFEgroup by telephone. To access this group, individuals may dial  1-877-407-0030 , when promoted, enter the code 0030.
Our first priority is to care for our members. We recognize that over the coming days, you may have a need that you need help with. If you have a need please contact the church office at 757-461-3226 or click the link below.
The primary way we care for one another is through prayer. We maintain a prayer list of concerns that are shared with us. Our members regularly use this list to pray for others. Please download the list and pray for these requests. If you have a request, please let us know and we will add it to the list.
