Our Wednesday evening activities focus our efforts on discipleship. Believing that Jesus was crystal clear when He gave his final instructions to go into all the world and make disciples, we have clarified the purpose of our Wednesday evening events to strategically focus on the task of Disciple making - or making missionary followers of Jesus.

Thursday is usually a school and work day! Being sensitive to your family's needs, we have scheduled these activities from 6:00 pm- 7:30 pm so you have the opportunity to experience Wednesdays at First and be able to get your family home earlier in the evening.

Leadership Pipeline at First Norfolk

Who are leaders at First Norfolk? What qualities identify them as such? How does a person become a leader in our church? These questions, along with many others, will be answered in our new eight-week course designed to help develop Godly men and women for positions of leadership in the future of our church. By the end of this course, you will know who we are as a church, and our mission, vision, and strategy for making disciples at First Norfolk. A manual for this course will be provided to all participants.
