The Gospel in the Passover

Passover is an ancient Hebrew feast, celebrated annually, commemorating the rescue and deliverance of the children of Israel from 400 years of slavery in Egypt. Join us as we journey through the specific elements of Passover to discover how they show us God’s plan for our deliverance.
     Pastor Phillip Herring has served on the pastoral staff at First Norfolk since the fall of 1998. He currently serves as the Associate Pastor for Education. Now in his 24th year, his passion for relational disciple-making is greater than ever.
     In addition to overseeing all Women’s Ministry LIFEgroups as a volunteer at First Norfolk, Jan Herring works as a Marketplace Chaplain with Marketplace Ministries out of the Dallas, TX area.
     Together, they have three sons, two daughters-in-law, and one 6 month old grandson - Emmett James Herring.

LIFEgroups for senior adults are a way for you to continue to grow in your faith, be surrounded by people who care for one another, and serve others. Click on the link below for the latest guide.
