We have teams organized by their service type that will meet at a variety of times during September so we can best fit into your schedule. Keep an eye out on, email, and First Norfolk social media to learn more about these teams and to sign up to help us as we serve South Norfolk. Please contact Lauren Bassett,, if you have any questions about Big Serve!
