Normandale Lutheran Church believes that nurturing the arts is an avenue for the growth of one's spiritual journey.  Understanding that all gifts are given from God in Jesus Christ, we facilitate and encourage artistic expression.

The Center for the Arts & Spirituality (CAS) strives to cultivate the arts and spirituality in a variety of ways.  In addition to written expression, the visual and performing arts invite all to find God in ways beyond words.  Sculpture, poetry, music, movement, dance, and more allow us to express our faith and grow on our spiritual journey.

Throughout the year, CAS will host Faith in the Arts, an intergenerational and interactive way to engage in various forms of art.  The 2016-2017 Faith in the Arts season will include the visual arts, music, and literature.  Each season will bring festival events, workshops, and opportunities for all ages.

Center for the Arts & Spirituality Workshops will be held throughout the year and are open to all.  Many of the workshops and classes will be with artists featured in the Faith in the Arts series.  Other workshops will be held in the summer months, such as the Brass Workshop and the upcoming Woodwind Workshop in the summer of 2017.

In addition, a cultivated concert series brings music to all.  From the Minneapolis Civic Orchestra Family Concert to the National Lutheran Choir, the concert series brings exceptional music and makes it accessible to all.

For those interested in music lessons, CAS offers applied music lessons with select instructors teaching a variety of instruments for those of all ages wishing to study music.

Most events are free and all are open to the public.
