Mission: Tuesday Open House is the pastor’s initiative outreach ministry to expand knowledge of persons with Norwegian interests and/or background about Mindekirken and Norwegian culture via five areas of interest. Areas are: Norwegian literature, historic/contemporary Norwegian life, music, theology/faith/life, and art.
The program provides an opportunity for fellowship, a time for devotions, and a time to eat a lunch.
