Tuesday Open House will be offering virtual presentations during the pandemic. Please check back for updates, as well as recordings of past presentations that you can view if you were unable to tune in the first time. 

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 share happenings at Mindekirken with the participants.  Participants are welcome from all over to meet on-line with persons interested in Norwegian and/or Scandinavian culture and heritage. 

Tuesday Open House is an outreach ministry.  Each program is opened with announcements and a brief devotion read by a volunteer.  We are saddened that our in-person programs had to be cancelled. We are trying to offer a once a month zoom presentation.  We tested hosting a virtual program in September and October which seemed to be quite successful. Hopefully sometime early in the New Year we will be able to resume our regular programs. As yet we have no indication the church will be open for large meetings. All of us miss the comradery so this virtual format is one way we can keep in touch. 

Our speakers receive an honorarium as usual.  Any donation you would like to share with our TOH program will be appreciated.  You may mail a donation directly to Mindekirken identifying TOH on the memo line of the check, or donate via our website—selecting TOH Special donation from the pull down menu in the “Choose a fund” field.

Everyone is welcome to join us on zoom!

October 6, 2020: Emma Boyum, Winner of Alt for Norge

Emma Boyum is the most recent winner of Alt for Norge, a Norwegian reality television program where Norwegian-Americans compete for a chance to meet their long lost Norwegian relatives. In the 10th, and likely final season, Emma and her cast mates ate, skied, and sang their way through Norway, learning a great deal about Norwegian language and culture. Through all of the rigorous challenges and competition, Emma made lifelong friends with her competitors and fell in love with Norway. She can’t wait to return to the home of her ancestors. Emma enjoyed sharing her experience on Alt for Norge at Tuesday Open House. View her presentation now:
