Adult Nurture

Adult Sunday Book Discussion

Adults are provided opportunities to explore their faith from differing perspectives, and to talk about ways in which we live out our faith. There is no agenda in which a particular perspective dominates. Rather, the group’s thinking is stimulated by diverse readings and, very importantly, by listening to each other. Prior reading NOT REQUIRED. We meet in the Fireside Room on Sundays at 9:15 – 10:15 a.m. We welcome visitors! Childcare is provided in the nursery during this time.

New Adult Book Study Discussion begins February 25—March 25
Immigration: Reality, Theology, and Strategic Questioning is a 5-week class that will explore some of the basic realities of US policy towards immigrants, with a focus on DACA recipients and Dreamers; time spent looking at three key theological emphases that support Christian inclusion for migrants and refugees; and an introduction to strategic questioning as a skill to foster   constructive conversation. Rev. David Wright will lead the class. Handouts available soon and during class.

Fork in the Road - Wednesday Potluck Dinner

Make space for grace in the middle of your week. Join us every second Wednesday (usually, check the calendar) of the month for an evening of stories and breaking bread in community. We will gather for a potluck dinner (with a theme) in Fellowship Hall, hear from a member of the Immanuel family about a turning point in their life, and close with music and communion.  We hope to see you there! During Lent and Summer we take a break, see Lenten Soup Supper below.

Tuesday Nights at Immanuel - TN@IPC

On Tuesday nights there are opportunities through out the month to explore one’s faith and what it means to live a faith-filled life. A range of thoughtful and provocative videos, “in house” discussion leaders, presentations by people from the greater Tacoma community, and even occasionally from the national religious scene, make Tuesday discussions lively and well-attended sessions. It is not unusual for us to meet at the Grand Cinema to enjoy a film with discussion and libations afterward. No preparation is required; visitors are free to drop in as their schedules permit. If we are at the church, we meet in the Fireside Room, 7- 8 p.m. We conclude with a few minutes quiet time, followed by fellowship for those whose schedules permit down at a local pub. Check this website calendar for current events scheduling.

Lenten Soup Suppers

Every Wednesday during Lent at 6 p.m., folks from the congregation and community share a simple meal and conversation on topics pertaining to themes especially relevant during the Lenten season. After the table conversations we gather in a circle for prayer, scripture, and quiet worship/communion and conclude by 7 p.m.
