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.

Advent Adult Book Study series

As we prepare for the coming Advent Season, we at Immanuel are particularly aware that God Is With Us in anticipation of what lies ahead. While as a community we actively await in this liminal place, we lean in toward the promise of light grounded in our Tacoma home.

During our Advent adult study time we are looking to hear from those in our wider community who are bearers of light.

On Sundays - December 2, 9, 16 and 23, from 9:15 - 10:15 - we will hear their stories, about their commitments and those they serve, where their hope lies and how we might possibly collaborate in shifting the balance toward the light.

December 2: Michael Benitez Jr: Dean of Diversity and Inclusion and Title IX Coordinator, UPS on Race and Pedagogy Institute.

December 9: Nellie Kim: program specialist and advocate with Pierce County Aging and Disability Resources

December 16: Miriam Barnett : CEO of the YWCA Tacoma/Pierce Co.  

December 23: TBA

Watch for updates - get these on your calendar! Invite friends - there will be coffee and snacks 🙂 Let’s fill the Fireside Room!!

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.
