Advent Adult Study: Lean in to the Light

December 9, 2018 @ 9:15 am - 10:15 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 9:15 am on Sunday, repeating until December 23, 2018

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 a.m. in the Fireside Room, 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: Heidi Stoermer: Founder and Director of Feed253 whose goal is to end hunger in Tacoma.


Watch for updates – get these on your calendar!

Invite friends – there will be coffee and snacks 🙂
Let’s fill the Fireside Room!!

For more information contact Lynn Raisl or Jeanette Lunceford.


Winter is the oldest season,

But quietly beneath the snow,

Seeds are stretching out and reaching,

Faithful as the morning glow.

Carry nothing but what you must.

Lean in toward the the Light.

Let it go, shake off the dust.

Lean in toward the Light.

Today is now, tomorrow beckons.

Lean in toward the Light.

Keep practicing resurrection.

The shadows of this world will say,

There’s no hope – why try anyway?

But every kindness large or slight,

Shifts the balance toward the light.
