Spiritual day retreat
Every year our members & church leaders engage in a planned day of spiritual renewal or leadership growth. Our hope is to provide a time where we can gather and focus on a topic that strengthens our individual spirits and the wholeness of our community. Usually in the spring.
NEIGHBORHOOD night out
Our members have expressed a desire to form more meaningful relationships-- here's an answer! Every few months we organize a Neighborhood Night Out. Drop the kids at church for quality child care, then walk with the group to a neighborhood eatery-- or meet us there. Whether you're new to First Immanuel or have been around forever, you'll appreciate this fun opportunity to connect with community.

annual yurt/CABIN CAMPING TRIP
Our annual late summer yurt/cabin trip takes us on an adventure to the beautiful Oregon coast or forests. We secure a grouping of yurts/cabins at a state park and enjoy some fun, fellowship, & ocean air. People of all ages, including families, are encouraged to attend.
ESTHER CIRCLE, WOMEN OF THE ELCA
The Esther Circle is active in creating Health Kits and School Kits that are shared through Lutheran World Relief. The Circle also co-sponsors our Tied Fleece Blanket Project, creating cozy blankets to send worldwide through LWR. No sewing required! Men, women, children, adults -- have fun and help others. Work parties happen at coffee hour from time to time.
We are blessed to have a residence offered to us on the Oregon Coast where each fall, our young adults can gather to be together and share experiences, stories, laughter, & prayer with one another. Plenty of outdoor time is woven into this great annual getaway!
