Social

We love to gather, talk, learn, and share a meal! Come join us for any or all of our social activities, no membership required.

Coffee Klatch

Do you prefer sitting for coffee and friendly conversation… over trying to listen and be heard at a busy Sunday coffee hour? Then consider midweek Coffee Klatch discussions with a small group of East Shore members and friends. There’s no set agenda, so topics can range from exploring spirituality to promoting justice and more. Come to practice love and build community with us! We’ve been meeting Wednesdays at 10:30 am to noon.

Daily Check-Ins

Members are hosting a check-in every weekday (M-F) 9:00-9:30 a.m. over Zoom. This is a great way to get to know some members and make friends. All are welcome! Connect with the East Shore community; share joys, concerns, and needs with one another.

East Shore Outdoors

Enjoy being outdoors? Join the East Shore Outdoors group! We are a warm and friendly community of members and friends who like to get outdoors and do active things. We come together on any particular day, to share our love for the great scenic beauty of the Pacific Northwest, and to walk, hike, snowshoe, ski or other activities. Email Amanda Strombom to get on the email list.

Fourth Wednesday Book Group

The 4th Wednesday Book Club is a jolly group of people of various ages who meet monthly on the 4th Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. Important to the fun of discussing our favorite books is the thoughtful, reflective quality of the interchange, the good humor, and the wit and wisdom of the group. Ask Nicole Duff, Membership Development Manager to get connected.

Grounds Team

If you like getting your hands dirty, this is the group for you! We keep the grounds nice and beautiful from helping with raking to making sure the buildings are in tip-top shape. We meet on Sundays after worship to work on the grounds, then take a break for a shared lunch and meeting. No skills or tools required, just a willingness to help! Join us on the 4th Sundays after worship, or contact Dianne Upton, Facilities Manager to get connected.

Guitar Jam

Do you enjoy playing guitar? Would you like to play with others but don’t get the chance very often? Are you looking to learn new songs, chords, or techniques? Or maybe you just enjoy singing in a relaxed setting? Then Guitar Jam is for you. We meet twice a month on the first and third Thursdays at 7:00 p.m. to share songs and tunes, in any style from folk to blues to rock and even original material. You don’t even have to be a guitar player. Other instruments welcome too. Come sing or play with us or just drop in and listen.

Men’s Breakfast Group

We meet monthly from September through May, usually on the third Saturday morning of the month at a member’s home. Breakfasts provide a relaxed time to reconnect and enjoy each others’ company. There are no dues and everyone is required to check their ego at the door. Our goal is good conversation, sharing and camaraderie. Email Tom Ball to get connected.

Women’s Perspective

Women’s Perspective encourages all those who identify as women to join together for mutual support, personal growth, and spiritual enrichment and to use their combined vision and strength to promote human dignity, environmental balance, and world peace. We hold regular social events and each year we hold a full weekend retreat at Rainbow Lodge in North Bend. Email Nicole to get involved or come to any of our events!
