Every year, our congregation participates in the following activities. These are all wonderful ways to connect with each other in play, in good heart, and in celebration! We hope you will participate in all these events with us throughout the year. The best way to be informed about these event is to be on our Newsletter and E-news mailing list. Email office@heartofeugene.org to request to be put on the mailing lists.

Yearly Activities:

Night at the Ems – this is a family fun night where we go to the Eugene Emeralds together. We traditionally tailgate in the parking lot before the game (burgers, hotdogs, etc.) and then sit together for the game. One year Pastor Dan got to throw the first pitch!  And in other years the choir or other musical groups in the church performed the National Anthem.

Dining for Dollars – this is the largest annual fundraiser for the church.

Church in the Park – Once a year, normally around the 4th of July holiday, the congregation has worship outside in a local park, with a bbq and potluck dinner to follow the service.

Softball League: Team Heart of Eugene – all friends of FCC, 18 and older, are invited to join this co-ed, recreational softball league for 10 games in the summer. All friends younger than 18 and those who don’t wish to play are invited to cheer us on! Our first priority here is to have fun. A close second is to win. Our 2014 summer season ended with a 5 wins and 5 losses!

Church Camp Out – Labor Day weekend retreat for all ages, this year the camp will be held at Suttle Lake. We play, rest, worship, and study together in a beautiful setting. Scholarships are available for individuals and families.
