|Inland Northwest Lutheran Outdoor Ministries (INLOM)
operates two camp facilities: Camp Lutherhaven, which runs on a
year-round basis, and Shoshone Base Camp, which is in operation nine
months out of the year. Camp Lutherhaven sits on scenic Coeur d'Alene
Lake, nestled in Mica Bay, eight miles south of the city of Coeur
d'Alene. A large percentage of Concordia's youth attend Lutherhaven
each summer. Camp scholarships are available. The camp also hosts
family reunions, retreats, assemblies and other gatherings wishing to
take advantage of a welcoming, comfortable lakeside facility within
easy reach of town. Lake canoeing, waterfront "blobbing", a
challenge/ropes course, along with all the traditional camp experiences
(and more!) are just a few of the Lutherhaven specialties.
Guild is associated with Lutheran Women's Missionary League. The
meeting times are usually the second or third Thursday of the month.
The group organizes many missions projects, and the monthly meetings
always have a pertinent devotional time or fun activity. Proceeds from
projects are divided among Lutheran World Relief, several other mission
projects (at the discretion of the group), and church needs.

|Dinners for Eight
for Eight provides an opportunity for participants to dine with a
variety of others from Concordia on a four-month rotation. Once each
month, participants (either couples or a pair of singles) will do the
following: 1) host (set the date, time and place, and provide the main
dish and beverage), 2) bring a vegetable, 3) a salad, or 4) a dessert.
It is a wonderful way to meet those with whom we worship, and share a
delicious meal in the process!
