Grace and Mercy For Everyone.

If you love those who love you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who do good to you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. And if you lend to those from whom you expect to receive, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, to get back the same amount. But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, for he is kind to the ungrateful and the evil. Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful. Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven; give, and it will be given to you. - Luke 6:32-38

We believe that God has called us to serve our community and announce His love to this world. Through our lives, jobs, families circles and friendships God has uniquely placed in our lives, we are to commit our lives to demonstrating God's immeasurable love as best as we can. When Jesus preached to the crowd in the verse above, he was quick to say that we are called to love those who are hard to love - not just the ones that love you in return. Immanuel exists to do just that. Express God's unending love and mercy to those that need it the most.

  • First Time To IMMANUEL?

    Welcome! It is a real joy for us to meet and welcome newcomers and to tell you about all the good things God is doing in our church family. For over 140 years  it has been our mission to "lead people in a growing relationship with Jesus Christ." That means that no matter where you've come from and where you are on your spiritual journey, we want to come alongside to inspire, equip and encourage you to live out a life that will bring glory to God and be a blessing to the world with Christ Jesus in the center.

  • Children are important at immanuel

    God has uniquely gifted Immanuel to serve families.  During the week, our building is filled with children from birth to six years in our Open Arms Early Childhood Center.   On the weekends, there is Sunday School available for all ages.  For children under three, there is a Parent and Child class.  For children three through high school, there are multi-aged classes.  Confirmation is also offered during the week for youth beginning in Fifth grade.

  • Reopening following COVID-19

    COVID-19 Update: June 9, 2021
    Register for ​In-Person Worship online at: or call the Church Office at 847-724-1034

    ​We are OPEN for In-Person Worship, but we are asking that you register first, to allow for contact tracing, if that becomes necessary.

    With the State of Illinois moving to Phase 5 of Reopening, we are implementing a few changes... These next three will begin at In-Person Worship:

    1. A face-covering mask is still a good idea. 
    2. If you have been vaccinated (and it has been at least 2 weeks since your final dose), you will have the option of not wearing the face mask while seated in the sanctuary, but we ask that you respect those who may be less comfortable without a mask.
    3. Consider, out of love and respect for your neighbor, wearing a mask when moving around inside the building.

    Screening is not a requirement at this time, and we are allowing congregational singing, as well as congregational responses during the worship service.

    Assigned seating is not necessary, but we do ask that you abide by the "Social Distancing" rules both while in the pew and when attending communion. Also, please go outside to continue fellowship and avoid gathering in the narthex.

    If you chose not to enter the building, the option is available for you to view via ZOOM live at 10:45 am on Sundays or the recorded version of the Messages will be available on the Website on the following Tuesday.

    ​We hope these accommodations will continue to keep everyone safe while still allowing an opportunity to gather for Christian fellowship.
