February Ladies Guild Meeting

The Ladies Guild February meeting will be Thursday, February 3 at noon with a potluck.  The committee is furnishing desserts and members with last names M-Z please bring a dish to pass.

Caring for a loved one can be difficult and challenging. Many caregivers feel isolated and alone. Connecting with others who understand your experience can be helpful. Those who care for a child or adult with chronic illness or Dementia/Alzheimer’s are invited to attend our Caregiver Support Group. 

Questions, please call Laura Nie 815-988-4046.

Thursday, Feb. 3rd, at 6:00 pm in the Adult Ed Room.

Join us at our next Compassionate Friends meeting on Tuesday, February 8th.  Questions, email

Photo Directories Available for Pick-Up

If you had your photo taken (or submitted it online) and/or paid for a copy of the directory that we’d planned two years ago, you can call the church office to arrange for pick-up or stop by the church office between 7:30am – 4:00pm to get your copy. We are not asking for payment for these directories; however, we’ll welcome donations to cover the cost incurred to print them in-house.

If you don’t need a printed directory, all of the photos/information it contains are available through Immanuel’s online member portal at, or simply click on the box labled CCB on our new Immanuel website (

Matter of Balance Begins February 1st!

Lifescape’s A Matter of Balance Class is FREE and begins Tuesday, Feb. 1st at Immanuel North’s Campus at Countryside Mall – Rt. 76. The class meets for 8 weeks from 9-11am. This class is not just for Immanuel North attenders it is for everyone – invite a friend!  Once we acquire use of the new facility at Timberlane, classes will be held there.  Older adults who are concerned about falling will set realistic goals to increase activity, learn ways to reduce risk factors that cause falls, and learn exercises that increase strength and improve your balance. Call the church office or check the Connection Center for information and to register.

Blood Donations Desperately needed!!

Immanuel’s Care Ministry is hosting a Blood Drive with the Rock River Valley Blood Center at Immanuel on Friday, Feb. 4th from 2-6pm.  Donating only takes about an hour and can save up to three lives!  There is a blood shortage in our area so schedule your donation today by using the QR code above or call Sue in the church office.  RRVBC is still testing successful blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies.
