Outdoor Worship at North – Sundays at 9:30am

If you would rather worship outside, then please consider worshipping at Immanuel North every Sunday at 9:30am.  As long as the weather cooperates, this will be an outdoor service.  No need to sign up for this outdoor service.  No mask required outside! 

Mini-Worship Services - Every Wed. at 11 am

There is one Mini-worship service each week on Wednesday at 11:00am that will be reserved for those in the “high risk” category or those uncomfortable being with larger groups at this time.  This will be the schedule for the rest of the summer for Wednesday Mini-worship services.

LERT

Immanuel’s LERT Team is always in need of more volunteers to help with recovery efforts after major storms.  On August 10th there was a terrible storm that hit northern IL, and our LERT Chainsaw Team was called into action.  FEMA requires that anyone helping with disaster clean-up be trained.  Lutheran Church Charities will be providing a Basic LERT Training at Lord of Life in Elburn, IL on Saturday, Sept. 12th.  Please click on the button below to get more information and to register.

Inheritance—How do You See It?

As you think about leaving inheritance, what runs through your mind? Is your goal to have family hang on to “your things?” Do you sense a burden of obligation? Or, since we live under grace, can you see inheritance as gifts to family, which you get to give because God first gave to you? Would you like help gaining perspective? Ray Pagels, our LCMS Gift Planning Counselor can help. Contact Ray at 847-226-2262 or ray.pagels@lfnd.org.

Caring & Sharing – Stewardship in Difficult Financial Times

The Scriptures teach us to be First Fruits Percentage Givers.  That means we give according to what God has given us and we make those gifts a priority in our life.  This kind of Scriptural giving works when things are going well, and it works when things are not going well. 

If you are struggling financially then your percentage gift will automatically go down – no guilt, no shame, and no questions asked.  If that’s the case, we should be asking you, “How can we help.”  That’s the way it is supposed to work. 

However, if you have had no change in your current income, then we simply ask you to be faithful in your percentage giving.  God loves a cheerful giver and so we want to make it easy for you to give.  You, of course, can mail your offering to the church office, but we strongly encourage you to set up Electronic Giving through our website by clicking the link below.  Thank you for helping us Connect People to Christ for Life!
