The Community Meal
It’s more than a meal, it’s belonging.
Community Meals To-Go - Thursday, November 5 from 5:00 to 6:30p.m.
Immanuel Is Partnering With The Community Meal to provide FREE meals to-go for people in our community which will be given out in our parking lot via DRIVE-THRU! Drive thru the designated lanes and bring your meal home or eat in your car. Let’s keep social distancing. There are NO deliveries or dining in the building. Be assured we are following all food safety initiatives. Visit CDC.gov for the latest most accurate information.
You can help!
We need cookies for dessert! Bake your favorite home-made cookies and put each single serving size in a zip lock bag. If you can help, call the church office at 847-359-1549 to let us know you’ll be baking. Deliver you zip-locked cookies to Immanuel by Wednesday Nov 4.

What is The Community Meal’s mission?
“Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.” – Romans 12:13
Our mission is to show Christian hospitality by providing a welcoming place, nourishing food, a listening ear, and acceptance to all regardless of faith beliefs or economic means. The simple act of sharing a meal together gives hope to the elderly, lonely and hungry. We strengthen friendships and inspire a community that will be inclusive and loving towards one another.
A Thank You Following the April 27, 2017 Meal:
Joyful servants is all I can think of when Immanuel Lutheran Church hosts the Community Meal. Everyone greeted me with a smile and “how can I help?” With 38 volunteers embracing their tasks, God smiles and so do all the guests who join us. The joy and love felt in your gathering space was palpable. The food was delicious, the children’s activities were fun and the therapy dogs bring all kinds of healing. Hope to see you again in July….
With Gratitude,Mary & Sandy
