UPDATE 3-31-20: Illinois Governor Pritzker has mandated schools be closed through Thursday, April 30. Our campus will remain closed until at least that date.
In a continued effort to take every precaution in helping our community stay healthy during the spread of the Coronavirus, Immanuel’s entire campus of buildings will be closed from all activities from today, March 16th to April 30th.
Only essential personnel, such as pastors, teachers, and staff, etc. will be allowed on campus today and tomorrow to collect all work items needed to work remotely. We are scheduling a deep clean with our cleaning service through this period of time to do our best to remove any existing germs and bacteria.
We will suspend in-house Sanctuary worship for all mid-week Lenten and normal weekend worship services for the next two weeks. However, we will be streaming worship services online for all mid-week Lenten and weekend worship services at their normally scheduled times. This will allow you to have some sense of normalcy with regard to our worship schedule. The only difference is that you can worship online in the comfort of your own home.
While it is clearly important for us to take every precaution in exercising due care during the Coronavirus outbreak, it is even more important that we continue to have the opportunity to worship our Lord and to be comforted by Him through the message of the Good News of Jesus Christ.
We are blessed to offer our worship via live web stream from our website http://www.immanuelpalatine.org/webcasting/, so that you can worship with us in ‘real time’ at home. We will also make online worship available through our Immanuel Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/immanuelpalatine.
Another blessing we have at Immanuel, is the ability to participate more fully in worship through our online giving web page at http://www.immanuelpalatine.org/push-pay/.
You may also give through our mobile app, called “God with Us” , by texting IMMANUELAPP to #77977. This will provide the link for you to download the app and begin online giving through your smart phone. Our mobile app is also available at the Apple and Google stores for download. We strongly encourage you to continue to give your offering regularly during this time of interruption and change. Immanuel’s ministries depend on your gifts, as ministry will continue even through this campus closure.
