We are Now Collecting Socks for the Homeless

The homeless population is more prone to foot problems such as blisters and foot infections due to poor fitting shoes and feet getting wet in rain and snow. Bring in NEW SOCKS to the Church and put them in the plastic bin marked SOCKS FOR THE HOMELESS. Men’s, women’s, and youth socks are accepted. These will be given to JOURNEYS The Road Home and to Good Sam clients.

Hurricane Laura Relief Effort

UPDATE: Collection date has been extended through September 30!

Dear Friends,

Hurricane Laura made landfall and left a wake of devastation, particularly to our neighbors in Louisiana. While it may seem like the bad news of 2020 is unrelenting, it is in times like these when we must come together as friends and neighbors- in the true American spirit, to lend aid in any way that we can. URLACHERehab, with help from our friends at Immanuel Lutheran Church and School-Palatine and Lind Dental Care, is proud to answer the call with a donation drive.

In partnership with our friends at Custom Trucking Chicago, supplies will be collected and delivered to the hardest hit areas of Louisiana. If you are able to give- please drop off donations (preferably from the list of essential items) to our drop off location by September 30.

We thank you in advance for your kind donations, and we look forward to continuing our goals to give back to communities in need. After all- we are one world, one community, one family.

Essential Donation Items:

Bottled Water
Canned Food
Laundry Soap
Clothes (Any size)

Drop off donations in the Boy Scout trailers parked in Immanuel’s main parking lot near door # 2. Thank you for any donations you bring. You are acting as the Lord’s hands and feet to serve His children.

Got Socks? Socks for the Homeless

Beginning in October, Good Samaritan will be collecting socks for the homeless. Homeless people are more prone to foot problems, such as blisters and infections due to poor-fitting shoes and wet feet.

Shop now for NEW socks. Then starting October 1, bring them in and place them in the plastic bin marked “SOCKS FOR THE HOMELESS.” Men’s, women’s and youths’ socks are all accepted.

Pastor Warren’s Welcome to Principal Mullaney, Ms. Heimsoth, and Ms. Wozniak

From the desk of Pastor Warren

What a blessing it was to install and commission Dr. Joy Mullaney, Kristy Heimsoth, and Anna Wozniak into ministry for our school last Sunday. God’s Spirit covered us with His presence and showed us how He is blessing Immanuel with the right workers coming onboard to serve with our already wonderfully gifted staff. God is positioning Immanuel right where it needs to be with the perfect alignment of teachers and staff to carry out His Calling upon us to reach children and their families for Christ through our school and into our community. Thank you for extending your hand of fellowship and support as you met our new team members at the outdoor reception following worship. I know it was a tremendous boost for Joy, Kristy, and Anna to meet you. Please continue to support them in their new roles, along with all of our teachers, with your ongoing prayers. Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

New Issues are available!
(July, August, September)


UPDATE 4-24-20: Because Illinois Governor Pritzker is extending the Stay at Home Order, our campus will be closed through May 31.

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.

Be well and stay healthy



Immanuel will provide worship services as normally scheduled this weekend. We will continue to exercise due care and precautionary measures previously instituted for all participants, given concerns surrounding the Corona Virus.

We recommend that anyone who is at greater risk, who is 55 years or older, and/or have existing health concerns to stay home and take care of yourself. If you have any health concerns about attending worship, please stay home. It is important that you protect your own health and the health of our family, and make wise choices regarding possible exposure to any virus.

As a precaution, Fellowship coffee and juice will still be provided, but we will not be serving food.
