Socks for the Homeless Update

Thank you to all who donated Socks for the Homeless. We were able to take 341 pairs of socks to Journeys The Road Home in Palatine. They were most grateful for the donation.


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.

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!
