We have many things to offer at Immanuel. Find where you fit in...
At Immanuel Church, we want everyone to have a place where they feel right at home. Below are several of the activities we offer, if you don't see something that interests you, call the church office (708/258.6966) to find out our full list of activities and events. The best way to feel at home in a church is to find a smaller group within the church. Here is where you will get to know people on a more personal level and where you will get to be known. Our goal here at Immanuel is that everyone will be Known, Loved and Missed. Known by others and by God, loved by others and by God, and Missed when life gets in the way and you don't make it to an event or activity.

We value Christ's great commission to go into all the world and preach the Gospel. We support several mission groups, offer a bi-yearly mission trip to Back Bay Missions in Buloxi, Mississippi, sponsor several children in other countries, and each month our mission offering is extended to a different group bringing God's love to others. We have been involved in Heifer International, Helping Hands here in Peotone, Back Bay Missions in Buloxi, MS, Church World Service, Mission Starfish Haiti, Treehouse Youth in Minneapolis MN, Global Partners, and many others. (See our "MORE" page on this website for more information.)
Immanuel's Prayer Quilt Ministry is an opportunity to minister those who are going through a difficult time. Each quilt is lovingly pieced together for a specific recipient and that person is prayed for as the quliters work. The congregation then also has a chance to pray specifically for the recipient as well. We meet the 2nd Thursday of the month at 10:15 am in the church fellowship room.
