As part of our mission of caring and sharing, Immanuel strives to reach out with love and service to our local and regional community. We host various events for our local community and support local and regional organizations with service and donations.
Frankfort Township Food Pantry: At least once a year, we collect donations from our members of non-perishable food items, paper products, and gift cards which we pass on to the food pantry.
Morningstar Mission: We participate in this organization's annual Stars of Hope program -- our members purchase and wrap Chirstmas gifts for a child which are then distributed by Morningstar Mission. In 2017, we also assisted MorningStar Mission with their Jump On The Bus initiative by collecting donations of supplies and helping pack the backpacks for children in need. In addition, we collected donations from the community for Jump On The Bus during our 2017 hosting of Mokena fireworks viewing.
St. Matthew Soup Kitchen: Once a month, a group of Immanuel members travels to St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Chicago where they assist in serving lunch at El Comedor Popular soup kitchen, located in the Pilsen neighborhood. This amazing organization feeds both the bodies and souls of those they assist.
