What a PAWsitively awesome Homecoming weekend! We had a blast walking in the parade and sharing God’s love with the community through our float! We’re so thankful to everyone who helped out with the parade preparations as well as the Homecoming tailgate. We are incredibly blessed to have those who are willing to lend a hand in bringing so many people together in fellowship and in sharing the love of God 💙

We enjoyed our day in God’s creation at the Aikman Wildlife Center!🦓🐅🐊🐫


Even though the Fall semseter of 2020 brough about many challanges, homecoming wasn't missed! Instead of the usual parade, displays were created for people to drive past and see. Maybe not as exciting as a parade, but still just as fun to put together!

Help us continue to show students through our campus ministry at Eastern Illinois University how to roll with the punches but still Keep Christ on Campus. Many skills and life lessons can be learned through this simple activity.

All donations to our Keeping Christ on Campus endowment fund will be matched 100% through July 1, 2021. Prayerfully consider a donation of any size, as we are grateful for all gifts! Find the link here for more information. Thank you for your continued prayers for our students and campus ministry!

Have you heard of the #redletterchallenge? The students at Eastern Illinois University that are part of Immanuel Student Center participated in this bible study together in the spring of 2019. Such a great way to build relationships around Christ and His love for us and how we can share it with others! Can you help us to keep this happening for future generations?

We are working to reach our goal of $10,000 to Keep Christ on Campus through our endowment fund! We are almost half way there! All donations made before July 1, 2021 will be matched 100%!!! Don't wait and donate today!! Please find more information and how to donate here

Encouraging our students to support the community around them is very important in their faith journey. Even when it is as simple as cleaning out the church attic and cleaning the sand volleyball court (to play on later!). It says in Matthew 5:16, "In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." Serving those around us is living our life through the love that Christ has given us!

Help us to continue creating servants through our campus ministries! Any donation counts! Prayerfully consider a donation, that will be matched dollar for dollar, to help the CID continue to support this campus ministry at Immanuel Lutheran Student Center! Find the link here:!
