Thank you to every member of my Immanuel Lutheran family!! It was a hard decision to finally step down as your organist and choir director after 12 wonderful years of service to the church and our Lord, and Savior. I will miss you all and I know, Lord willing, our paths will cross again. And so from the Mueller family to all of you, keep the faith and keep singing praise to the Lord! I love you, Eric
Just sharing this: Lutheran Renaissance music by Charleston Consort. One of our German Club members at EIU brought this to my attention. Here's the link to their site and the program--with some Luther classics. Nov 11 (Sunday) at 3 pm (Wesley United Methodist Church).

We are a community of believers on a mission of "touching hearts and changing lives with Jesus".

Operating as usual


Happy 4th of July! As we celebrate the freedom in this country; we must also be reminded of the freedom we have in Christ!

The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod

Heavenly Father, You are our great provider and protector. Be with families throughout our world who are facing difficulties and separation. Comfort and bless children separated from their parents. Guide all parents in their calling to care for their children in obedience to You. Give the governing authorities the wisdom to make and enforce just laws that foster security and the common good, and to look with compassion and mercy on those who seek protection and provision. Strengthen those who work with immigrants and refugees with the endurance needed to fulfill their calling with compassion and wisdom. Grant insight, understanding and patience to the citizens of our nation as we wrestle with the many difficult and divisive issues that confront us daily. Draw all to the cross of Jesus, that the love of Your Son might reign over all things; through Christ Jesus, our Lord. Amen.


VBS Day 1 Closing!! 83 kids learning that Jesus Rescues today!


We are so close to completing our Comfort Dog Ministry Team!! Is God calling you to be a secondary caregiver? Caregivers provide a home for the dog, practice commands with the dog, and attend the 3 day training with the rest of the team. They are not required to go on ministry team visits. It is preferred that the home not have other pets, but if well trained, that may be allowed. This position is preferred for congregation members.

If interested or want to learn more, contact Joelyn Akers at 259-7235 or [email protected]. Please share!


Today we honor the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country
