Jun 24/25 – Hitting the Snooze Button – Weekend Worship

As we conclude the series on the book, Not a Fan by Kyle Idleman, we look at the invitation that Christ has given to us to be a follower. The question is, are you going to come up with an excuse of why you can’t follower Jesus now or wait until tomorrow? There is no reason to wait on being a follower of Jesus. Saying “tomorrow” to Jesus is like hitting snooze on your alarm in the morning.

Jun 17/18 – The Relationship Defined – Father’s Day Weekend Lutheran Worship

People all over our country today will be celebrating Father’s Day as we give thanks for
our earthly dads, grandfathers, and other men who are special to us. Father’s have a
special relationship with their children. Our relationship with our Heavenly Father is no
different. It’s a special relationship. As we continue to look at the difference between a
fan and a follower, we want to define the relationship we are to have with our Heavenly
Father.

Jun 10/11 – The D.T.R. – Weekend Lutheran Worship

Today the Church celebrates Trinity Sunday. It is a day to bask in the wonder of knowing the triune God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—who has been revealed to us in the Scriptures. While we often think about the three persons of the Trinity having their own areas of expertise (the Father creates, the Son redeems, the Spirit sanctifies), the Readings for today focus on how the three persons of the Trinity work together in every task. They are in a relationship with one another. Their relationship is perfect, but how about your relationship with the Trinity? Have you ever taken time to think about your relationship with God? Let’s define the relationship we have with God. Listen-In or Watch below:

Jun 3/4 – What Does This Mean? – Memorial Day Weekend Lutheran Worship

“What does this mean?” This question might sound familiar to anyone
who has spent time studying Luther’s Small Catechism. As the catechism covers each
of the Six Chief Parts, the question is asked again and again: “What does this mean?”
And then explanation follows. This same question was asked by many in the crowd on
the Day of Pentecost, as recorded in Acts 2. As the people hear and see these
miraculous events, they are amazed and perplexed, asking one another, “What does
this mean?” In the verses that follow, Peter gives explanation from the Old Testament.
He proclaims that God has fulfilled His promise to “pour out His Spirit on all flesh.” The
gift of the Holy Spirit has been given for all nations. As you celebrate the Day of
Pentecost today, reflect on these events by asking yourself, “What does this mean—
for me?”

May 27/28 – There is a Redeemer – Memorial Day Weekend Lutheran Worship

We human beings have been created for oneness with God the Holy Trinity and with all of life. Our sinful turning away has corrupted our nature and led us into overwhelming fear and shame. Yet, God in His mercy has given His Son to live and die and rise for us having done everything necessary to bring us back to our Father’s loving embrace. Now, where death once reigned, eternal life has broken in, and this is what that means: People come into a relationship with the only true God through faith in Jesus Christ, whom He has sent. To enter this relationship of love is to enter into oneness—no more separation—and life eternal begins now!

May 20/21 – Confirmation 2017 / Too Superstitious – Lutheran Weekend Worship

10:45 – “Rite of Confirmation 2017”
Today is a special day in the lives of those who have prepared themselves for the Rite of Confirmation. Today they will profess their faith in Jesus Christ and begin their commitment of faith within the church and the world that will sustain them for the remainder of their lives. As important as this day is for them, this day should also be a day of reflection for us all.

5:00 / 8:00 / 9:15 – “Too Too Superstitious”
Three buddies were discussing death and one asked the group: What would you like people to say about you at your funeral? The first said, “He was a great humanitarian, who cared about his community.” The second wanted, “He was a great husband and father, who was an example for many to follow.” The last man said, “At my funeral I want people to say, Look, he’s moving!” What about you?

May 13/14 – The Depth of a Mother’s Love – Lutheran Weekend Worship

Today we celebrate our moms. They love their children in a way that is reflective of God’s love for us. Their love is unconditional, sacrificial, and protective. They love their children even when their children aren’t always easy to love, and when their children don’t appreciate their expressions of love. Their love grows for their children more and more each day. In fact, if you ask any mom, without fail or second thought, they would be willing to give up their life for their children. Sound familiar? Let’s see how that compares to God’s love, who provides One Way to salvation, by The One who gave His life for you.

May 6/7 – The Fellowship of Believers – Lutheran Weekend Worship

It is possible that we can go through the motions of “being a church” all the while losing sight of the objective. Why did God plant His church in the first place? You may be surprised but it is not for our own comfort and benefit. No! God planted the church so He could “add to their number day by day those who are being saved”. God put us here to rescue a lost and dying world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Is that what we are all about at Immanuel? Pastor Tom’s message today will talk about the purpose of our church we call Immanuel! Listen-In or Watch below:

Apr 29/30 –  – Lutheran Weekend Worship

The world has had remedies for sin and evil throughout the centuries, but they are all futile. Peter reminds us that gold and silver could not have saved us from our sins, but only the precious blood of Christ. The Jewish leaders in Jerusalem thought death by Roman crucifixion would silence our Lord’s condemnation of their futile ways. It would take nothing less than repentance and Baptism into His name to be saved. And who could blame even the disciples for figuring that Jesus’ death belied their hopes and dreams? In the breaking of the bread, the risen Christ set aside all their gloom and brought them to endless joy— joy that is ours today.

Apr 22/23 – What To Do After All The Eggs Are Gone? – Lutheran Weekend Worship

On Easter evening and again the following Sunday, because the disciples saw Jesus alive, they knew the resurrection was real, and they believed in Him. They were then able to witness to their faith in spite of opposition and persecution from the Jewish council. Though grieved by various traits, it was the “living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ” (1 Peter 1:3) that enabled the Early Church to rejoice. The reality of the resurrection becomes evident to people around us as we live out our faith, confessing Jesus as Lord and offering peace and forgiveness in His name. As they come to faith, they join us and “have life in His name” (John 20:31).

Mar 15 / Good Friday – When Water Thirsted  – Lutheran Worship

Overwhelmed by fears unknown, hanging helpless on the cross alone, suffering pain and deepest woe, we behold the Lamb of God. No greater love was shown the world than when Jesus died that mournful day. For God so loved the world he gave his Son, we form sin and death might be saved! Even as his precious life blood flows, deep compassion for the world he shows. Seeking pardon from his bitt’rest foes, we behold the Lamb of God. No greater love was shown the world than when Jesus died that mournful day. For God so loved the world he gave His Son that we form sin and death might be saved!

Apr 8/9 – A Convergence of the Committed, Curious, and Critical – Lutheran Weekend Worship

So it all comes down to this. “It all” is the history of our Lord’s incarnation, birth, preaching, teaching, healing, calling disciples, and now, —Jesus coming to His goal in Jerusalem. This is Sunday is so full of meaning that it cannot even be succinctly summarized. The meaning of it all unfolds before us as we spend an entire week, cheering the King at His triumphal entry, then gathering with Him in the suspenseful quiet of the Upper Room, then the garden, then His arrest, then the trials, and ultimately the cheers turn into jeers and He reaches His goal in Jerusalem. He dies. Only knowing who Jesus really is and the reason for His death, only in knowing the purpose of God’s Law can we discover the joy of the Gospel, the good news of the forgiveness of our sins, new birth and new life—eternal life! That spiritual knowledge gives us the stamina to endure this week and the rest of our lives.

Mar 25/26 – The Light Cures Blindness – Lutheran Weekend Worship

From the start of His public ministry to its conclusion, Jesus performed many miracles. In bringing sight to the blind, He gave them a new vision of the world and opened new possibilities for them. As the One who brings the light of salvation to His people, Jesus opens new possibilities for our lives. As our perfect substitute, He takes the weight of sin from us and lightens the burdens we bear. Both lightened and enlightened, we rejoice in the miracles we experience each day by His grace.

Mar 18/19 – Life Isn’t Fair – Lutheran Weekend Worship

She was tired. She was tired of knowing that if she walked into a room full of people laughing and chatting, it would go eerily and suddenly quiet the moment she walked through the door. She was tired of hearing people whisper as she walked by, and knowing exactly what they were talking about. Life was not going well. She wasn’t very lucky in love, lonely and living paycheck to paycheck. Do you know anyone like this? I do – hear more about her today! Listen-In or Watch below.

Mar 4/5 – Swordfight in the Desert – Lutheran Weekend Worship

Have you ever felt like you’re in a desert? Not an actual desert like the Arizona-Sonora Desert, but a desert in your life situation? A place where you feel heat from those who are unhappy with you, a place where you see nothing but emptiness and loneliness in your relationships. Have you been in a place that is empty of anything good, living, thriving, bursting with the colors of happiness? Perhaps you just feel dried up for lack of water from the God’s Word, fellowship with other believers, or anything seeming to have come from the heavens above? Have you been in that place? Are you in the desert? There is real hope! Jesus went to battle for you – and he won!

Feb 25/26 – The Way of Worship – Lutheran Weekend Worship

Reflecting on the experience of the transfiguration of Jesus, Peter wrote in his Epistle, “We were eyewitnesses of His majesty” (2 Peter 1:16). The three disciples on the mountaintop, Peter, James, and John, were also “ear witnesses” as they heard the voice of God the Father say, “This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to Him” (Matthew 17:5). As we listen to the proclamation of the Gospel, we become “ear witnesses” as well. The working of the Holy Spirit that shapes our witness as we share it with others leads us to be those who make manifest the fruit of the Spirit, including gentleness and self-control, in our lives.

Feb 18/19 – The Basic Building Blocks – Lutheran Weekend Worship

“We are God’s house of living stones, Built for His own habitation.” These words from stanza 3 of the well-known hymn “Built on the Rock the Church Shall Stand” are a reminder to us of who we are, and it gives us a sense of belonging. As we gather for worship, we are those stones being piled up together one more time. Whether the pile is small or huge, includes many pebbles or none at all, it is the use of the stones that is important. The stones are fashioned by the working of God for His own habitation. They—and we—can serve no greater purpose!

Feb 11/12 – Integrity or “Doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.” – Lutheran Weekend Worship

Today as we get back with Jesus on the Sermon on the Mount, we are going to see what Jesus has to say about integrity. In our Gospel lesson Jesus Says: Let your Yes be Yes, and your No, be No; anything beyond this comes from the evil one. C.S. Lewis, the famous British novelist, teacher and Christian apologist, called “integrity doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.” What value do you place on integrity?

Feb 4/5 – Being Christ to Others – Weekend Worship

People often look to a variety of resources to help them in their daily living. Nowadays, there are numerous avenues in which to find these resources, from books and blog posts to inspirational speakers on TV or online. Generally, everyone has a desire to be kind and good to others so as to pass along positive vibes or energy to others. Yet, we as Christians are called to live in this manner, but yet do it uniquely to the rest of the world. We must live according to the directives that Jesus lays before us, so that our daily living not only send positive signals, but actually be Christ to others so they give thanks to God. Let’s explore how we carry this out.

Jan 28/29 – iWorks or God Works – Weekend Worship

The word “boast” is one that can have a wide variety of meanings and applications. Initially we may portray the word in a negative way, as we teach the children that it is not polite to boast. Yet there is a form of “blessed boasting.” Hymn writer Johann Olearius, who lived in the seventeenth century, sums up that form of boasting simply as he writes: “The Lord, my God, be praised, In whose great name I boast” (LSB 794:4). Boasting in Christ can be more than polite. Boasting in Christ, lovingly and winsomely expressed, can be a confession of faith.

Jan 21/22 – Empowering For Adventure – Weekend Worship

The journey of a disciple of Jesus may take many directions. As one of the first men called to discipleship by the Lord, Peter found that his world was turned around and changed forever. And yet, in following the Lord, he found a peace that passed all understanding. In the final words of his second epistle, he wrote to his Christian flock, “Therefore, beloved . . . be . . . at peace” (2 Peter 3:14). The people of God are peaceable people through whom the Spirit works, fashioning them as peacemakers and peace-bringers to a world in need of the peace that is in Christ alone.

Jan 14/15 – Jesus: Substitute, Savior, & Son – Weekend Worship

Christianity today often attempts to portray Jesus as the best advice giver that provides a strong moral direction for our lives, in order that we might live in harmony with our neighbor. Some people also see Jesus as an excellent teacher that passes along excellent quotes that turn into Tweets, Memes, or Facebook statuses that help us through our anxieties and fears. Sometimes, we need a call back to our foundations to truly understand how Jesus reveals himself to us. John the Baptist does just that by proclaiming “Behold, The Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!”. John is revealing Jesus as Substitute, Savior, and Son.

Jan 1 – Power in the Name of Jesus – New Year’s Day Lutheran Worship Service

Life has a certain rhythm. Worship has a certain rhythm to it as well. Each service begins and ends in a specific way—with the name of God. We begin worship with the name of the Trinity in the Invocation. We later end worship with the Benediction, “The LORD bless you and keep you . . .” (Numbers 6:22–27). This rhythm of worship can serve as a model for each new day. In his Small Catechism, Luther wrote, “In the morning when you get up, make the sign of the holy cross and say: ‘In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.’ ” Luther also suggests that in the evening when you go to bed, make the sign of the cross again as God’s name is spoken.” This New Year’s Day, what better way is there to conclude the old year and begin the new one than in the name of our Lord?

Dec 31 – Don’t go to bed early tonight…Stay awake! – New Year’s Eve Lutheran Worship Service

As a child, New Year’s Eve was all about staying up until midnight to ring in the New Year. Parents tell their children to go to bed, but kids want to stay up. As adults, a big part of New Year’s Eve is also about staying up until midnight. Sadly, the struggle now is more about the ability to stay awake that late. Many of us, watch the celebration in New York, so we can at least go to bed by 11 p.m., others simply don’t care, and go to bed early. In our Gospel, Jesus commends those who stay ready and awake if the master comes in the second or third watch of the night. Is Jesus giving us permission to stay up late tonight? Probably not, but let’s see what he means about staying awake for Him. Listen-in or watch below, as Pastor Warren closes out 2016.

This song is usually kept back for the post-Christmas/Epiphany time, but it is a theme that characterized God’s advent from the start. God sent Jesus to be “for the glory of Israel” (mentioned in Simeon’s second line); but this glory was that he was the Light of God “to shine on the Gentile community,” a theme that Luke displays in his gospel and in the book of Acts as the very plan of God. Through Simeon’s song we are led to celebrate God’s love for the world and to let God’s Light shine through us.

Nov 30 – The ‘God Is My Redeemer’ Song –  Wed. Advent Lutheran Worship

Mary’s song, dearly known as “The Magnificat” as recorded only in Luke’s gospel, celebrates the redeeming nature of God, the nature that addresses people personally. In this song, Mary repeatedly speaks personally of how God has touched her in his redemptive and caring way. Her song goes beyond the personal connectedness to speak of the very nature of God the Redeemer. God addresses injustice and unexpectedly turns this world’s way of worshiping its celebrities upside down (or right side up).

After visiting her cousin, Elizabeth, who announces to her how blessed she is to believe that the fulfillment of the Messiah would come from her, now begins to rejoice with great humility in her circumstance. For Mary draws upon her servant heart and begins to realize the magnitude of what God is doing through her. Her soul is magnified and filled with joy toward the Lord for doing this marvelous work through a woman such as her. She is a true vessel for the Lord’s redemption.

“It has long been the custom of our people to turn in the fruitful autumn of the year in praise and thanksgiving to Almighty God for His many blessings and mercies to us.” These words written by President Woodrow Wilson for Thanksgiving one hundred years ago are just as timely now as they were then.

As the Lord Jesus sets a Thanksgiving banquet before you today in His Word, join with your Christian family to turn and give Him thanks and praise for the saving work He does in your life. “Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; for His steadfast love endures forever!” (Psalm 118:1).

As the Lord Jesus sets a Thanksgiving banquet before you in His Word, join with your family to turn and give Him thanks and praise for the saving work He does in your life. “Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; for His steadfast love endures forever!” (Psalm 118:1).

Nov 20 – Stronger Together  Worship Celebration
Stronger Because Movement Makes Us Immovable

Immanuel is committed to working “Stronger Together”. We are striving to work as a team building our community in Christ. That includes youth, elderly, members, non-members, new Christians and old Lutherans, all! For building a community in Christ requires everyone to use whatever God has given them. It requires changing old practices and habits. It is the old comfortable way of doing things that has led to the necessity to build up the community in Christ. Think about it! Listen-In or Watch below, as Pastor Karl Galik returns as our special guest.

Nov 12/13 –  – Weekend Worship 

You may have heard people say “We are living in the last days”. Usually this is some reference to worldly events that parallel to what is written in Scripture, which point to the second coming of Christ and the end of the world as we know it. Things like the Cubs winning the World Series, or the outcome of our Presidential election cause people to look heavenward for Christ. The ‘last days’ actually have been in effect since Christ’s crucifixion. Today, we are reminded how Christ is faithful through changing and uncertain times. Listen-In or Watch below.

Nov 5/6 – For All the Saints Who from Their Labors Rest – Weekend Worship

When we think of saints, we likely picture well-known disciples, martyrs, and leaders of the Church throughout the years. Familiar names from the pages of Scripture come to mind such as Peter, John, and Paul—the type of people we name churches after. Perhaps this is rightly so. After all, the Lord worked in the lives of these individuals in powerful ways. On All Saints’ Day, however, we also give thanks to God for “unsung saints.” We remember faithful Christian men and women whose names may not be known to the world but are known to us. We remember the names of mothers and fathers, friends and family, and fellow congregation members who bore witness to Christ through word and deed. We take time to rejoice that they are now in the nearer presence of the crucified and risen Savior they served while among us.

Oct 29/30 – God’s Grace Finds Us – Resurrection Sunday – Special Worship

The legendary account tells us that one cool October 31st in 1517, the priest Martin Luther defiantly nailed his protest notice to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany. These Ninety-five Theses were a list of abuses and errors that he understood were a corruption of the purpose and mission of the Church. In reality, the Ninety-five theses were most likely sent to his Archbishop. And the list was not really a defiant protest as much as it was a sincere call for the Church to begin addressing some of its problems that Luther felt had obscured the Gospel message. In any case, Luther hoped that his Theses would be seen and discussed as a step toward renewal of the Church, so that people might know the truth about God’s forgiveness for their lives. The powerful passage from Romans 3:19-28 had fired his soul and he was so overflowing with joy after years of guilt and a need for forgiveness that he had to share the truth with all that he could. Little did he know the enormous impact on the world that his one simple act would have. His willingness to stand up to the pope and emperor in the name of the Gospel of Christ changed the face of history, and the face and direction of the entire Christian Church. We’ve come together today not to celebrate division but rather to celebrate the movement of the Holy Spirit in our Church and our hearts. It is this movement of the Holy Spirit that bring us newness and renewal, both in our personal lives and in the ministry of the Church.

Our special guest for this extra special weekend is Pastor Keith Haney (Mission Facilitator/Calling Congregation for the Northern Illinois District) delivers this weekend’s sermon. Pastor Warren appears as Martin Lutheran to add to the drama of the day.

Oct 22/23 – A Matter of the Heart – Weekend Worship

What makes for an acceptable sacrifice to God? What is the right kind of offering? From the very beginning of time, God’s people, such as Abel, have offered to God the very best of all that they have and are. God looks for a heart of faith in His people and finds that heart of faith expressed in an offering of self as well as of goods. It is through Christ that all offerings find acceptance. As the writer of the Epistle to the Hebrews writes, “Through Him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge His name. Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God” (Hebrews 13:15–16).

Oct 15/16 – Lessons from a Widow – Weekend Worship

We “ought always to pray and not lose heart.” This is how Luke introduces the Gospel today (18:1). Then he records Jesus’ telling of the parable of the persistent widow and the unjust judge. God the Father is kind, gracious, and loving. While we may not always receive the answer we are looking for or according to the time frame we stipulate, our dear Father always delights to hear and answer the prayers of His people. For He is a good God, and He loves us with His whole creation.

Oct 8/9 – Where Is Your Strength From? – Weekend Worship

When given the chance to return to her own people, the widow Ruth pledged faithful love not just to her mother-in-law, Naomi, but to Naomi’s God. Paul urges his apprentice Timothy to respond with faithful love assuring him of the strength that is received through knowing Jesus. This strength produces the fruit of enduring hardships, running the race, and working in the Lord’s harvest. Yet even when we are weak and falter in our faithfulness, God is ever faithful to keep His promises. This faithful, loving God is the healer of all who suffer. Just as with His almighty Word, Jesus spoke healing to the ten lepers, so with His powerful Gospel promises, He continues to speak healing from sin and death for us today.

Sep 24/25 – What If Hell Is Real? – Weekend Worship

We do well to listen throughout our lives. Parents try their best to teach this to children at an early age. The ability to listen is a quality that affects relationships, vocations, and general communication. The same goes in our relationship, work, and communication with the Lord. We do well to listen to Him. The people in Amos’ time learned this as the Lord spoke through him in many “woes” and warnings. This is why Paul writes clear directions to the noble task of overseers, through whom people are to listen to the Lord. Even Jesus’ parable of the rich man and Lazarus reminds us that a day is coming when it will be too late. The Word of God teaches us that now is the time to listen, to repent and to believe.

Sep 17/18 – Generous God: Kingdom Gain Despite Worldly Practices – Weekend Worship

The parable in today’s Gospel has one main point: how generous the master is to his very core. He has a reputation for generosity. When his unjust steward discounts everyone’s bills, he doesn’t assert his legal right to reverse the steward’s actions; instead, he stays consistent with his reputation and generously forgives the debts. So it is with our Master, the Lord God. He is generous, providing each of us with “body and soul, eyes, ears, and all my members, my reason and all my senses . . . clothing and shoes, food and drink, house and home, spouse and children, land, animals, and all I have.” We rejoice in the generosity of God. In our joy, we hear God’s call to use whatever wealth He entrusts to us for extending His reign—providing for the poor and supporting Gospel mission and ministry.

Sep 10/11 – Lost and Found – Weekend Worship

A strange and wonderful irony emerges in all three of today’s Readings. The lost are found, whereas those who think they have found God, yet continue to mistreat others, are revealed to be the ones who are actually lost. There is a warning in this for us, who are tempted at times to think that we know God entirely, that we are the righteous and by our good behavior deserve God’s love. Like the fat and strong sheep in Ezekiel, like Saul the smugly self-righteous persecutor, and like the grumbling scribes and Pharisees in Luke, we are tempted to mistreat those we see as lost, strayed, and weak. We are reminded that God Himself comes into the world to seek and to find the lost, the strayed, the weak, and that God rejoices with great joy when a lost sheep is found. The Church is to be a place where sinners are welcome and where lives are transformed by the relentless love of Jesus, who is always seeking the lost?

Sep 3/4 – A Disciple, Me? – Weekend Worship

Jesus’ words on the cost of discipleship were a wake-up call to His would-be followers. Many had been almost sleepwalking, watching Him from a distance. Now was the time to wake up to the reality of what it would mean to be counted among His disciples. In fact, by comparison to their commitment to follow Him, they would have to hate everyone and everything else. It would mean fighting against most of society, a difficult cross to bear. Jesus was echoing Moses’ challenging words in the Old Testament Reading, to obey God’s commandments, spoken just before the people would enter the Promised Land. Jesus was about to lead into our promised land, heaven itself, by His cross. Because we the end of the story, how can we not respond to the gracious invitation to follow our Lord?

Aug 27/28 – Finding Hope for the Future – Weekend Worship

We like to think of ourselves as worthy of honor and respect. We would like to live as deserving of first-class treatment. But in today’s Gospel, Jesus encourages us to live humbly among people around us, and He echoes the directives in Proverbs. Not only does He instruct us to humbly find the lowest seat, but when we do the inviting, He also cautions against expecting social payback. By ourselves, we would chafe under such limits, but our faith in the grace of God, coming to us through the sacrifice of Christ’s blood on our behalf, moves us to rely on His undeserved favor. That frees us to hear those directives as descriptions of the sort of living by which we may return praise and honor to our Savior—life in first class, indeed!

Aug 20/21 – Unexpected Grace – Weekend Worship

Jesus is full of surprises. He says and does things differently than we might expect from God. Many will seek to enter the narrow door of the kingdom but will not be able. God’s discipline of His children is an expression of His deep love for us. Some who are last will become first, and some who are first will find themselves last. How strange. The way of Jesus is the way of the cross, of suffering, discipline, and of being last. Divine strength is made perfect in human weakness. Grace unexpected is delivered in Word and Sacrament and through Jesus’ own presence with us in our sufferings. Thank You, God, for grace unexpected and overflowing. Listen-In or Watch below!

Aug 13/14 – Finding Hope for the Future – Weekend Worship (5:00 – Enduring the Race)

Not everyone who claims to speak on behalf of God Almighty actually does so. There have been many false prophets over the centuries, and there are many still today who would fill people with “vain hopes” speaking “visions of their own mind” (Jeremiah 23:16). In contrast, God invites His people to trust what He says is His Holy Word. This is the faith exemplified in the lives of the saints, like Abraham, Joseph, and Moses who have trusted in what God says more than in what their eyes could see. This simple trust is especially important for us who follow Jesus; after all, sometimes His works mystify: a sword that brings peace; His Word that kills and makes alive; and division that results in union (Luke 12:51).

Faith should not be complicated. It is easy to understand faith but sometimes it is difficult to do. Even when our head is telling us we can trust something, actually doing our faith can be scary. Today we read, “faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen”. What does faith look like? Will we recognize it when we see it? Also today at our 9:15 service, we install and bless our 2016-17 school faculty!

July 30-31 – Feet on Earth – Head in Sky – Weekend Worship

I am told of a custom among some churches in Africa that when a person becomes a Christian they burn their old clothes and put on a new white robe to show their new life in Christ. In our New Testament reading today, Paul tells us that when we become Christians, we need to change our clothes. Our old way of living life is like filthy clothes that no longer fit and need to be taken off and burned. Then we put on new clothes that are nothing like we have ever worn before. In fact, we cloth ourselves with an entirely new lifestyle! Paul talks about “putting Christ on” like a totally new and beautiful outfit.

July 23-24 – Christ Alone – Weekend Worship

Through faith in Jesus Christ, you are welcomed into the Father’s presence. As you approach the throne of God with both praise and petition, His Spirit grants you the grace to acknowledge him with confidence. Earlier this week 25,000 high school youth and adult leaders did just that as they gathered in New Orleans for the 2016 National Youth Gathering (NYG). Immanuel sent 13 of its youth along with three adult leaders. NYG’s overall theme was “In Christ Alone “. Each evening as the 25,000 gathered the message focused on either Joy, Identity, Humility or the Community of Christ alone. Today’s worship will also focus on those themes and will show us the impact of that experience and what was learned amongst such a large community of believers. Jesus’ disciples learned firsthand the benefits of living “In Christ Alone”. Jesus taught them—and He continues to teach us—that coming together is a gracious opportunity for us to learn and acknowledge the need for “Christ Alone”. May the experience you have today be richly blessed as the Triune God reaches into your life to fill you with His presence and peace!

July 16-17 – Many Things vs. The One Thing – Weekend Worship

There are many things in this life that occupy our time and overwhelm our minds and hearts to the point that the many things become our focus. This happened with Martha as she lovingly desired to serve the Lord through hospitality. Yet she was distracted by the many things of her preparations away from the Lord. Meanwhile, her sister, Mary chose the one needful thing as her focus. Jesus is that needful thing, or the good portion, which is what we should choose in order to avoid being distracted by the many things. When we listen to Jesus and receive His good portion, it will never be taken from us. Listen-in or watch below:

In the fourth stanza of the “Star Spangled Banner”, Francis Scott Key includes the words “In God is our trust.” As America celebrates its Independence Day, we recall similar words of the Psalms. “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people whom He has chosen as His heritage!” (Psalm 33:12). “It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man” (Psalm 118:8). May our trust be in God for safety, salvation, and all things!

June 25-26 – Hate and Anger – Weekend Worship

It’s amazing how much hatred one can have of another person simply because of the differences that person may have. Obviously not everybody agrees on certain issues. We can disagree about favorite sports teams but that difference should never become violent as often occurs. Sometimes we disagree about which positions to support, but what is increasingly disturbing is the level of hatred that people have for those who disagree with them. The 2016 Presidential election may be the nastiest in history. I sense an unprecedented level of hatred that both sides have for each other and I’m not speaking about the candidates but rather those who support their candidates. Following the horrendous slaughter in Orlando, it is appropriate we talk about hated and its byproduct, anger.

Happy Father’s Day! We give thanks for the earthly fathers who have been a blessing in our lives. We give even greater thanks today for our heavenly Father, who has called us all His sons and daughters. In the Word, we are reminded of our beginning in Baptism, when He called us by name and adopted and welcomed us into His family, where we receive lasting blessings that cannot be found in any other place. As His children and heirs, we are favored, forgiven, and free, that we may live in His grace and respond in our lives to His glory and honor. Happy Father’s Day today! Happy “God the Father Day” today and every day living as His children united in His Son! Listen-in or Watch below.

Good news today is God is not insensitive when tragedy strikes. Good news is Jesus is not paralyzed when people are hurt, grieving and in shock. Good news is Jesus does not prescribe chemicals or drugs to deal with grief. As the Bible says “His heart overflowed with compassion.” Jesus’ heart broke for the weeping widow in today’s reading. He took the time to be with this sobbing widow whose hope for life, for happiness, for stability, is all stored up in her one son who is now gone. Today learn how Jesus helps us deal with grief.

Thousands of years from now, the towns we live in may not even exist, and even the more notable people among us will be forgotten. But we will be remembered by Jesus. He will bring each of us to that place where we shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore, where He will be in our midst and will guide us to springs of living water and wipe away every tear from our eyes. Those who have died in Christ and who gave their lives in service to our nation are remembered today and forever in the love of Jesus.

May 21-22 – Seeing More Clearly in Cambodia

The Sunday after Pentecost is always The Holy Trinity. As we consider the Trinity, we do not attempt to define or explain God but confess what He has revealed to us in Scripture. He is one God in three persons. His self-disclosure reveals Himself as the God who saves. His delight is in us even though the cost of loving us means offering up His Son on the altar of the cross. This is the heart of God’s self-revelation—the Father’s saving will and purpose is fulfilled by the Son even to death, and the Spirit reveals this to us so that we might know and believe in Him and be saved. God’s wisdom is not theoretical but practical—for us and our salvation. This is His delight, and from this we learn to delight in what He has done!

Thank God for mothers! The celebration of Mother’s Day is not part of the traditional Church Year calendar. Rather, it is an informal celebration that presents an opportunity to give thanks to God for His gift of mothers. In observing the day, we are connected with the biblical record of mothers and grandmothers and are reminded that motherhood is a special vocation. Although the customary celebration of Mother’s Day is focused on family relationships, we can extend our gratitude to God for His faithfulness to all the faithful women who have been blessings in every generation.

He is doing development work for ¡Enviando! – a campaign to expand God’s loving reach to our Hispanic neighbors in Northern Illinois. Through ¡Enviando!, the NID hopes to ignite, expand and more firmly secure God’s loving reach to Latinos in Northern Illinois through the sending of missionaries and the launch of new mission. Pastor Perryman’s message focuses on the fact that the church is more than a community of believers; it is Christ’s body in the world to carry out God’s ultimate purpose – to reconcile the world to himself.

Apr 23-24 – Weekend Worship – The Gift of Music

Since the time of David, the primary means of congregational participation in worship has been music. When God centralized worship in Jerusalem, music became a prominent feature. Through David, God organized an impressive music ministry. This first music ministry had 288 directors and 3,712 singers (1 Chronicles 23:3,5)! Much of what these 4000 Levites sang were psalms. A “psalm” was a sacred poem in praise of God intended to be sung to the accompaniment of stringed instruments. In fact, in the ancient world, all poetry was sung. Music was central. While we celebrate God’s gift of Music at Immanuel this weekend we welcome and formally install our new Director of Music, Brenda Glawe. Listen-In or Watch below!

“Now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face” (1 Corinthians 13:12). Our vision of God’s reign is clouded by tribulation and lack, alienation and weeping. Yet, John saw—in living color and high definition—the day when all the people of God from every nation, tribe, people, and language will be gathered around the throne of God in the presence of Jesus. On that day our cry will be, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” (Revelation 7:10). Until then, “we walk by faith, not by sight” under the care of Jesus, our Good Shepherd (2 Corinthians 5:7).

Apr 9-10 – Weekend Worship – What’s Your Story?

The story of Peter is interesting. It was Peter who first confessed Jesus as Lord—and Peter to whom Jesus said, “Get behind Me, Satan.” It was Peter who insisted he was not like the others and would never abandon Jesus—and Peter who denied the Lord three times. But Peter’s story is also the story of the mercy of God to forgive Peter, to restore him from his falls, and to set him apart for service. Every Christian is like Peter—an enemy of God through sin to whom the Lord has shown His friendship in the Gospel and transformed into His friend! Listen-In or Watch below, as Pastor Donald tells us all about it.

Apr 2-3 – Weekend Worship – Believing is Seeing

Easter is not merely a day but a season, and every year we begin the rest of the story with John’s description of Thomas and his encounter with the risen Lord. Perhaps this is descriptive of our attitude as a church and as individual believers. We daily wrestle with our doubts and fears, with what it means to believe and what it means to confess ourfaith openly in the world. Could it be that we are so conditioned by the reality that is death that we struggle to hold on to the new reality of life that is ours in Christ? Thomas found out that seeing is not believing, but believing is seeing. We daily struggle with this very same truth. Listen-In or Watch below.

Mar 19-20 – THE RESURRECTION OF OUR LORD: EASTER DAY 2016

Without Easter, there is no hope. Without Easter, there is no real life. Simply put, without Easter, there’s no Christianity. The Resurrection of Our Lord is the day on which the Church throughout the world celebrates the new reality we are given because Christ Jesus is indeed risen from the dead, never to die again! For many people, Easter Day is no different from any other day, except perhaps for a few special traditions involving a bunny, a ham, and an egg hunt for the kids. We know better, don’t we? And we have a blessed opportunity today, don’t we? As we gather for worship this morning, we confess our risen Lord and His saving Gospel before the world! May the world know what we know! Without

Mar 26 – Easter Vigil Worship Service

This evening we recall that God can be seen at work throughout history— in creation, at the flood, in the exodus, in the valley of dry bones, with the three men in the fiery furnace. As we hear these foundational stories, many of us recognize how God has been at work in our lives too. We can also see God at work in Baptism, promising to us a life of dying each day to sin and being raised with Christ each day to live anew. The light of the Paschal Candle reminds us of Jesus’ presence. The vigil is a wonderful way to be reawakened to the wonder and the joy of the resurrection of Jesus for the transformation of our lives.

Mar 19-20 – Weekend Worship – Palms

Bittersweet. If something is literally bittersweet, it tastes both bitter and sweet at the same time—like a piece of dark chocolate. Different events can be bittersweet too— circumstances that are both painful and pleasant at the same time. Palm Sunday is bittersweet. As we picture Jesus riding into Jerusalem that first Palm Sunday, we don’t know whether to cry or laugh. Does Jesus enter the city in lowliness or pomp? Is He coming to bow His head to die or to reign in power? The answer is bittersweet: yes. Jesus comes in both of these ways and for both of these reasons. As we enter Holy Week, however, we remember that the bitterness of Palm Sunday’s humility, the bitterness of Maundy Thursday’s betrayal, and the bitterness of Good Friday’s death will undoubtedly give way to the sweetness of Easter Sunday’s resurrection and life!

Mar 12-13 – Weekend Worship – Rejected!

In Isaiah’s day, the dreams of the nation of Israel had been shattered; they were in exile. But it was an opportunity to rely anew on God and His gracious plans for them when they would return. Saul had seen his Pharisaic dreams shattered when Jesus proclaimed Himself as the replacement for the sacrifice-filled temple. But newly made Paul was forever changed by the gift of Christ’s righteousness, given even to him. The Jewish leaders held on to the nation and temple as if they were the owners, not mere tenants, as in Jesus’ parable. When the kingdom was given to others, God’s plans for all people were fulfilled. Our self-centered dreams must also be shattered so that God may transform and fulfill them as only His plans for us can. How then shall we live out this new life?

Mar 5-6 – Weekend Worship – Reconciliation, Restoration & Rejoicing

We live in a world of broken relationships. Without reconciliation, life is draining, not unlike plants without water or a dead battery. But Isaiah looked forward to a day in which God’s people would not only return from exile in the short term, but “will draw water from the wells of salvation,” as we do. David was drained, his strength “dried up as by the heat of summer,” but he rejoiced that God forgave and reconciled him. The father in Jesus’ parable single-handedly reconciled his prodigal son to himself and offered that to his elder son, as our heavenly Father does to us each day. Drained? In the grace of God, that life “has passed away; behold, the new has come,” Paul writes. In Christ that reconciled life is full—of joy and rejoicing!

Feb 27-28 – Weekend Worship – Love Forsaken

In our fallen human condition, the experiences of our lives appear to tell us about God’s approval or judgment. We sometimes think that people with terrible problems are being punished. When life is easy, we slip into complacency, believing that God will overlook our minor sins. But God in His grace and mercy is always ready to forgive, if we will but repent. He proclaimed His invitation to repent through Ezekiel: “Why will you die, O house of Israel?” Through Paul, He promised help during temptation, “that you may be able to endure it.” And in Jesus’ parable, we see God withholding immediate judgment, as a tree is given another year to produce fruit. We do not know how long our “year” is; now is the time to reply to the invitation—and repent! Listen-in or Watch below:

Feb 20-21 – Weekend Worship – Love Forsaken

God’s Old Testament people would not listen to His Word, but sought other gods. When Jeremiah pronounced judgment, they were ready to put him to death. When God’s Son came, it was only appropriate that the very people He sought to save should execute him just outside Jerusalem. We need to examine whether we are open to God’s guidance, avoiding “earthly things,” as Paul warns. We dare not be as a reluctant brood—chicks scattering while our Lord would gather us under His protecting wings.

Feb 13-14 – Weekend Worship – One Little Word

Today’s psalm exudes confidence in God, our refuge in time of trouble. Jesus knew this as He was tempted in the wilderness, though it was Satan who tried to use Scripture to tempt our Lord. When the Israelites would enter the Promised Land, the wilderness would be behind them, a trek through which God had kept them secure in His protection. Their first harvest would be tangible proof. Although we waver in our reliance on God, our Godgiven faith in Christ assures us victory with Him. Listen-in or Watch below:

With the Transfiguration of Our Lord, the Epiphany season reaches its climax and comes to a close. Here on the mountaintop, Jesus’ identity as the divine Son is wondrously revealed. This is the fitting lead-in to the Lenten season, where Jesus shows us another glory in His suffering and death on the cross. Moses and Elijah are there to point to Jesus, but the focus is uniquely on Christ. The Father calls us to listen to His Son, through whom we are made co-heirs with the King in His glory.

Jan 30-31 – Installation of Pastor Don Antor / “What is this Word”

Pastor Don Antor Instalaltion (at the 9:15 Blended Service):
This is a great, historic moment in the life of this congregation. Pastor Donald Antor will be installed as Director of Youth Ministries. This service is rich in tradition, filled with songs of joy, lots of scripture and of course, prayer. It is a marvelous day as we celebrate all God is doing among us.

“What is this Word?” (at all the other services):
The purpose of the ministry of Jesus, unfolding during the Epiphany season, is forcefully expressed in these words: “I must preach the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns as well; for I was sent for this purpose” (Luke 4:43). Jesus preached the good news of the kingdom of God not only in His adopted hometown of Capernaum, where He was well known and comfortable, but also beyond familiar locations to Samaria and even as far the land of Tyre and Sidon. We are called to be those people who go beyond our comfort zones to share the Gospel news that we know and believe by the power of the Holy Spirit.

The word Epiphany means “a showing forth.” In this season of the Church Year, we reflect on the ways in which Jesus revealed, or showed forth, to His earthly family, His disciples, and to the world that He was God in the flesh. In John’s Gospel, we have an account of Jesus at a wedding at Cana in Galilee. Here He performed the first of His signs revealing His glory in the presence of His family and neighbors. John concludes the account, saying, “And His disciples believed in Him.” So can we! Listen-In or Watch below!

The First Sunday after Epiphany takes us down to the Jordan River, flowing from the North, where our Lord Jesus is baptized by His cousin John. We may have not been baptized in the Jordan River, but we share with our Lord the experience of being baptized. For the sinless Son of God, the Baptism was done in fulfillment of the will of His Father. For us, Baptism is a lavish washing away of sin. We are blessed through this Sacrament, which links us personally and intimately with our Lord. Listen-in or watch below.

Are you feeling that it might be better to avoid Christmas this year? Has illness or even death visited your home this year? Do the memories of friends and family who passed years ago seem to become more prevalent at this time? If you are in need of comfort and support, or if you wish that this holiday season could be different, then we hope and pray that you will find some of God’s peace and comfort in this worship service.

Immanuel is a place where we can allow feelings of pain, loneliness, worry, sadness, and experiences of dark memories, anxiety, and fear to be lifted up in faith to our Lord. Jesus will hear you even as he helps us bear the burdens and relieve our pain. Join us as together we find peace and comfort in this service, knowing that we are not alone.

to Elizabeth and Mary, we will not physically see our Savior in this lifetime, but we do share with them the blessings of His coming. We also share a new life with the people of God through the gift of faith that comes by the Holy Spirit.

Nov 28-29  Weekend Worship Service – Erupting Joy

Humility and thankfulness: they often go hand in hand. Our Creator humbles His people through times of lack and in seasons of hardship. Then, from their crushed spirits, His chosen ones cry out to Him for mercy and restoration. He always comes through! When God’s people look up to Him as their source and provider of every blessing, how can they not burst forth in songs of thankfulness and praise? That’s what we do today as we begin our Advent journey. We humble ourselves in the sight of our Redeemer. Then, with thankful hearts, we look forward to His new life and never-failing salvation.

Click Here to visit the Childcare Worldwide website and learn more about the choir or to make a donation.

Watch the Ugandan Kids Choir performance at Immanuel Lutheran Church and School. Ten talented children from Uganda brought a message of hope as the children shared the power of God’s love through their music and dance. These children delighted the audience with their high energy performance and infectious joy.

Each child in the choir comes from a desperately poor background, but they have hope for the future because someone decided to sponsor them. Now these children are touring America for a year on a mission to help other children of like circumstances. They want other children in Uganda to have food, water, the opportunity to go to school, and to find joy in the Lord.

Childcare Worldwide started a small child sponsorship program in Uganda in 1986 in a remote area near Lake Victoria to support children who were AIDS orphans. It now includes 3 villages and over a thousand children. One of the primary ministries in Uganda is Survival Pack Program which exists for hungry families in need of basic food for survival. Another program is a medical ministry and clinic serving one of the children’s homes and a nearby fishing village.

Members of the Uganda Kids Choir are selected to travel to the United States to perform traditional songs and dances and act as ambassadors for children who are in need of sponsorship.

Aug 22-23  Weekend Worship Service “Dirty Hands, Clean Hearts

A little child learns to wash his hands before mealtime. Having clean hands is important. But a child of God learns something else too. It’s even more important to have a clean heart. While dirty hands can make us sick, dirty hearts of sin can kill us spiritually! We can wash our hands with soap and water, but only God can make our hearts clean. Jesus took our dirty sins to the cross and washed our hearts clean with His forgiveness. We gather to confess our sins. God speaks His word of forgiveness. Our hearts are clean. With clean, forgiven hearts we worship the Lord with thankfulness and joy.

Aug 15-16  Weekend Worship Service “In Pursuit of Community”

What is the key element to Immanuel’s future? What is the most important thing we need in order to grow our church and school?

Better facilities?
Better/more staff?
More exciting/attractive programs?
More gifted/skilled people?
More financial resources?

None of those is it. Something else is absolutely key, essential, and fundamental to you and I being who God wants us to be and doing what God wants us to do. Without this key, we face mission impossible. With this key, we face mission possible.

This weekend Pastor Tom will reveal the key. We will discover both what creates and what kills this essential aspect of our future.

Aug 8-9  Weekend Worship Service “It’s Not About You, It’s About Me (Part 2)”

God’s grace sets us free from grumbling. Through the power of the Gospel and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we are able to grumble less and give thanks more. We are able to use our words to build up instead of tear down. Our complaints turn to praise. Listen-In or Watch below, as Pastor Tom completes this two-part sermon series.

Aug 1-2  Weekend Worship Service “It’s Not About You, It’s About Me”

It’s not about you. I know that is sometimes hard to hear, but it’s true. God’s gifts for you don’t come because you’ve done some good thing, or you’ve been good lately, or just because you’ve done something better than the person sitting next to you. No, God’s gifts to you, his forgiveness, his unwavering love, his mercy, his eternal life are all found in one place, in one person, in one Lord, Jesus Christ, Crucified, Buried, and Risen for you.  This weekend I’ll begin the first of a two-part series from John 6. To paraphrase Jesus, “It’s not about you, it’s about me! But they grumbled anyway.”

July 25-26  Weekend Worship Service “What More?”

How often has Jesus shown you personally through seemingly miraculous events that He is in fact Lord of your life?

Perhaps you can remember your intense gratitude to Jesus when he provided for you when you were out of options. Maybe you can remember how you proclaimed on that day of rescue how you would never doubt or forget his saving hand in your life. But as time goes by and the next overwhelming situation arises, our memory fades and fear takes over our heart. The same thing happened to the disciples. No sooner had they seen Jesus perform a miracle by feeding 5000 men, but that very night, they were rescued again in a boat that was being tossed about by wind and waves. Then when Jesus walks on the water and entered the boat, calming the tempest, they are utterly astounded at what Jesus did. Can you imagine Jesus saying “Really? What more? What more do I need to do to show you that I am God and Lord of all?” Is he saying that to you? Let’s talk about it in worship this weekend.

July 18-19  Weekend Worship Service “Immeasurably More”

When faced with the task of feeding thousands of people in a desolate place, the disciples look to send them away because it was near the end of the day. The people would need time to get down into the local towns to find food. Jesus challenges them to provide the food. With only so much money in the treasury bag, their resources are limited and they wouldn’t be able to buy enough food for everybody. Going to town to buy food would take time. Time is of the essence. They must act now. Immediately on hand are only five loaves of bread and two fish. Is Jesus demanding too much? The task is too great……or is it? When Jesus takes matters into his own hands, he can bring “Immeasurably More” to the situation. Can Jesus bring you ‘Immeasurably More”?

July 11-12  Weekend Worship Service “The Power of the Plum Line”

It is a common tool sometimes called a plumb-bob, plummet, or plum-line. The ancient Egyptians used it to make certain that walls were vertical. Surveyors use them to set their instrument exactly over a fixed survey marker so they can place markers in the proper location. Simply a line or cord with a weight at one end, held vertically, it helps a carpenter or mason build straight walls.

Did you know that God uses a plumb-line? This weekend we will talk about God standing beside a wall with a plumb-line. Why? Can’t God determine if a wall is straight or not? And frankly, what does a plum-line have to do with our lives?

Listen-In or Watch this weekend as I’ll show you not only how a plum-line works but also about the power in a plum-line. Not terribly excited? Well how about if I tell you, “Satan wants to mess you up, but I’ll show you real hope and integrity.”

July 4-5  Weekend Worship Service “Faith During the Delay” – Independence Day 

We live in a wonderful land filled with many freedoms for us to enjoy on a daily basis. Freedom is meant to open up our lives to help us experience all that this life offers, so that we can enjoy the pursuit of happiness and become produc!ve in all our endeavors to make our world a better place. That is the positive side to freedom. However, there also can be a negative side to freedom. Peter tells us “Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God.” How are you living out your freedom?
