Healthy-Families-in-Christ.jpgGod has given Immanuel Lutheran a unique mission field here in Charleston Illinois. As a CHURCH, Immanuel serves a community of believers who live in and around Charleston. As an EARLY CHILDHOOD CENTER, Immanuel serves young children and the families who bring them to this school. As a CAMPUS MINISTRY, Immanuel serves the students, faculty and staff of Eastern Illinois University and Lakeland College.

These three significant ministries make up Immanuel Lutheran: a Scripture-based, Gospel-motivated, Mission-minded, Compassion-driven Church, touching hearts and changing lives with Jesus.
