Please check back here regularly to see what we have going on currently.


September "Mission" Project

Heifer International is a global nonprofit group working to eradicate poverty and hunger. For the month of September we will be collecting money to support the purchase of chickens, pigs, and/or cows, to distribute, along with agricultural training to families in need around the world. 

Please make checks out to: "Immanuel Lutheran Church" and write "Heifer International" on the memo line. You may drop donations in the offering plate or drop off at the church office.

We appreciate your help with this "Mission Project!"


Response Supply Warehouse

American Lutheran Church in Rantoul now has an established area onsite to utilize as the NALC District Disaster Supply Warehouse. Their most recent assistance was delivery of supplies on hand to the Cedar Rapids, IA area which was severely impacted by a Derecho Storm. This assistance depleted their inventory. There are a number of areas where you can assist. One option to consider would be gift cards to the following stores:

  • Rural King
  • Walmart
  • Home Depot
  • Lowe's
  • Target
  • Personal check made out to "American Lutheran Church" earmarked "Disaster Response Fund." 

These would allow them to build up some financial resources to purchase needed items on demand, items which some people may find difficult to purchase and/or ship and be able to negotiate with vendors on bulk purchases.

Any material goods, checks and/or gift cards should be taken or mailed to:

American Lutheran Church Disaster Warehouse
