THE STORY ON ADULT BIBLE STUDY AT IMMANUEL
What is introduced and considered during the worship service is explored and examined in adult Bible studies; on Sunday morning and during the week. What makes The Story unique is that it tells God’s story in a chronological narrative. Where the Bible has two or more books that cover the same information (1 Kings and 1 Samuel or the four Gospels), the editors of The Story have combined them into a single account and placed them in the order in which they occurred. Learning The Story will be Immanuel's primary focus this year. Copies of the book are available for purchase in the church office to allow for at-home preparation. Questions? Contact the church office at 630 879 7163 or email@example.com.

THEOLOGY ON TAP IS CURRENTLY ON HIATUS
On the second Monday of each month members of Immanuel will gather at a local watering hole for a time of fellowship and relevant theological discussion. The topics will often deal with current events, considering how the issue impacted the Church in Luther’s day, what the good Doctor had to say about it, and then dovetailing into a conversation about how it is impacting the Church today. Bring your Bible, order a pint, and join the conversation.
Discovering Immanuel guides participants through considering membership in the Immanuel community to active and intentional participation. Discovering Immanuel covers the information necessary to become an active and engaged participant and is essential to understand for those interested in membership. The class will also meet with an active and mature member of Immanuel who can answer questions and help make connections. Finally, the class will have the opportunity to get to know key ministry leaders and learn about entry level ministry opportunities to consider. The class covers "What is the Bible and Why Should I Trust it?" " Who is God?" "What is Salvation and How does it Work?" "God’s Gifts: the Sacraments," and "Why Should I Belong to a Church?"
