Don’t forget to invite a friend to dinner and a movie tomorrow (10/12) at The Meeting Place. Fall themed food and fellowship starts at 5:00 PM. Then American Gospel will show afterwards.

This Sunday (10/13) the Marathon will make it harder to get to corporate worship, but not impossible. Where there’s a will, there’s a way! Plan ahead. And walk if you can.

Spots are filling up fast for Dinners for 8! Sign up here if you haven’t already.

This Sunday (1/6) we start our new meeting times:

Sunday School (for kids 2nd grade and up) and Prayer Meeting now starts at 9:00 AM

Corporate Worship now starts at 10:00 AM

This Sunday, August 12, we will not be having our regular service at 1443 W. Roosevelt Road. Instead the whole church will be up in Wisconsin at our Annual Immanuel Summer Retreat!

Be advised: this upcoming Sunday the Chicago Marathon will be winding through our city, including a large part of the UIC Area (Taylor to Ashland to 18th Street west of Halsted).

In years past we used to have our service in the afternoon or evening, but the last couple years we have met at our normal time of 10:45 AM and it has worked just fine. Just plan ahead and leave early.

Walking or biking is best. If you have to drive you can get off on Roosevelt Road from the 90/94 exit.

Here is the website with more information.

This next Sunday (11/27) we will be having a Joint Service with our Spanish-speaking sister church – Cristo el Redentor.


Please note:


(1) The time is 10:00 AM.

(1) The address is 2005 S. Blue Island (Citlalin Gallery & Theater).  See the map below (the lines in black indicate areas where you will find good parking on SUNDAYs in the AM)…



Spring Awakening Outreach FlyerThis weekend over 90,000 people will be coming to our back yard for a huge rave called the Spring Awakening Festival!

On Saturday we’re going to open up our doors for an outreach event, seeking to share the gospel with attenders.

It’s supposed to be in the 90s. Water is expensive at the event, but we will be offering free water bottles and air conditioning. John Rood will be there jamming and doing demonstrations of how he makes electronic music.

We need people to come out to pray, be available to talk with guests, and generally help keep an eye on things.

We’ll start gathering at 6:00 PM to do a prayer-walk, asking God to bring an ‘Awakening’ to many of the emptiness and hopelessness of life apart from Christ.

Doors will open at 6:45 PM and close at 10:00 PM.

May many find ‘living water’ this weekend!

If you plan to come, reply with an email.

Don’t forget that service will feel like it’s starting one hour earlier this Sunday.

Also, did you know it’s Daylight Saving Time, not Daylight Savings Time (just like it’s Revelation, not Revelations)? Well, now you do!

Don’t forget that our Joint Service will begin at 10:00 AM today.

Lunch is provided afterwards.

This Sunday we will be welcoming Cristo el Redentor (formerly Amistad Cristiana) and Pilsen Community Church to worship with us in a special Thanksgiving Service.

Since it’s a Table Talk Sunday there will be food for everyone after the service, so plan to stick around and eat.

Also, we will be meeting at 10:00 AM instead of 10:45 this Sunday, so please don’t be late!

This Sunday 45,000 people will be running the Chicago Marathon.

We will be gathering to fix our eyes on Jesus as we run with perseverance the race marked out for us (cf. Heb. 12:1-2).

Not only will getting there be harder (plan your route ahead of time), but this Sunday will be different in that we won’t be having our normal service at 1443 W. Roosevelt. This Lord’s Day we will be joining Greater Mt. Sinai Missionary Baptist Church (just a few feet southeast of The Meeting Place) for their 11:00 AM service.
