The CLC In The Chicago Area

Immanuel Lutheran Church, which serves the greater Chicago area, has begun conducting off-site exploratory worship services on a regular weekly basis. These services are in place of the regular services at the Addison location. The congregation is excited about this new venture by which the Lord appears to be opening new doors for its witness to the Gospel.

The new site is at the “Overseas Club,” a dining hall in Batavia, which is about 20 miles west of the previous location. The worship service begins at 9:30 a.m. with Bible Class at 10:45. Pastor David Schmidt and his family continue to live in the parsonage at Addison. For more information the pastor may be reached by calling (708) 629-2688.
