IUCC is gathering food once again for the Thanksgiving Food Bags this year. These bags will be delivered to some schools in our community and the principals will then distribute them to families so they can enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving meal!


Two ways you can help is to purchase the food or buy a $25.00 gift card that also goes along with the bag. These cards let the families buy their own perishable foods to go along with their meal. You can buy your own card or purchase it through Immanuel's SCRIP program.


We need the filled bags returned to IUCC by Wednesday, November 17,  so we can take them to the schools on Friday, November 19.


Here are the food items that will fill the bags:


Canned Corn

Canned Green Beans

Canned Yams

Cranberry Sauce

Stuffing Mix

Instant Potatoes


Muffin Mix

Cake Mix



Drink Mix (Lemonade or Fruit Punch)


You may also donate money and we will shop for you. Thank you for supporting this wonderful outreach in our community.


Please reach out to the church office at 630-837-0190 or

with any questions.



This year we are sponsoring the 15-18 year old teenagers in our community for our Christmas mission. The following is a helpful list of some items that this group would appreciate. And you can buy anything you’d like. Any size, any color, for any gender, etc. These gifts will be given out during the Hanover Township toy give away.



These gifts are due at church, unwrapped, by Sunday, December 12. They will be passed out on Friday, December 17.


Thank you all for making wonderful holidays for people in our community!
