Immanuel Lutheran Chapel, Springfield

Immanuel Lutheran Chapel held its first service in May, 2021, as things were starting to open up after the COVID pandemic. Weekly services are conducted at 2:00 on Sunday afternoons in the “red building” adjacent to the office of the Central Illinois District of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, in northwest Springfield, near the corner of North Grand and Bruns Lane.

Immanuel Lutheran Chapel is, at present, a ministry of Immanuel Lutheran Church in northeast Springfield, the Rev. James Stuenkel, pastor. With the help of other Lutherans in Springfield, Immanuel is attempting to serve northwest Springfield with the life-giving Gospel of Jesus Christ. We dare to look forward to the day when a new congregation develops as people gather around God’s Word.

Immanuel Lutheran Chapel is a ministry of Immanuel Lutheran Church, a member congregation of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. For this national church body’s website, click here.

What can Immanuel Lutheran Chapel do for you?

Here are just a few things. It can:

  • Help you express gratitude. Our society’s shared experience under COVID has shown us the value of so many things . . . and of life itself. Doesn’t it make sense to thank God? Why would we not? Church affords you time and place and helps to do just that.
  • Offer important growth opportunities for kids. Our children and grandchildren have so much to learn. They need good moral guidance, and not always from their parents or friends. The church has been offering this for centuries.
  • Get you ready to die. This is the most important point by far. For, as the Bible says: “The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23). Our calendars list Good Friday and Easter Sunday every year. Yet the church is always celebrating Easter, and it will do so eternally with the risen Christ.
