Help us at Heritage Fest

We would love your help at the Heritage Fest booth in West Dundee.  Every year our church offers water, coffee and a bunch of other great gifts to our friends and neighbors during Heritage Fest.  We need help staffing the booth as well as setting it up and taking it down.  Consider signing up and helping to draw more and more people closer to Christ.  Follow this link to an online volunteer registration.

As the event gets closer we will email you more information as to location of the booth, directions for making coffee and other ways you can share love and friendship through the Heritage Fest.  Every year there are people who learn about Immanuel Lutheran Church and School for the very first time from coming to Heritage Fest and stopping at our booth—thanks for loving Jesus so much that you want to share our church with others.  If you have any questions please contact Pastor Baerwolf at or calling him in the church office at 847-428-4477.  Thanks again for all your help.
