Service ProjectsOur Students Give Back
An education at Immanuel extends beyond the physical walls of the school building. It is important for students to learn to serve their community in Palatine, across the country, and around the world.
Annual Service Activities
- Supporting our missionaries in Cambodia by raising funds to help spread the Gospel.
- Packaging food for Feed My Starving Children. Each fall, Immanuel students in Grades 3-8, teachers, and parent volunteers pack food for children and their families in third world countries. At the most recent packing event, over 72,000 meals were packed. The students also had an opportunity to reflect on their experience in a lively discussion when they returned to school.

“An education at Immanuel extends
beyond the physical walls of the school building.”
Students at all levels participate in the above projects.
As our Eighth Grade class learns about sharing the Gospel, they participate in a mission trip. Students, teachers, and parent volunteers go to Kentucky or West Virginia for a week to work with World Servants helping people less fortunate than themselves. For many students, this mission provides new insight into a lifestyle unlike any they’ve known before. They also learn how to work together to achieve things they didn’t know they could.
It can be a life-changing experience that they carry with them for the rest of their lives.
