Stations of the Cross

The Stations of the Cross are a powerful way of contemplating and entering the mystery of Jesus’ sacrifice of himself for us. They invite us to embrace his gift of love with our hearts as well as with our minds.

We are offering a simple Stations of the Cross experience for individuals and families on Good Friday (April 7) between 5:00PM and 6:30PM on the second floor at 640 W Irving Park Road. There are fourteen stations total; seven of them include a tactile element that is especially suited for families with children. If you are planning to attend, you can sign up for a slot below.

Good Friday Gift

Every year on Good Friday, as we contemplate Christ’s suffering on the cross, Immanuel collects a special offering on behalf of people who are suffering in the world around us. This year, our Good Friday Offering will support World Relief as they provide aid to those in Turkey and Syria who are in the wake of destructive earthquakes.

You can give by cash or check at our Good Friday service, or online at any point during Holy Week (April 2 – April 9).
