In-Person Gatherings

Our 10:30AM service is now open for you to attend in person.

Registration opens each Monday below.

IN-PERSON SUNDAY GATHERINGS

  • Worship services are held each Sunday at 10:30AM at 640 W Irving Park Road. Pre-registration is required.
  • We also offer virtual Sunday School for Grades 1-12 from 9:00AM-10:00AM. 

LOCATION: American Islamic College

 

Safety Plan

We will implement the following safety measures to prevent spread of COVID at Immanuel’s services.

REGISTRATION

Each service will be capped at 50 people (including service leaders and volunteers), in accordance with the requirements of the City of Chicago.  Attendees will be required to pre-register each week and verify that they 1) do not have COVID or symptoms, and 2) are willing to wear a mask. 

TEMPERATURE CHECKS

When you arrive, an usher will take your temperature with a touchless thermometer.  No one with a fever will be permitted to enter. 

SANITATION

All high-touch surfaces will be sanitized before the first service, in between services, and after the second service. Hand Sanitizer will be available upon entry to and exit from AIC and on the table where the communion elements are served. 

MASKS

Everyone ages 3 and up will be required to wear a mask at all times within the building.  We will make one brief exception each week when we consume Eucharist together (see below for more detail).

SOCIAL DISTANCING   

We will take measures to keep attendees at the recommended 6 feet of distance.

  • Seats will be “roped off” to keep seating to every other row. The usher will direct attendees to space themselves from anyone they did not arrive with.
  • No offering basket will be passed during the service. Instead, an offering box will be placed next to the usher during the dismissal for attendees to deposit any tithes.
  • Weather permitting, we will have a space outside after the service designated for people to mingle and chat.
  • No food or beverages (other than communion) will be provided.

COMMUNION
We will take extra precautions around taking the Eucharist:

    • We will use prepacked, sealed individual wafer/juice cups.
    • The usher will have hand sanitizer available for individuals as they are released from their seats.
    • Individuals will pick up communion from a table at the front of the auditorium.
    • Once everyone has come through the line and is seated again, Father Aaron will lead everyone to consume the elements at the same time from their seats, which will be spaced safely throughout the auditorium.

Those who are unable to attend services in person can pick up pre-consecrated Eucharist before the service each Sunday, from 9AM-10AM in the back parking lot (639 W Bittersweet Place).

WORSHIP & LITURGY

The liturgy will be shortened, and at this time, for the safety of everyone in attendance, we are asking that attendees please refrain from congregational singing. The worship team will lead in songs of praise.
