Dr. Martin Luther, A Beggar Before God

Last year was the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation, and to celebrate we at Immanuel Lutheran, E. Peoria, produced a musical written by our very own Pastor Craig Stanford. Pulling in wonderful performers from the area community theater, the dinner theater was a great success! Instead of dinner theater, this year, we are going to be holding the performance at the Apollo Theater in downtown Peoria! Read our announcement mailer right here, and feel free to connect with us via email or on facebook.

We have begun building our cast and have started rehearsals. We still need cast members for a range of characters and we are always in need of people for our chorus. As a general rule rehearsals are every Monday through Thursday 6-8 pm., but to make sure something hasn’t changed email us at or call Pastor Stanford at 309-369-0844. New to community theater? This is a great place to start.

Divine Service

Our church is located at 526 E Washington St in East Peoria, and Divine Service with Holy Communion is at 9:00 AM every Sunday. We hope to see you there!
