Our 
Story

The Immanuel Myanmar Church was established on February 17, 2010. On the day we had the first service, we were seven people including children. It was held at someone’s house in an apartment. By the grace of God, under the leadership of Pastor Manar Chai, the attendance grew more and more and we started praying for a place to have a formal worship service.
 
By God’s grace, through the help of Hary Rocker and pastor Emmanuel, we were able to have room to worship at Wheaton Evangelical Free Church at the end of2010. God has blessed us in many ways. We also thank WEFC for allowing us to worship in one of the rooms in the Church. Even when WEFC joined The CompassChurch, they still allowed us to worship in the same room. We also thank the leadership and the members of The Compass Church.When the Compass Church members are increasing in numbers, due to space limitations, we were no longer able to worship in the room we used. We again tried to find a place to worship. God answered our prayer.
 
Du Mohmoh from WorldRelief helped us to get a place in the First Presbyterian Church of Wheaton. They warmly welcome us, and we're very thankful for Pastor Kellen Smith, the Elders, and the Church members of FirstPresbyterian Church of Wheaton.

As of now we have purchased a building complex in St Charles Illinois and renovated the space into a church with the help of church members' experience and handy skills. As a church, we recognize all the contributions, craftsmanship, dedication, and hard work of our members and outside helpers during the most challenging times of transition & establishing the church.

Because of the difficulties we have in communication, we use the main language of Burma, Burmese, which is not a dialect, such as Chin, Kachin, Karen, etc. that other Burmese churches may use. That’s why we are still moving forward as Immanuel Myanmar Church from the beginning of the Church, till today we have experienced lots of difficulties, but at the same time, we also witnessed lots of God’s miraculous hands throughout the years. As long as the Lord has not yet returned, this is the desire from the bottom of our hearts that we are longing to worship and exalt him. May the name of the Lord who has led us thus far be glorified forever and ever.
