Risen Savior Evangelical Lutheran Church: people created by God the Father, claimed by Jesus Christ the Son of God, and commissioned by the Holy Spirit of God through Word and Sacraments. We glorify the name of Jesus by reaching out with the Gospel and acts of Christian love to the people of Manteno, Peotone, the surrounding communities, and the whole world.


We would like to thank Pastor Carl Janssen who will be leading us in service. Pastor Kevin is attending his niece’s confirmation and will be returning later today or on Monday.

There are only 2 confirmation classes left. Confirmation will be held Wednes¬day at 7 p.m. On Sunday, April 27 we will question both our 7th & 8th grade students during the 9:00 service. Then, the Service of Confirmation will be held on Sunday, May 4 during our 9:00 service.

Saturday our trustees are sponsoring a spring cleanup day from 9 AM until 2 PM. They would greatly appreciate any help you can provide.
