Compassion Ministry

Your Needs   –    His Compassion   –   Our Hope

At The Chapel, we have an outstanding Compassion Team that is available to help you in times of need. We are connected all over the Chicagoland area with resources that can help you. Our team can provide support for tangible needs (food, clothing, etc…) and refer you to local agencies that can help as well. We are able to assist you with determining the next steps you need to take with your current needs. We can connect you with a Christian Counselor in your area or who specializes in your specific counseling need. Our team is always available to pray for you and be a listening ear in the hard times of life. Contact the Compassion Team direct line by calling 847-281-3373.

Food Assistance

Community Care Center

The cCc shows the love and compassion of Christ by offering a “hand up”, not a “handout” to community members who are in need of support for themselves or their families. Thanks to the Northern Illinois Food Bank and many generous donations, we have been able to serve and build relationships while meeting food, clothing, and household needs to those in Lake County.

Community Care Center
The Chapel – Grayslake
25270 W. Hwy 60

Wednesdays & Saturdays

If you are in need of emergency food assistance, please make sure to bring a picture ID and utility bill for proof of residence to your first visit.


Interested in volunteering? Please sign up to volunteer- we have a variety of needs and ways to serve!


Non-perishable food, clean smaller household items, toys, and clothing can be dropped off 24/7 at the back entrance of the Stadium, located in west parking lot of the Chapel Grayslake Campus.

Unfortunately, the community Care center can no longer accept large furniture, mattresses or televisions.
Thank you for your donations!

Mobile Food Pantry

In partnership with our Community CARE Center, Northern Illinois Food Bank, and the Greater Chicago Food Depository, The Chapel provides food, hope, and encouragement to communities by utilizing Mobile Food Pantry trucks to bring food directly to those communities in need.

A dedicated team of 40 to 50 volunteers distributes food at no charge on a first come, first served basis to 300 families. Families receiving assistance must bring an ID and bags or boxes for food. We proved fresh meat, produce, beverages, and non-perishable products.

For more information on serving and if you are in need of assistance, please contact a Chapel campus near your community below:
