The Manna program allows Immanuel to earn money and participants to shop, all while earning money for themselves and for ILS.



The Manna Program is a way for Immanuel to earn money and the families that participate to earn money. Partnered vendors agree to sell gift cards to Immanuel at a discount. Families purchase the gift cards at full face value. Immanuel's Parent-Teacher League keeps 50 percent of this profit and the purchaser keeps 50 percent. The PTL disburses these funds to purchase needed items on the wish list for church and school every year. The purchaser's profit is disbursed via check at the end of the school year if more than $10 is earned during the course of the year, or it can be put toward the family's account to be used for expenses at school.

Order forms are available outside the school office and in the lobby. The form provides the percentages each company gives back (half of this percentage goes the purchaser and half to Immanuel). Unfortunately these percentages are not visible when ordering online. Please note that percentages change from time to time. Complete and submit the order form along with a check made out to Immanuel PTL Manna by the due date listed on the order form.

To order online:

  • Go to
  • At "Participant Sign-In" type in the ILS school code:  506.
  • At "Participant Code" type in family code – letters and numbers. Call the school office at 630 406 0157 for codes.
  • At "Password" type in family password, a four-digit number.
  • On the order page click on the down arrow corresponding to the letter of the card being purchased. The drop down box will provide a list of all companies offered and the dollar increment for each card. Click on the specific card being ordered. Use the tab button on the keyboard or mouse to navigate.
  • Enter the total dollar amount being purchased (for example, when ordering $50 worth of Starbuck’s cards, two $25 cards will be received).
  • Click “Submit” to continue ordering.
  • Keep repeating this process for each card being purchased until the order is complete.
  • Click “Click Here” at bottom of screen when finished.

A streamlined method of ordering is using MannaPay.

Orders are pending until payment is received in the school office. Payments are due by end of the school day (3:15 PM) on the due date indicated on the order sheet. When there is a half day of school, orders must be submitted by 11:30 AM. Gift Card orders will be sent home with ILS students on the Friday following the due date. Families without students at ILS may pick up their orders in either the church or school office.

Please note that Woodman’s grocery store cards cannot be ordered online. Please indicate the number of cards being purchased on the hardcopy order form and submit with payment.

Order sheets are sent home with the youngest child in each school family a few days before the due date. Order forms are also available in the church and school lobbies.

Questions may be addressed to the school office via email or at 630 406 0157.
