Our Mission

Immanuel Lutheran School, a ministry of Immanuel Lutheran Church, exists to call students into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, to move them into active discipleship in a Christian congregation, and to equip them to be effective witnesses in the community. Immanuel Lutheran School strives to direct the educational experiences of its students, while developing their talents to their greatest potentials, so that they may fulfill God’s plan for service in our world.

"Train up a child in the way he should go, and when is he is old, he will not depart from it."
Proverbs 22:6

Our Philosophy

We believe that education at Immanuel Lutheran School must equip our students for a life of praise to God. Therefore, we teach the Bible and by the Spirit of God working in us, share the truth that God created the world, that man fell into sin, and that God in love sent His Son, Jesus, to redeem fallen mankind. We believe that God is love and that this love reaches down from God to all mankind. We further believe that the prime function in this life is to serve God by spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ by word and deed.

Spiritual

We hope that each child receives an aware¬ness of his relationship to God, who has redeemed him from his sins. It then follows that each child, in response to God's redeeming love, lives a consecrated life of service, forgives others as God has forgiven him, and patterns his life after the life of Christ.

Intellectual

We believe that the child should develop mental abilities to his greatest potential under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, so that he can better understand Scripture and more effectively love others, himself, and God.

Moral

We believe that a child needs stable adults with whom he can daily identify and from whom he can learn. Within this context he can learn self love and self respect. Immanuel Lutheran School is to bring to him, the great love of God and His plan of salvation through Jesus Christ.

Social

We seek to train the child in such a way that he will become a concerned and loyal member of his family, community and country.

Physical

We strive to instill a proper respect for the child’s physical body.

Our Objectives

Immanuel Lutheran School will develop purposeful activities to guide the children in development of their spiritual, intellectual, moral, social and physical potentials.
