The 2023-2024 School Theme is "Connected".  Students connect; they connect in play, they connect with peers, they connect with technology.  
The most important connection for any child (of any age) is with Christ.  Christ connecting Himself to us in His Word and Baptism is the Good News of our salvation.  
Lutheran Schools connect!  Immanuel wants to be connected to your whole family; in Lutheran education and Worship.   Click the tab below to learn more about Baptism at Immanuel and join us on Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. for a "blended" worship service with hymns and praise songs, scripture readings, and Bible based sermons. 

Worship with us

Sunday Mornings at 9:30 AM either in-person or online.
