Connections are important

We believe that God created us for community. At Immanuel that plays out in different ways. We want to help you connect with God and with each other. We want to provide opportunities to use the gifts and talents God gave you in service to the church and the community. We want to support and encourage you (and for you to do the same with others) throughout all aspects of your life. 

We'd be happy to talk with you about getting connected at Immanuel. Come and visit us this weekend!

 

Our God is Real and Present Here!

We want to do all we can today to Prepare Kids for Tomorrow! We are pleased to offer quality PreK - 8th education in a loving and caring environment. Our teachers and staff place a high value on learning, but an even greater emphasis on your children. We believe that in order to truly prepare them for tomorrow we not only need to teach them the fundamentals, but provide them with opportunities to be a good neighbor. 

We'd love to show you what we do! Schedule an onsite visit today!

 

Building stronger family & faith foundations through sports.

Upward is a nationwide program that provides opportunities for all kids to Play with Purpose. 

To Play With Purpose means you make smart decisions, improve in your physical development, discover your life's purpose, and put others needs before your own.

It's more than just the game. It's every practice, every drill, every pivot, every pass and shot. Become more than just an athlete.

Philosophy of Teaching

I believe each child has been uniquely created by God. This means that each of my students has a unique learning style and I strive to incorporate a variety of activities in the classroom in order to give each of them a chance to shine and be successful. In this way I encourage, excite and motivate my students to grow academically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. The most important thing that I want them to learn is how much Jesus loves them and that He made each and every one of them special.
