"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity."
--1 Timothy 4:12, ILS theme verse for the 2017 2018 school year

Grades 3-7 Sing at Graduation Services
Students in Grades 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 will be singing at Immanuel’s graduation service. Students should arrive no later than 5:15 PM in the music room to warm up. They have worked hard all year in music class making beautiful music, and this is a great opportunity to end the school year in song and say goodbye to the eighth graders. Please contact Mrs. Rudy at  with questions.

The Results Are In!
The final tally is in! From preschool through eighth grade, we collected 4,143 Box Tops! Each Box Top Coupon is worth 10 cents, so this equals $414.30 in funding to the PTL to continue supporting our students and teachers, and parents.
Fending off a last-minute push, Mrs. McFarland’s sixth grade won the Bubblegum Recess and will be enjoying their Bubblicious Bubblegum today. Sixth grade collected a whopping 838 Box Tops and eighth grade came in a close second with 706, nearly overtaking sixth grade in the last day. A huge THANK YOU to everyone who went through their pantries to clip the Box Top coupons!
Thank You So Very Much!
The ILS faculty say a HUGE "Thank you!" to all the parents who so graciously shared their time by supervising the lunchroom on Tuesdays. This quiet lunch period each week was such a blessing to the teachers!
Retirement Celebrations!

We will be recognizing the ministries of Terri Holmes, Barb Iteen, Sue Gutwein, Manny Gutwein--long-term workers in God’s kingdom at Immanuel. A reception will immediately follow this service, prior to the voters meeting.
As announced at last weekend’s worship services, a third Call Committee is being created for the purpose of calling a youth leader. Kari Larsen, Immanuel’s Director of Youth Ministries since 2004, is transitioning to Director of Family Ministries at ILCS. Kari is working with the middle and high school students through the summer while constructing her new family ministry plans for the upcoming ministry year.
A Visitation Ministry Coordinator is also being added to the ILCS staff. This individual will work with those involved in the Eucharistic Ministry who serve Immanuel’s shut-ins by providing Holy Communion, and others, to best serve this growing segment of the Immanuel community.
First Grade Call Committee has conducted three onsite interviews. Chairperson John Barry may be contacted at Middle School Call Committee conducted four Skype interviews and has scheduled two onsite interviews. Chairperson Julie McFarland may be contacted at

Please continue to keep this process, and everyone involved, in your prayers.

The four positions made available this spring are in the middle school as well as Grade 1, Preschool 4, and music. Minimum requirements are a BA in Education and state certification, but highly qualified applicants who meet guidelines for a Call will receive priority consideration.
