Kids of the Kingdom

Our school theme is “Kids of the Kingdom”.  We will explore the ways God used and uses children to advance the Gospel message.  Our hope is to inspire our “Kids” to fulfill God’s calling in His Kingdom.

Second Quarter Chapel Offerings

We are now beginning our drive for the West Carver Food Shelf, the McLeod Emergency Food Shelves, and the Sibley County Foodshare. Students may bring non-perishable food or monetary offerings on Fridays. This mission project will continue through the middle of January. 

Emanuel Geography Bee

On December 21st we held our school Geography Bee Final.  Students from fourth grade through eighth grade competed to become our school champion.  Cole Stuedeman finished in third place.  Lauren Rapp finished in second place.  Our school champion for 2017 is Audrey Kamps.  She will now take the next level test to earn the right to go to the state level geography bee.

Bake Sale Thank You

The PTL Bake Sale Committee would like to thank everyone who donated their delicious food items to this year's Bake Sale. We are blessed to have Emanuel Lutheran School parents and staff, as well as many congregation members, donating in abundance each year. Also, thank you to all who purchased the tasty treats.

Tuition Assistance Fund

Each year many of our Emanuel students benefit from tuition assistance.  If you would like to make a donation toward this fund, please contact Mr. Bentz.  Any size gift will help.  Our hope is that family finances will not keep any student from hearing the Gospel here at Emanuel.

Amazon Smile

If you shop on Amazon, you can help Emanuel as well.  If you go to you can sign up to support Emanuel Lutheran School.  The shopping experience is the same as a typical visit to Amazon, but we receive a percentage of your purchase.  If you have questions, please talk to Mr. Bentz.

Scrip Makes Cents

The Scrip Program helps raise money for our PTL by selling gift cards and certificates. The Scrip fund receives a discount when purchasing these cards/certificates, then sells them at face value. You pay nothing extra and PTL receives thousands of dollars a year. It’s that simple! Scrip will be sold on all Sundays and communion Saturdays after church.  We will be sending home an updated list of all available Scrip soon.  If you have questions, please contact Greg Cummins.
