Why First Immanuel?
The entire academic experience at First Immanuel is Christ-centered. Everything we do embodies our faith. Whether it is a discussion in science class, a boys’ basketball game, or eating lunch together, every teacher and staff member acts on behalf of the students with Christ at the center of it all.
Each school day opens and closes with devotions. Weekly chapel services provide additional opportunities for students to share their faith with each other and grow in Christ. Every grade has an age-appropriate religion class where students dig into the Word of God and our tenets of faith.
Students are active in Christian ministries and service activities designed to enhance their growth as a disciple of Christ. Students hold collection drives for the military, foreign missions, and needy local families. Residents of LaSata Care Center are treated to regular visits from students who sing for the Center’s “Glory & Praise Time.”
In addition to the service projects organized through school, every student in grades 5 through 8 is responsible for completing four different “Living Stones” service projects each year. Each of the projects serves a different need: one serves the church, one serves the community, one serves a faith-based organization, and one is a special service project designed by the student. Through these projects students learn the importance of serving Christ through serving others, and find the ways in which they can best be of service to God and community.
