Another school year begins at Immanuel Lutheran on Wednesday, August 17th! This year, we begin our 148th school year of providing Christian education to the Washington area! Throughout this school year, continue to pray for the overall ministry that occurs at Immanuel, including:
- That the seed of faith is planted in the lives of our children and that it takes root in their hearts and grows strong
- That families stay committed to investing in their children’s spiritual and academic education

Work on the new school office is coming together nicely. Only four weeks of summer left and we are on target for having everything complete on this project in plenty of time before the start of school. Drywall is almost all hung and the mudding and taping is nearly complete! After the painting is done and new carpeting put in, the office will be ready for us to move in! This photo shows the view of the new school office from the main entrance for the school. In the photo is the new office window, where families and guests will stop by throughout the day.
The Washington Town and Country Fair Parade is right around the corner, held on Sunday, July 31st! The theme for the fair this year is "The Best Days of Summer". This year, the Evangelism Committee has offered a free t-shirt to all students wanting to walk alongside and participate with the ILS float. The t-shirts will be tie-dyed and state "The Best Days of Immanuel – Building Strong Families". Students will be walking alongside the float playing summer games (water guns, Frisbees, etc.) The fair parade starts around 4:30 pm, but an exact meeting time will be determined later.
