Immanuel Lutheran School has been educating students in the rural area known as Frankentrost for 165 years. We teach from a Christian, Lutheran point-of-view, but we welcome families of all faiths. Immigrant German settlers organized the church and school in 1847-1848. For many years (1848-1869) the log church building served as worship center and schoolhouse for the community. The pastor served as the teacher until 1869 when a school building was constructed. When a new church sanctuary was built in 1870, the congregations used the old log church structure as its Christian day school. The first teacher, Mr. Conrad Graebner, was called to Immanuel Lutheran School. The site was later to be designated the “Central School” because of its proximity to the church building. God, in the Holy Scriptures, reveals Himself as a Triune God. 1. The Father is revealed as Creator, Preserver, and Governor of the universe and the affairs of men. 2. Jesus Christ, sharing in the Trinity is revealed as the Redeemer of the world, and personal Savior, our substitute, to whom we owe loyalty in a life of submission and service. 3. The Holy Ghost is revealed as the Sanctifier upon whom we rely for faith and a new spiritual life. Man, created with a free will, chose to sin and lost God’s image. He is, by virtue of his sinful nature, a lost and condemned creature, destined for an eternity in hell.
