Meet Us Mondays

Meet Us Monday: Seminarian Aaron Schultz

Weekly all-school Chapel services are an important part of our ILS culture, and we warmly invite parents, siblings, grandparents, and friends to join us for these services.

A voluntary offering will be collected at weekly Chapel services throughout the year. The offerings will be distributed to Mr. Aaron Schultz, to support him and his family as he pursues his Master of Divinity at Concordia Theological Seminary, and to Pastor Bombaro & family, for their missionary work in Latvia.

We’re using our Meet Us Monday series to introduce (or re-introduce) ILS families to Mr. Schultz and Pastor Bombaro and their families, to better understand how our prayers and offerings will be supporting them and their work this year.

After 5 years teaching at Immanuel, Mr. Aaron Schultz and his family moved to Ft. Wayne, Indiana, where Mr. Schultz is currently pursuing his Master of Divinity at Concordia Theological Seminary in preparation for ordination in the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. They are now beginning their second year there.

Meet Us Monday: Miss Rebecca Hobbs, 4th Grade Teacher

We are happy to welcome Miss Rebecca Hobbs to the Immanuel community as our new 4th grade teacher!

Miss Hobbs earned B.A. in Classical Liberal Arts, with an emphasis in History and Education from Patrick Henry College.

Since 2015, Miss Hobbs has taught 5th Grade at The Ambrose School in Boise, ID. Prior to joining the Ambrose Faculty, she taught English to grammar school students in South Korea for nearly two years.

Miss Hobbs has a desire for her students to learn to love Christ more through learning to love what is true, good, and beautiful. As her students read stories of great heroes, love, courage, and self-sacrifice, she prays their souls will be so stirred by these things that they forever seek the One who is the ultimate Truth, Goodness, and Beauty- the Lord God.

Miss Hobbs is originally from Baker City, OR. In her spare time she enjoys horseback riding, reading, traveling, spending time with family and friends, and all the Korean food, language, and culture she can get.

Meet Us Monday: Miss Michelle Hennig, Deaconess Intern

We are happy to welcome Miss Michelle Hennig to the Immanuel community for the 2019-2020 academic year as a Deaconess Intern.

As the daughter of a Lutheran Pastor, Miss Hennig’s family moved several times, but the majority of her childhood was spent in southern and central Illinois. Attending Lutheran schools from Kindergarten through high school helped to shape both her faith and vocation as a future church worker.

With a love for singing and theology, Miss Hennig chose to pursue these interests at Concordia University Chicago. Miss Hennig is a Theology major in the process of obtaining her Deaconess certification, with double minors in Classical Education and Psychology. At Concordia, she ran track, sang in the choir, worked for residence life, served as a mentor for freshmen students, built relationships with fellow believers, and met her fiance, Andrew.

Miss Hennig enjoys traveling, hiking, camping, sewing, singing, being with her family, and spending time with her dog, Luther. She is looking forward to serving and working with Immanuel Lutheran Church and School students and families in the coming year.

In just over a week, we will be celebrating with our ILS Class of 2019 at our Graduation Vespers Service. It is hard to believe that our year is fast coming to a close, and we will soon be saying our farewells to our graduating 8th grade students. These past weeks, we’ve been counting down alongside our 8th graders with some reflections and memories from their time at ILS in our "Meet Us Monday" series. We hope you enjoy getting to better know the members of the ILS Class of 2019 and that you will join us next week, on Wednesday, June 5th, as we celebrate with our Graduation Vespers.

Class of 2019 Meet Us Monday: Jack B.

The clock is racing to the end of the year as we’re now just two weeks from Graduation! As we prepare to bid farewell to the graduating members of our ILS Class of 2019, we’ve asked each of them to spend some time reflecting and reminiscing with us about some of their favorite times here at Immanuel. It has been delightful to hear some of the things that they remember most about their years at ILS, and we look forward to seeing great things from each of these students as they head to high school and beyond. This week, we continue our "Meet Us Monday" series hearing from another member of our ILS Class of 2019. We hope you enjoy getting to better know our wonderful 8th graders, and we thank them for taking the time to respond and share more about themselves!

We hope you are enjoying our Class of 2019 “Meet Us Mondays” series as we hear from our 8th graders in their own words their favorite ILS memories and traditions, words of wisdom they remember from their teachers, highlights from their 8th grade year, and where they’ll be heading to high school in the fall. It is hard to believe that we’re just a month out from the end of the school year, and it is even harder to believe these students will soon be graduating. We truly appreciate our Class of 2019 taking the time to reflect on their time at ILS and share some great memories with us all here on the blog!
