The Emmanuel Lutheran Experience

The Creative CurriculumTM used at Emmanuel Lutheran Preschool combines the best philosophies of early childhood education with developmentally appropriate practices recommended by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. The curriculum supports a well-rounded learning environment to stimulate children’s growth in all developmental areas. Our religious component is One In Christ from Concordia Publishing House.


And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” —Matthew 28:18–20

Then he said to them, “These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.” Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures, and said to them, “Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things.” —Luke 24:44–48
