Our Philosophy

Guided and empowered by the Holy Spirit, Our Redeemer Lutheran Church with School provides Christ-centered training in God’s Word integrated with excellence in education. The central purpose of our school is to nurture each child’s faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and to equip each child to live and to bear witness to that faith.

About Us

A group of parents and church members wished (and lots of prayer!) to build a Christian school. 

Through their hard work and dedication, the doors of Our Redeemer Lutheran Church with School opened in the fall of 1983, with 29 students enrolled.  

In 1990, a preschool program was added and just two years later plans to commit to a building expansion was voted on. 

Ten years after inception, a 1.2 million dollar building addition was dedicated to include 8 classrooms, a school office and the Family Life Center (gym). 

Today, academic excellence within a Christ-centered atmosphere continues at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church with School, serving more than 110 students in grades 3K-8, and more than 360 alumni are now learning, leading and serving faithfully in God's world.
