In addition to the overwhelming congregational support our school receives, we encourage individuals to partner with our ministry, keeping Immanuel’s tradition of excellent education strong. Those who partner with Immanuel can provide support through prayer, volunteering, gifts in kind and monetary donations. Partners in Education (PIE) provides ongoing annual support for our school ministry which has included
- financial aid
- special projects
- day to day operations
What is Manna? Manna is a fundraising program that offers individual gift certificates to many businesses. Immanuel families have the opportunity to pre-order gift cards online or by submitting a paper form to the school or church. Each gift card will earn a percentage of profit, as shown on the order sheet. Please visit the Manna website at www.RaiseRight.com for the current gift cards available. Online ordering and payment is also available, please contact us for your sign on information and follow the online instructions.
You can choose how you want to have your profit spent. Please make sure to clearly state whether you are contributing to Church, Tuition/PTL, ALL PTL, Youth, or Scholarship.
How do you purchase Manna? Manna may be purchased by preorder only, either via paper orders or online by noon on the Sunday of our order date. Manna paper orders and payments can be turned in at the main school office, via kiddie mail, or to the church office. Online orders with online payments must be submitted by noon on Sunday, for delivery by Wednesday.
It is very important that you please indicate on your Manna order form or notes section online where you would like your Manna preorder to be delivered. If your Manna order is not delivered on time, please call or email us immediately.
Please note that Manna orders will be delivered to Preschool, Main School Office, and Church Office. Make sure to mark your choice of delivery location when you order.
What if I lost my Manna cards? Manna is exactly like cash. We cannot replace lost cards. If they are not working, please let us know ASAP!
When will I receive credit for my Manna purchases? We will credit your tuition account to reflect your last tuition payment in May. Manna statements will be emailed to your email address on file. Please contact Amanda DeMarsh with any email address changes.

MUSIC PROGRAM SUPPORT
Parents and families who support our school musicians really make a difference! We are truly thankful for the parents and family members who provide transportation to early morning rehearsals and performances, encourage students to practice at home, attend performances, and support our musical groups in a wide variety of ways. Here at Immanuel, parents of gr. 5-8 extra-curricular music activity participants are considered a part of “Supporting Notes,” which supports Immanuel's band, chorus, and handbells/handchimes. Directors may reach out throughout the year to parents with specific needs-but if you have a specific way that you'd like to offer to help, please contact one of us. Families can also support these groups by participating in our annual Hanging Basket and Planter Sale each Spring.
HANGING BASKET AND PLANTER SALES BENEFIT OUR FINE ARTS PROGRAM
In early spring, Immanuel's school band, chorus and bell/chime students sell florist quality plants just in time for your spring porch decorating and Mother's Day gifts. Proceeds from these sales provide additional funds for necessities such as new music for the various groups, equipment such as handbell gloves and music stands, festival fees, student recognition awards and much more. The profits from this successful sale have allowed us to offer students the ability to participate in the music group activities with no annual "group participation fee".
