Belong to Jesus Daily Affirmation

Unity Lutheran Christian Elementary School is a mission project of the Southern Illinois District of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod. Our doors opened for the very first day of classes on August 19, 2003. On that day, three students were in attendance for our first two classes.

Since then, God has blessed our school in many amazing ways:

  • We now have classes for Pre-K3 through Grade Eight. The enrollment is currently about 130.
  • We have a staff of 11 highly-qualified, mission-minded educators.
  • The parents of our students have caught the vision of our school and are excited and involved.
  • Hundreds of mission-minded Christians from across the United States have shown their support through our Belong To Jesus Scholarship Fund.
  • The congregations and schools of the Southern Illinois District have provided continual support and encouragement.

In the midst of these exciting developments, the mission to our students remains the focus of our efforts. God’s desire for our school is that we teach the children about the love of God expressed in the life, death, and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ!
