Support Us at Unity Lutheran Christian Elementary School

Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them—not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve; 3 not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock. (1 Peter 5:2-3)

The support that you give to Unity Lutheran School permits us to continue our ministry of bringing God’s Word to the communities of East St. Louis and Washington Park. We are in our fifteenth year of this mission. Unity serves approximately 125 families – brothers and sisters under our care; entrusted to us. As we look forward, we are exploring ways that we can extend our reach into the community. We thank you for your support. You bless us.

Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisors they succeed. (Proverbs 15:22)

Estate Planning: A Christian preamble in your Will or Living Trust can be a source of comfort to a mourning family, a powerful message of love and encouragement, and a public record of Christian faith. If your prayerful consideration is to leave a gift that continues to support the Unity ministry after you are gone, please let us know. We work closely with the LCMS Foundation to answer any questions you have.
