Special Mission Offering for June: Granholm Scholarship

students at First BaptistRecognizing the tremendous costs for higher education, we began the Don and Mary Granholm Scholarship fund to help support our own youth with their aspirations of pursuing a college education. At our Quarterly Business Meeting in April 2014, the congregation voted to seed a scholarship fund through one of our special offerings. The Mission Task Team has scheduled this offering for the month of June. The offering received for this year will be added to the fund that is now a part of Special Funds, allowing it to grow into a larger fund.

While we cannot hope to provide full scholarships as other institutions are able to do, we can provide a small token that might be used for books or other needs.

Our goal for this offering this year is $500.

Scholarship applications are available on the Mission Table in the Narthex, or in the church office, and are due back to the Granholm Scholarship Committee by June 20th.
