Our church has a history of supporting our local communities in many ways. The Scholarship Program began in 1992 and 123 students have received these awards totaling a commitment of over a half a million dollars. Currently we give scholarships to graduating seniors from each our local high schools. Loudon, Lenoir City, Sequoyah and Greenback. Students are selected by members on our Ministry Partnership Team through an application and interview process held every spring. Each student receives $1,750/yr - $7,000 total. These funds are sent directly to their college.
Along with the scholarship budget of the church, several church families have established memorials and/or trusts to support and aid some of these students. The church crafter’s group has also continued to support a student every year. If you would like more information about how to establish a memorial, please ask the church office.
