College Acknowledgement Program
Our intent with this committee is to stay connected and bring the grace of God to our students. To those students living away from home we send fall and spring packages containing snacks and/or gift cards. We receive donations for this mission from our church congregation. To all of our students living at home or away from home we send cards with interesting Christian articles. Through this committee we are showing these young adults that the members of LUMC support them in their education and are always thinking about them. We have heard back from many of our students that they appreciate our efforts.
2017 Lemont UMC Scholarship Program Awards
Lemont UMC Scholarship Program
We distribute scholarship awards to qualified college students who are active in our congregation. Committee members evaluate the applications and select candidates to receive a monetary award to help them with their college expenses. The students are asked to attend United Methodist Student Sunday at LUMC in November, the Sunday after Thanksgiving to receive their scholarship. If you are an active, full time college student (twelve hours or more), attending a community college or a four year college, and attend Lemont United Methodist Church, download the following scholarship application form. Deadline for returning the completed applications is October 7, 2017.
