Passionate people growing through prayer, practice and play.
We are so fortunate to have people in our church who look toward the future. Years ago some families who felt God's calling, invested money for college scholarships. These scholarships were to acknowledge our students' involvement in church, to promote their continuing dedication to spiritual growth, and to help them with their educational goals.
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, 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 Friday, October 15, 2021. Scholarship awards will be given on the Sunday after Thanksgiving at the 10:00 am service.

We awarded scholarships to eleven students. They each shared information about their chosen college, what degree they are pursuing, and spoke of their gratitude for receiving this award.
Thank you, Cris Kerins & Dawn Ferrazzi, Co-chairman of the College Acknowledgement Program (CAP) and the generous donors !!!
