United Methodist Student Day, one of the six churchwide Special Sundays of The United Methodist Church, is Sunday, November 28. Money for UM scholarships and loans comes from a variety of funding sources – offerings on the designated Sunday, earnings on investments of gifts from wills and annuities, and repayments and interest on student loans.
Support for United Methodist Student Day is crucial if we are to honor the church’s commitment to educating a new generation of Christian leaders. Within the NC Conference, a total of $130,223 in scholarships has been awarded to 60+ students in 2010. Watch this video to see how a student in Ohio has been impacted by a UM scholarship.
