Touching Young Lives

“Give instruction to the wise and they will become wiser still; teach the righteous and they will gain in learning.” -Proverbs 9:9

The Cornerstone Scholarship was started in 2018 as an outreach program intended to positively impact the lives of graduating high school students in our church area. The money we raise and distribute is intended to further the education of students who demonstrate the work ethic, desire and perseverance necessary to be successful in their chosen area of continuing education at college or a technical school.

Scholarships are made available to eligible high school graduates from the Mabank, Kemp, Eustace, and Malakoff school districts.

Sufficient funds were raised to allow us to grant four(4) $2,000 scholarships to area graduates in 2019, 2020, and 2021. The Cornerstone Scholarship is another example of the many outreach programs of FUMC Mabank-demonstrating the church’s mission statement: “…Sharing with our neighbors God’s hope and love.”

Each year, we need to replenish our fund. January 2022 is our designated month for fundraising. We sincerely hope you’ll decide to participate in this wonderful program through your monetary gift. Visit the following link to give today: https://www.fumcmabank.com/serve/serve-through-giving/
