Title: Good Theory and Good Intention? Think Again! Text: Luke 10:25-37


 “Higher Education Scholarships for Christian Leaders” awards from the Synod of the Covenant that both Hannah and Amy Jun are included. Each of them is receiving this scholarship award of $700 on this coming Sunday:

“The Synod of the Covenant is delighted to announce that it has awarded almost $40,000 in scholarships to 54 students from 10 presbyteries and 28 churches. These awards, ranging from $700 to $1,400, go to the winners of the Higher Education Scholarships for Christian Leaders.
These scholarships include 44 bachelor’s degrees, 4 associate degrees, and 6 theology degrees. Of the 54 scholarships, 33 were given to people who self-identified as Black, Korean, Asian, and African.
This year, in addition to articulating their career goals, applicants also reflected on how they work toward building congregational vitality, dismantling structural racism, and/or eradicating systemic poverty. These areas of ministry characterize the Matthew 25 movement within the Presbyterian Church (USA), of which the Synod of the Covenant is a part.
These scholarships are funded in part by per capita payments from the almost 700 Presbyterian Church (USA) congregations and more than 100,000 members, mostly in the states of Ohio and Michigan, throughout the Synod of the Covenant.”
Bring a dish to pass.  Sign up sheet in the back of church.
