LaGrange District



Matching Opportunity

As United Methodists, we are committed to life-long learning. We are passionate about our children discovering the depths of Scripture through tradition, reason and experience. But for some of our children, college is expensive, making it out of reach or rendering them shackled by student loans.

We have help through a matching program, the “Dollars for Scholars” program of the Georgia United Methodist Foundation! Please help us help your students each year.

Here’s how it works:

If a student’s home UM church will provide a $1000 scholarship, that $1000 is then matched by the student’s UM school, by the United Methodist Higher Education Foundation, and finally by the Georgia United Methodist Foundation. This totals $4000 scholarship for each student annually.

This matching program can change the future for our young people. The offer also extends to those attending seminaries. I commend it to you and urge you to work within your church to set aside funds to begin the matching process listed above.

Proverbs 1:7 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.”

We celebrate the following churches in our district that have provided the first $1000 for students coming from their congregations, enabling the full $4000 match:

Burns UMC, Newnan

West Point First UMC

Inman UMC


Anyone else?

In hopeful expectation,
