Lydia Patterson Scholarship Day
Sunday August 1st
As a church, we would like to sponsor a student at the Lydia Patterson Institute.
For more than 100 years, Lydia Patterson Institute has been a beacon for young Mexicans and Mexican-Americans, giving them English language fluency and a sturdy, faith-based education that often brings transforming opportunities.
The school draws from the toughest areas of Juárez, a city beset by poverty and other social ills. But roughly 98 percent of institute’s graduates go on to college, with last year’s senior class attracting some $1.5 million in scholarships.
FUMC of Fort Smith has supported LPI in the past with offerings and by having youth interns in the summer. Following the pandemic, the school is in dire need of financial help, as many of the parents of students are still out of work or cannot cross the border to their jobs in El Paso. (The students are still allowed to cross to go to school.)

A $6,000 donation will sponsor a student for the year. You can mail your offering to the church or can make an online donation anytime before August 1st. You can also bring your offering to the altar on Sunday, August 1st.
Seven weeks, starting July 27th, 6:00pm-7:30pm in the
Fireside Room
Fireside Room in the Family Life Center
Dinner will be taco salad & dessert will be cookies that we will decorate. Elizabeth Thames will walk us through decorating.
Come join the fun and bring a friend!!
Please reserve your spot by July 15th
Nursery will be provided upon request.
Call Gail Oakes 479-782-5068 or email with any questions.
