One Generation… To The Next
I will extol you, my God and King, and bless your name forever and ever. Every day I will bless you and praise your name forever and ever. Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised, And his greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts. On the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous works, I will meditate. They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds, and I will declare your greatness. They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.
~ Psalm 145:1-7 ~
Every year we raise money to help fund the dream of higher education for future Christian leaders in our Local Kiski Valley Communities. Over the years the Pine Run Educational Scholarships have grown to include students from the Apollo, Kiski and Leechburg school districts.
In October of 2005, the Women’s Ministry started the first Scholarship fund with just $153. With a handful of donations and a few small fundraisers, they were able to give the first scholarship of $500 in the spring of 2006 to a local high school graduate. At this point, we have given over $57,000 to a total of 82 students over the course of the last 15 years.
Christians often talk about how bad things are and how they wish things were better. Well, this is one way that we are helping to make things better. Because these scholarships help make it possible for young men and young women pursue careers that bring their faith, and consequently the love of God, into the world in tangible ways.
