LIBERIAN STUDENT TUITION Sponsorship Program: Thank you to all the congregation members who have supported a Liberian student through the TSP program. This year, we celebrate the graduation of 2 students from the program and applaud the 52 students who will have the opportunity to continue their education through the TSP program because of the generous support of our members. Student information and directions for submitting payment are available on the TSP display table in the Narthex. If you sponsored a student last year and indicated you wanted to continue sponsoring that student, you will find and envelope containing the student information labeled with your name at the table. If you are interested in joining the sponsorship program, there are also new children available to support. Please stop by the table before or after church to learn more. Questions? Contact Cindy Wingenroth at 627-2111 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
