The Pastor's Corner
March 29, 2013
Today is Palm Sunday, the day when Jesus made His triumphant
entry into the city of Jerusalem. For some three years prior,
Jesus refrained from an open assertion of His messiahship,
letting His words and works speak for Him. But now the time for
silence has passed and Jesus openly presents Himself as the
Messiah. This day is also bittersweet for us because even as we
read of the celebration, we know that Friday is coming. The
cross is coming and we know that many in this same crowd who
exchanged words of praise, will within a few short days shout
words of death. However, our praise of Jesus should not cease.
We must continually give Him praise not only during this
wonderful season of Easter, but every day we are blessed to see.
So let us like those on that Palm Sunday receive Him as King of
Kings, and Lord of Lords. Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in
the name of the Lord!
Need an encouraging Word? Come study and fellowship each Wednesday night from 6:30 until 7:30 pm. You will enjoy the Word and the fellowship with us.

Even if you do not have a
college-aged child at home, please share this with someone who
does, pass this scholarship information on to anyone and
everyone that comes to mind, especially churches, fraternities,
sororities, clubs, etc. Though there are a number of companies
and organizations that have donated monies for scholarships
which are to be used for the further education of African
Americans, a great deal of the money is being returned because
of a lack of interest or knowledge.
No one is
going to knock on our doors and ask if we can use a
scholarship!! Please help get our children involved. There is no
need for money to be returned to donating companies or
organizations because we fail to apply for it. Please
pass this information on to family members, nieces, nephews,
friends with children etc. and help get them involved in
applying for these scholarships. We must get the word out that
money is available. If you are a college student or getting
ready to become one , you probably already know how useful
additional money can be. Our youth really could use these
scholarships. Thanks! (If clicking on the link doesn't work,

are legit and that they do not ask you to pay any money before
you get your scholarship. Make sure that you read all the terms
of the scholarships.
2014 Scholarships Available For Black
Students (Will probably be available for 2015 also)
Every year, more than $50 billion dollars
in scholarships are given away to students of all ethnic
backgrounds. This number includes many awards that are given
only to African American students and other minorities. Such
opportunities are needed because African Americans continue to
show the greatest need in the area of financial assistance. Even
more, the education gap between minority students and their
white counterparts is still very wide.
This web site was designed to help
African American students find the latest scholarships and
grants that are being given away by non-profit organizations,
government agencies and major corporations. Most of these
programs aim to assist disadvantaged people who come from poor
families and cannot afford to pay for college. However, there
are also programs that recognize and award students who can
demonstrate excellence in education, sports, etc. regardless of
their financial status.

scholarships that may be available to you.
