This scholarship fund was established well over 20 years ago in memory of J.W. Campbell and his son, Carson. We are grateful for the generosity of the Campbell family for this memorial gift which has been a blessing to more than 200 FPC students.

The deadline for applications, including transcripts of high school grades or a transcript of the most recent year of college completed, is Friday, June 16th. The Permanent Funds Committee will consider all applications and announce its decision by the end of July. Please direct any questions to Penny Colbaugh at

Earth Care Congregation

In helping with our "Earth Care Congregation" program, parents, help your children respect God's creation by avoiding their becoming part of our "throw away society." In the words of 16th Century Astronomer Johannes Kepler, "Nature uses as little as possible of everything." Perhaps we might do the same?
