Celebrate Africa Sunday, Jan. 28

Our annual Africa Sunday will be celebrated on January 28 at all services. Our guest musicians will be an African choir from Campbell. We will also get to hear about the African Student Education Fund—established by our Los Altos United Methodist Women in 2005 to support the education of female African students—and support the next generation of students through our generous gift of scholarships.

Africa University is a United Methodist institution that enrolls 1,200 full-time students from 28 countries. LAUMC currently supports 10 women at Africa University by funding 50 percent of their tuition. To date, more than $350,000 in funds have been raised and 56 women have received scholarships from LAUMC. With your help, each scholarship student receives our support through her graduation. To continue providing 10 half-tuition scholarships, we need to raise $28,230.

You can contribute by giving generously to the special Africa Sunday offering. Please make checks payable to LAUMC with “African Student Education Fund” on the memo line or donate online, designating your donation to the African Student Education gift fund.
