2021-22 Scholarships

Newman UCC’s scholarship program is available to all members pursuing higher education. You don’t need to be in your teens or 20’s to get an award. Have you considered going back to school to learn a new skill or trade, or to pursue a degree? Then make sure to apply!

Newman Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, has been blessed by the generosity of individuals and families who chose to donate funds to offer scholarships to Members of Newman UCC pursuing Higher Education. This includes trade schools, colleges and graduate programs. This began over 50 years ago with the first awards in the form of a $25 loan and has grown to where we awarded nearly $40,000 to a pool of 16 individuals last year – a continuation of a truly incredible ministry!

To be eligible, individuals must:

  • Be a Member of Newman UCC. The parent(s) do not need to be members, but the student must be.

  • Be attending an accredited program.

  • Complete their essays electronically.  

  • Submit a qualified essay by the deadline of 05/03/2021.

  • online church school

    Church School is a space for kids 12 and younger to connect with one another, learn about the Bible, and grow in their spirituality. Using various media sources and projects, our teachers will engage students in lessons on various topics from the Bible that will highlight a story or a theme. We will invite students to ponder these stories alongside each other to create meaning and memories that will last a lifetime. 

  • youth - racial equity

    book discussion

    When our church began deeper Racial Equity work, we began to notice that there were youth who were also engaged and interested in this work as well.  We began a Youth Racial Equity and Social Justice Book Discussion for youth in grades 6-12 to fuel their curiosity and sensitivity. 

    Books will be selected highlighting various topics relating to racial equity or social justice for discussion. 

  • middle school youth group

    Middle School Youth Group is a space that offers students a place to build relationships, grow spiritually, and enjoy some fun. Each week students will have some time to share with one another,  engage with scripture, and share what is on their minds and hearts. 

    Youth Group meets on Wednesdays at 7pm.

  • faith-full affirmations

    Our new program, Faith-Full Affirmations is a "Confirmation"-style program for adults AND youth. It is for anyone seeking membership into the church as well as those who are looking to strengthen their knowledge of the Bible, faith practices and what it means to belong. 

    Faith-FULL Affirmations is a three-module program which will be offered on Sunday mornings at 9am using the Zoom platform. You are invited to participate in one module, two modules, or all three if you'd like. 

  • ADULT - racial justice book series

    In this book series, we will look at elements of systemic racism from a variety of perspectives as presented in books on the topic.  


    The series is intended to give readers the opportunity to explore current social issues more deeply as well as to be challenged in ways that will draw out ideas for addressing the topics in our wider community. 

    All are welcome to participate!

  • faith based discussion

    The Faith Based Discussion is a group that meets every Friday morning to discuss a variety of ideas in relationship to faith. News articles, short stories, and books are all used alongside scripture to discuss the application to the time and our lives. Participants come from diverse theological backgrounds and welcome others to share their perspectives on life, faith, and spirituality.
