Some years ago, Mr. Maynard May, a past member of Faith UMC, established an Endowment in memory of his late wife, Lillian May. Mrs. May was a long-time church musician and both she and Mr. May deeply valued the role of music in worship. Through this Endowment, Mr May’s hope is that Faith UMC can play a role in the development of musical talent and leadership, which will continue a tradition of excellent Wesleyan worship.
With permission of Mr. May, Faith is opening the Lilian May Music Scholarship to anyone, young or old, across the UM4GI Parish. The scholarship has traditionally paid for the music lessons of one person per year. Please apply by written letter to Faith UMC’s Administrative Council by Friday, February 1st. Faith’s Administrative Board will determine the scholarship recipient on February 12th.
