East Tenth UM Children and Youth Summer Days 2019

East Tenth Children and Youth Summer Days for Youth 2019 focuses on school-aged children and their families by providing quality care and education during this eight and half week program. Their goal is to provide personal development, field trips, and nutritious meals for each of the 80 youth expected to participate. The program directly impacts the lives of the youth, their caregivers, the community and the older students who volunteer as summer counselors. Key partners this year will be IMPACT 2818 and Camp Waycross (providing church camp scholarships), Marion University Summer Learning Institute (providing teachers in training to help educate the children) and University of Notre Dame (providing student volunteers as counselors).

Brookside Scholarships Awarded 2018

Members of the former Brookside United Methodist Church have provided opportunities to students that have decided to further their education to receive support through their Legacy endowment established when the church closed in 2008. The scholarship fund was established with the United Methodist Foundation of Indiana to be distributed annually by Metro Ministries to qualified candidates for a scholarship to a post-secondary school. 

Felicia Renteria
Scholarship Recipient

Felicia Renteria is a sophomore at Indiana State University. This is Felicia’s second scholarship from the Brookside legacy. We met Felicia last year as an incoming freshman at Indiana State University. She is majoring in Psychology, and her goal is to own her own business as a therapist or social worker. Felicia has followed up with Lisa Morris, Metro Ministries Executive Director, during the year as she completed her freshman year at Indiana State University. Felicia expressed how blessed she was to experience the love of our church family. Following the annoucement, she shared in her recent email, “Thank you so much for the email and opportunity! I'm so thankful for you all!” 

Britney Bailey

Britney Bailey is a 2018 graduate of Pike High School and an incoming freshman at Purdue University. She was referred to us through Outreach Inc., an east-side organization whose mission is “Equipping and empowering homeless teens and young adults to achieve stability and life transformation.” Britney’s reaction to our scholarship announcement was, “Wow, thank you all so much! This is such a blessing. I cannot express how thankful I am!”
