Share-LT $5 Fridays

The Share-LT program provides six weeks of safe, active and enriching experiences for teens attending Lawrence Township schools. The program has traditionally run Monday - Thursday, and this year, Share's leadership is stepping out in faith and adding a "bonus" day to the summer programming. $5 Fridays will provide five extra opportuntiies for teens to be safe and positively engaged in activities at an affordable cost. The program is expected to serve an average of 30 youth on the extended Fridays, with an expected total of 60 youth served throughout the course of the summer program, which runs June 10 through July 19, 2019.

In addition to returning families from the prior year, Share receives referrals from family liaisons, guidance counselors, and school administrators of youth identified as in need of access to food, transportation, mentoring, and opportunities to be positively engaged while their parents are working during the summer.

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 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!”
