- All ages - The Robert London Scholarship. The Christian Education and Growth Committee is pleased to offer scholarships to any child, teen or young adult who wishes to go to a church camp, church leadership conference, church national event, or other Christian Education event. The amount given to each student is considered on an individual basis. Applications can be picked up in the church office and are also available here on web site. The scholarship is in the memory of Rev. Bob London, who was active in our congregation. For the 18 years before his retirement he served as the Christian Education Consultant for the churches of the Lehigh and Lackawanna Presbyteries in the Synod of the Trinity, Presbyterian Church USA. In this capacity, he also served as the staff consultant for Camp Lackawanna in Tunkhannock, Pa., and Camp Brainerd in Stroudsburg, Pa.
- All ages - Camp Lackawanna, the Presbytery's youth camp and conference, is done for the year. However, we expect scholarships to be available from FPC for those needing assistance next year. Forms are available at the church office or here.
