Columbia Friendship Circle
Columbia Friendship Circle began when the spouses of two seminary professors encouraged other Atlanta wives to contribute one dollar each to help the seminary. From that small group, Columbia Friendship Circle has grown to include all who participate in the Presbyterian Women’s organizations throughout the synods of South Atlantic and Living Waters. Churches from other denominations are also welcome to join.
Their mission continues today in three ways:
Pray for the students, faculty, staff, and all members of the seminary community
Encourage men and women to consider Christian ministry
Provide financial assistance through selected projects that help meet the seminary’s needs
In recent years support has focused on scholarships for students with families and fellowships awarded to outstanding graduates.
To support the goal of two scholarships — $25,000 — make a gift online (Be sure to select “Columbia Friendship Circle” from the Designation Drop-down menu!), by check,or with stock.
