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.
In recent years support has focused on scholarships for students with families and fellowships awarded to outstanding graduates.
To support the goal of five scholarships — $60,000 — make a gift online using the giving form (Be sure to select “Columbia Friendship Circle” from the Designation Drop-down menu), by check, or with stock.
For questions, information, or printed brochures to share, email Valrie Thompson at ThompsonV@CTSnet.edu .
Scripture reminds us of something we know in our bones. We drink from wells we did not dig, eat from trees we did not plant, build on foundations we did not lay. That is the nature of our Christian faith, thanks be to God.
Just as we have been blessed by those who came before us, we can bless those who come after us. You can leave a legacy for generations to come–a gift, a foundation, for those who come after you—an act of faith. You can help give shape to a reality we cannot yet see, something that will only come into full flower after our days our done.
Columbia Theological Seminary invites you to consider a planned gift to Columbia as part of your legacy that will support Christ’s ministry through the church that will last.
