"Thom’s last Sunday with us will be on January 13th and we will send him off in fine fashion as we share a meal together after worship that day. It was agreed that a wonderful gift from the church would be scholarship money to be held by the Stegall Seminary Scholarship Foundation until Thom enrolls in seminary. I know you are as proud of Thom as I am. Not every church can claim that they have sent one of their own and supported their journey toward ordination. Please make your checks to Providence UMC and note on the check “Dumas Scholarship.” "
