Weekday Preschool Scholarship Fund

Our Children's Learning Center has a wonderful ministry to preschoolers.  Little ones receive a solid developmental foundation built on Christian principles.  We have established a scholarship fund in memory of Marion and Doris Ellis (charter members of Lawndale Baptist Church).  The fund will assist parents with monthly fees.  Any amount you wish to give will honor this wonderful couple and help a preschool child get off to a great start in life.  Checks can be made to "Lawndale Baptist Church" and designate it for "Weekday Scholarship Fund".

For other current activities, please check the Children's section of the Lawndale Leader.
