Providence has two scholarships offered for high school seniors: The Elle-J Scholarship and the Clark Family Scholarship.

The Elle-J Scholarship

Providence Baptist youth workers and youth group students will nominate a senior Providence student who shows compassion, acceptance, tolerance, steps outside their comfort zone, and sees all people solely for what is on the inside. Those that make nominations are required to complete a nomination form with examples of how the nominee demonstrates the characteristics.

The Clark Scholarship

Any graduating high school senior attending Providence Baptist may complete and submit a scholarship application. Consideration will be given to applicants who demonstrate Christian ideals in the church, the community, and in their daily lives.

Weekly Events

On Sundays

Sunday School
Every Sunday at 9:00am.
Students are figuring out who they are as they search for whose they are. Sunday morning provides opportunities for students to explore their personal and communal identity in Jesus Christ through meaningful community-building experiences, engaging Bible study, and relevant learning activities. Biblical stories will come alive in new and creative ways. In response to God’s amazing, unconditional love, students will be challenged to put their faith into action as they grow to understand themselves as Christ’s disciples. Our curriculum is based off the Revised Common Lectionary so will align with the worship and preaching texts each week.
