The First Baptist Church Scholarship Fund was formed on May 15, 2007 for the purpose of creating a college scholarship for graduating high school seniors. The primary focus of this fund was and is to motivate young applicants to continue their educational training.  The committee was chaired by Mrs. Idell W. Snowden, a former member of First Baptist Church North Street, and currently a member of Asbury Methodist Church of Natchitoches, Louisiana. Other committee members from the F. B.C.N.S. are Mrs. Eunice Foster, Mr. Terry Calhoun, Mr. Breland Johnson, and Mr. Oswald Taylor.  It was agreed that  the scholarship amount be $500.00 for the first semester of school and that each student submit an application to the committee for approval. Application can be requested from the church office.

Spiritual Insight

Through receiving spiritual insight from God, the deceased deacons' wives decided to honor their deceased husbands by making donations throughout the year to assist the funding of the scholarship program. Some of these wives are educators who are very concerned with today's youth. Members, as well as the youth, are asked to donate monthly towards this project.  

Meeting Schedule

Committee members meet the first Tuesday in each month when there is business to conduct.  We ask for your continued prayers as we continue to serve our youth.
