The New Hope Baptist Church of East Orange “Julia A. Slack Scholarship Committee” serves God and the Church family. The committee provides educational resources that helps to advance the minds of our youth. More importantly, they assist the church by selecting qualified applicants to receive financial resources that will contribute to their future endeavors.
The Julia A. Slack Scholarship fund was established as a memorial to Sis. Julia A. Slack. Sis. Slack was a dedicated Christian teacher of young people, who was concerned about their spiritual and scholarly development.
Sis. Slack loved the Lord, giving of her time, talent, resources, so that others might come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Her life is an example for everyone. Moreover, it encourages us to seek the wisdom and understanding that only comes from a closer relationship with God.
