New Life in Christ Church will honor more than 50 students at its 13th Annual Education Sunday service at 11 a.m. Sunday, as well as a late member who was a counselor at Belleville East.
Among the honorees are seven high school graduates who will receive a share of $21,000 in scholarships from the church. According to New Life, the church has given more than $200,000 in scholarships to metro-east seniors since it started the program in 2003.
The program will also honor Chyriell Drain-Hill, who was to have retired from Belleville East at the end of the school year. She died suddenly in April. New Life has created a scholarship in her honor and details will be provided during the service.
New Life in Christ Church is at 689 Scott-Troy Road in O’Fallon.
