Praise God! Fisk Concert Fundraiser 2018

Posted on Nov 9, 2018

Praise God! the 2018 Fisk Fundraiser and Church Anniversary event was a smashing success! Through the generous sponsors and concert guest donations, this year we raised over $10,500 for the Fisk general Scholarship Fund, a 13% increase over 2017. What a way to celebrate Sherman UMC’s 96th Anniversary! Check out more about the history of the Sherman Fisk Fundraiser here.

As always, the reception meal was delivered by MacArthur’s Restaurant in support of this major event.

We would like to offer our heartfelt Thank You to the sponsors and all the members of Sherman United Methodist Church for their support and efforts in making this event a success! Without your generous donations of funds and time we could not have completed this year’s mission! For a list of this year’s sponsors go to the Fisk Sponsors page.

A special Thank You goes out to the 2018 Fisk Committee as they worked tirelessly to ensure we had a great concert and a successful fundraising event for both Fisk and SUMC. Thank You for you continued support. See you in October 2019!

Thank You Supporters of Fisk Concert 2016

Posted on Nov 22, 2016

To All Fisk Sponsors and Concert Attendees:

Praise God! The 2016 Fisk Fund Raiser and Church Anniversary event was a smashing success! We had a later start in pulling it together this year, and we had a very aggressive goal of raising $10,000.00 for the Fisk Choir. But God…..! Through His Blessings we were able to exceed the goal, for the first time in the ten year relationship we have enjoyed with Fisk.  Through the generous sponsors and concert guest donations we raised $10,904.26 for the Fisk General Scholarship Fund, our largest donation in the ten years we have partnered with Fisk! What a way to celebrate Sherman’s 94th Anniversary! The Fisk committee came together and provided all seed funds and other expenses for the concert, allowing for more of the donations to go to Fisk and SUMC. As always, the reception meal was donated by MacArthur’s Restaurant as a donation to this major event.

We would like to offer our heartfelt Thank you to the sponsors and all the members of Sherman United Methodist Church for their support and efforts in making this event a success! Without your generous donations of funds and time we could not have completed this year’s mission! Thank God for all of you!

A special Thank You goes out to the 2016 Fisk Committee as they worked tirelessly to ensure we had a great concert and a successful fundraising event for both Fisk and SUMC.

 

Thank You,
Fisk Committee Members:

Fisk University Choir in Concert for Tenth Consecutive Year!

Posted on Sep 28, 2016

It’s time! Time to be uplifted and amazed by The Fisk University Choir. Join us on Friday, October 21, 2016 at 7pm, and help us show these young people just how much their lives matter. For the tenth consecutive year, we are proud to host The Fisk University Choir in concert.

Besides blessing us with wonderful music, the concert supports an excellent university that continues to educate African-American scholars and leaders. With the help of generous sponsors, in the past nine years Sherman has been able to raise almost $50,000 that went directly to Fisk.

This event raises funds for both Fisk University and Sherman United Methodist Church, which is celebrating its 94th year of “sharing the love of God in word and actions” with programs for the hungry, for youth and helping support a missionary in Liberia.

Please consider partnering with us as a sponsor to support both Fisk students and the ministries of Sherman United Methodist Church that support struggling families. Check our sponsorship packages, listed below, to see how you can help.

Join us as we support Fisk University and give hope to struggling families. Your donation is a symbol that all lives matter.
