Fisk Sponsors

Sherman UMC’s annual Fisk University Choir Concert is more than just amazing art and music, and it offers a way of praise that goes beyond a night of singing, clapping, dancing and praying. Donations to the Concert go to fund scholarships to Fisk university students and Sherman UMC ministry in the Evanston area.

Sherman United Methodist Church is asking you to be a sponsor of this event.  Besides blessing us with wonderful music, the concert supports an excellent university that continues to educate African-American scholars and leaders, while maintaining impressive national rankings. The talented and disciplined young people in the choir assure us that Fisk University continues, as it has for over 150 years, to prepare African-American students to become future leaders.   In the past 12 years, generous sponsors like you have enabled Sherman to raise over $87,000 that went directly to Fisk. With your help we can continue to help Fisk students meet their educational goals, regardless of economic challenges.

With this concert Sherman celebrates its 97th year in ministry.  In addition to supporting Fisk students, your donation allows Sherman to do even more to “share the love of God in word and actions.” We provide assistance to Evanston families who struggle financially, partnering with other area churches to supply a local food pantry and serve meals for soup kitchens. We also mentor community youth and help support a missionary in Liberia.

We look forward to hearing from you and invite you to continue browsing our website to learn more about Sherman United Methodist Church.

We extend a big thank you to all our Fisk sponsors for 2019 so far! Add your name to this list.
