The FBC leadership and church family help make Christian Education more financially accessible with two programs: the Christian Education and Homeschool Assistance Program and the Pastoral/Missionary Education Scholarship. Read more about each below.



Instruction provided in the home, at school, and in the church are individually and equally important in the development of children to be committed disciples of Jesus Christ.


It is the desire of the Elders of FBC to make Christian Education or Home Schooling more accessible to those FBC members who desire those forms of instruction for their children.


In order to help qualified FBC members with the financial commitments associated with Christian Education in the school or home setting, FBC through their Christian Education and Home Schooling Fund, will pay a portion of tuition costs for their children enrolled in and attending Oskaloosa School for Christian Education (OSCI) and Pella Christian High School (PCHS) or in an approved Christian School; OR will pay an established amount to cover a portion of annual costs for instructional materials used in accepted home schooling of their children, as described in the documents below. Click on the links below to download further guidelines for the program or an application.


Consider giving to this fund in your regular offerings and designate it as "Christian Education Fund" in the memo line or offering envelope.



The Pastoral/Missionary Education Scholarship was established in 2024 to provide financial resources to full-time college students pursuing a degree for pastoral or missionary work. Applications are available in the church office and will be accepted from July 1 to September 1 each year. 


We would love to hear from you! Contact our church office if you woul like more information.
