Our Five Talents grant recipients awarded more than $5,000
Oakbrook's Our Five Talents, the middle school's nonprofit giving foundation, awarded more than $5,000 in grants Wednesday to 15 recipients to help ministries locally and globally.
The funds were raised during this year's annual Middle School Missions Bazaar, which has raised more than $25,000 since its start seven years ago.
The foundation’s name is based on Matthew 25 The Parable of the Talents, which encourages Christians to use their individual gifts to serve others.
This year's recipients will use their grant awards to help fund mission trips, Senior Projects, and other service projects that help share the love of Jesus.
In addition to the awards ceremony, students in middle and upper school heard from Spartanburg County Foundation's Chief Operating Officer Mary Thomas.
