First United Methodist Church participates in a SCRIP Card Fundraising Program. Scrip is a fundraising tool that enables church families to raise additional funds for the church simply by ordering gift cards from the church’s scrip program to use for their everyday shopping. When they order those gift cards, they will receive the full value of what they paid, and the church will earn an immediate rebate percentage – typically between 3% and 15%, depending on the retailer.
Orders are taken after worship on Sunday mornings and the cards are generally available to pick up at the church by the following Sunday.
Gift cards for a wide variety of restaurants, gas stations, grocery stores, department stores, etc. are available for purchase. Check here for the list of participating retailers. SCRIP vendor list. And if you have questions, stop at the SCRIP table on Sunday morning to learn more.
Buying with Scrip makes a lot of sense (as well as cents)!
