SCRIP cards are "gift" cards from retailers of all varieties which can be used not only as gifts, but also for your everyday expenses. Cards are available for gas, groceries, pharmacy, eating out, clothing, books, home improvement, discount stores, movies etc. When you purchase a gift card through the SCRIP Program Coraopolis UMC earns a percentage from the sale of the cards -- anywhere from 2.5% to 13%. It's a win-win way to help our church.
Ordering SCRIP cards is easy. An order form is included here. Just complete it and return it to the church office in person or by mail along with a check. Orders are accepted every 1st and 3rd Sunday and they are received by you the next Sunday.
Give it a try! It may fit very nicely into your budgeted expenses and help our church as well!
