From June 3 to September 3 visit the Scrip table to be entered in a drawing for some tasty treats! Each weekend one name will be drawn for a $5 Starbucks gift card.
In addition, each month one name will be drawn for a $10 Cold Stone Creamery gift card. If your name isn’t drawn for a particular week, your name will remain in the drawing for that month’s drawing.
And your name will have one more opportunity to be drawn for the Grand Prize drawing, a $25 Cheesecake Factory gift card.
No purchase necessary, simply stop by to say “hello” and learn a bit more; but don’t be surprised if you find something you do purchase!
What is the Scrip program?
The Scrip program is an easy way for you to financially support our church, simply by buying and using gift cards for things you normally buy. For example, you can purchase a $50 gift card to Cub Foods right from the church and use it rather than cash or credit. St. Michael’s then receives a percentage (2.5-17%) of the card value as a donation! And you don’t need to spend anything more than you normally do. Beginning this week the church will have a variety of gift cards for purchase.
How is the money used?
The proceeds from the Scrip program are being used to decrease the principle on our mortgage. This can be a great help on top of the regularly budgeted payments being made each month. As stewards of God’s money, buildings, and resources, we want to minimize our debt, which will free us to love and serve others as God calls us.
When can I participate?
A team of volunteers will begin selling scrip gift cards this weekend before Saturday service and between Sunday services. We will have options from a variety of stores–remember that gift cards make wonderful gifts and grocery or gas cards can be donated back to the church to serve the needy in our community! Order forms are also available for future purchases. Look for our table in the church lobby!

Don’t forget that Scrip gift cards make terrific gifts! They can also be purchased and donated back to the church for those in need in our community.
