Scrip sales have become a great fund raising resource for FLC's Social Ministry Committee. You can buy scrip (gift cards) on Sunday mornings in the narthex. There are many gift cards for things you'll be purchasing anyway, such as grocery and gas. All profits from Scrip sales go to the Social Ministries Committee for use in their programs, above and beyond the General Fund budget.
You can also sign up for Shop with Scrip. Many vendors are available for instant purchase and redemption from your mobile phone in the Shop with Scrip program. No more writing checks; the money is automatically deducted from your checking account using Presto Pay. (The profit margin for scrip is not great enough to support credit card payments.) Scrip returns anywhere from 3 - 12% of your purchases to FLC! You can buy grocery cards, movie tickets, Amazon, even Groupon - the list is great!
Link your Fred Meyer rewards card to their Community Rewards program for First Lutheran Church. All of your purchases will result in a quarterly donation to FLC.
Sign up for Bartell's B Caring Program, and name First Lutheran Church as your charity.
Again, all the proceeds from these programs are used by Social Ministries for programs such as Cadbury Easter Eggs for Hopelink, Hopelink's End Summer Hunger program, supplementing Compass Housing fund raisers, Sock it to the Homeless, Backpacks for Kids, Christmas Giving Tree, etc.
