Online Gift Card Ordering!
Are you wondering about online gift card ordering? Have you thought about it, but don’t know how to take the next step?
It is a great way to get your scrip from your home or office computer. Use it for Amazon, or reloading Shell, Whole Foods, CVS, and Starbucks cards. It gives a percentage directly to the church. 

How do I do that you ask?
*Log on to www.shopwithscrip.com and click on the “Register” button at the top of the page.
*Click “Join a Scrip Program” and enter our unique enrollment code (I can email that to you)
*Fill in all of the required information and click “Register”. Provide answers to the two “forget your password” questions
*Now you can place and pay for orders online either by check or by enrolling in PrestoPay (advantageous for immediate scrip and reload options since payment comes directly from your checking account)

Contact anyone on the Shopping Card Team any time to ask questions or get more information!!

Great to see you!

Now that we are finally getting some summer like weather, we decided it might be good to plan for the summer!

More time to worship outdoors in God’s creation!

I'm looking for two additional ringers for our Handbell Choir. We're looking for ones who have some familiarity with reading music and who can commit to weekly rehearsals and playing on the first Sunday of each month
(with occasional "extras").
