Opportunities to Support Trinity UMC
When you start thinking about shopping, please think of supporting your church at the same time. If you know ahead of time where you will be doing your shopping, please consider purchasing shopping cards for those stores through the church. We typically think of these cards as gift cards, but they are really shopping cards. If you shop with SCRIP shopping cards, the church benefits. Even though the benefit may be small on a per card basis, when we get more families shopping this way every week, it adds up to lots of support for your church. IF you have gifts to buy, you have a choice. You can give the shopping card as the gift or you can do the shopping with the card to buy the gift. A little planning up front can add up to huge benefits for TUMC.
If you have not tried the cards for your normal shopping, please consider trying them. We would be happy to spend some time explaining how it works with you. If you have any questions about the SCRIP program please contact Susan Hutchings.
Do you have a hard time remembering your giving envelope on Sunday mornings? Maybe you can't make church each week. Would you like to not have to write a check each week? Then electronic giving is the answer for you. Funds can be transferred directly from your checking or savings account to the church account - it can be done weekly, bi-monthly, monthly or quarterly. Only regular offering to the general fund can be done electronically, all special giving must be done manually. it's safe, secure and easy just call the church office and ask for the form to fill out.
