How You Can Do It: (Top)
Supporting our church ministries as you purchase your weekly or monthly groceries, pharmacy needs, entertainment choices and more is a program we have at FCCV. This is a tried and true program that we have initiated to help with the financial obligations of our growing congregation. This program was recommended by Rocky Hill UCC (check out their website to learn more about their success.)
Gift cards, real cards from selected, popular merchants that have no expiration date, are available. Use them as you would any gift card. No one will know you are helping FCCV.
Gift cards are available in denominations ranging from $10-$100. Each card is sold at face value and is worth that much to you. The good news is that the merchant issuing the card gives the church a percentage of the face value of the card. The percentage is determined by the merchant and ranges from 1% to 16%. More than 260 merchants participate in this program. You lose nothing and the church gains an income.
Orders for cards are taken every Sunday during Coffee Hour or can be ordered and paid for online. All cards must be paid for by cash, check (payable to FCCV, "Scrip" in memo) or PrestoPay (when your on line order is placed). See delivery schedule above. Cards usually may be picked up the Sunday following the placement of the order. Cards to popular places are available weekly as supply allows. See list above.
Check at Coffee Hour for more information. The amount paid for the cards is not a donation to the church, as you receive the full value of the card purchased. More information will be forthcoming, so watch the top of this page, the Sunday bulletins, monthly Carillons or ask Holly Boutwell, Kate Fowler, Martha Fowler at email@example.com or Steve Morse. This is a wonderful way to painlessly raise money for our church while at the same time making life easier for you. Gift cards make excellent gifts.
