POP "Play Our Praises"

 

Children ages 3 years through third grade have their own worship session during part of Sunday morning Worship. Please invite children to attend this exciting praise opportunity.

 

ScripCents

 

Scrip refers to gift certificates, or gift cards. Our ScripCents program provides cards from HUNDREDS of merchants nationwide at a discount for us to sell at face value. The difference is VUMC's profit.

By ordering ScripCents, not only are you spared from becoming salespeople for a fundraiser, you do not have to purchase any items that you don't want or need. Simply order gift cards and use them for what you normally buy - like groceries, restaurants, books, clothes etc. So, no more peeler cards, gift wrap and chocolate candy bars! By using same-as-cash scrip certificates to make your normal purchases, you do not need to spend any extra money, AND VUMC earns a percentage from every purchase you make!
