Let everyday spending work for you!

Available every Sunday, you have a chance to purchase SCRIP CARDS at Crete United Methodist Church.  There is a table in the church's lobby on Sundays, between services for you to place your order.  The orders are placed upon purchase and are available for you to pick up on the following Sunday and are ready for use.  You will pay full face value on each card and  Crete UMC will receive an immediate rebate percentage from your purchase of each SCRIP CARD.  The percentage of savings typically starts between 3-4% upto 12 % depending on the card's retailer.


SCRIP CARDS are easy to use and make great gifts for any occasion. 

Examples of how SCRIP GIFT CARDS savings can add up!

*  by paying for your weekly fuel purchases

*  by using them as gifts for family and friends

Whether you are sending your college student off for their freshman year or their final year, college students LOVE to get care packages.  And by sending them off to school with SCRIP CARDS, they receive a care package and you at the same time help support Crete United Methodist Church.
