The Rewards Program
A Way to Supplement Your Giving
In addition to your regular, biblically-based giving, you can direct more money to the church without spending any extra money! The program is called the Great Lakes Scrip Program but we call it simply “The Rewards Program”.
How does it work?
You purchase gift cards from the church that can be used at the places you regularly shop at for food, clothing, gas, and more. The church receives a percentage of the sale from 2% to 15%, depending on the retailer.
What’s the catch?
If there is one, it is that you must purchase these items in advance. You can buy a $25 or $50 card for say, Speedway gas station, and then use it at the pump. You lose nothing but the church gains something.
Find Out More
Click here to see the current list of participating retailers. The list also shows the available dollar amount of the cards and the percentage that goes to the church. In addition to the retailers that participate through Great Lakes Scrip, we also have several local merchants that participate including Big O Tires, Cynthia’s Hallmark, Kroger, and Marsh. You can print out the list and make your selections. Then email your request to St. James’ Scrip Coordinator, Cindy Gregory at firstname.lastname@example.org or bring it to church with you on Sunday and drop it off at the Rewards Table in the narthex. They make great gifts. Put your shopping dollars to work for St. James!
