Matthew 6:19-21 "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Divine Dollar$ is a funds generating program run by Great Lakes Scrip for non profit and educational institutions. This gift card program offered weekly was originally started at St. Mark in June of 2005. St. Mark purchases gift cards from vendors at a selected discount and sells them to our members (or any one else) for face value. The buyer then uses the cards just like a gift card at the store for full face value. The cost to our users is $0.00! The church generates proceeds in the program from the vendor's offered discount to us on each gift card sold.
You can order cards from virtually any vendor on the list of thousands. This includes everyday items like gas and food to once in a life time purchases of Cruise tickets, airlines, Disney World, etcetera. If you order cards, they will be at the Church for you to pick up the following Sunday. Over 30 of the most common items are kept in stock so they can be purchased on site (Sunday's only). The Cash and Carry List can be accessed by clicking on the link below).
Please feel free to stop by the Divine Dollar$ table on Sunday in the Narthex for information or a list of all the vendors. It's easy and it doesn't cost you anything.
