This week's discussion material is Rev. Sollie's paper "Jenkin Lloyd Jones and Evolution" and can be found here.

Please do your very best to read the source material before you join the discussion. Conversation is richer if we have a shared framework. Each discussion is independent--so attend as you are able. Conversation will also be richer as we build relationships, deepen trust, and connect the dots, so attend as often as you are able.

 

 

SCRIP FUNDRAISER

There's a great video "how to" here

The way Scrip works is you buy what is essentially a gift card for face value and the company you buy it from donates to the Fellowship--depending on the company, 2-16%. So let's say you buy a $50 card from the Toe Ring Emporium. You can then use the card to buy $50 dollars worth of cunning toe rings. The Toe Ring Emporium will then donate a portion of the sale to the Fellowship. The beauty of the system is that it raises money on things you were going to buy anyway. 

The challenge is to go online and learn how to do it and then plan ahead and buy the cards. The advantage is that if you think about other fundraisers we have had, this is a pretty light amount of work--no heavy lifting, no greasy clean up, no committee meetings. Another advantage is the donations come from outside--so not out of your pocket. A third advantage is that you spend the money to get scrip and that hurts, but then when you go to buy something that pain has faded and you feel you have actual gift cards--good deal!

So what happens now?

Contact the office and Marcy will send you an e-mail invitation and you just follow the three step instructions and you're set! Rev. Sollie did it in less than five minutes. She did say that a screen popped up that made it seem like you needed to link your bank account, but that is optional. Although it looks like there will be a small fee if you use a credit card to pay. Do what you are comfortable with. You can choose a physical card (that means they come to Marcy and she has to track you down), an electronic card or in some cases, you can refill a card. Start small and learn the system.  We don't have many fundraising options right now and we have dreams to fund.  We hope you will take advantage of this fundraiser.
