Still not using Scrip?  

Our scrip program gives parents and family members the power to fundraise all the time, without doing anything more than using scrip gift cards to pay for their everyday shopping. You don’t have to spend money on things you don’t need or sell anything to friends and relatives. 

Other benefits of using Scrip:

Scrip gift cards are perfect for following a household budget, families can shop both in-store or online with participating retailers, Scrip gift cards are just like using a credit/debit card but without the fraud risk and Scrip program earnings are greater than credit card rewards (typically 3 – 15%).  If you are not signed up for Scrip yet please talk to a coordinator and get started!  If you are signed up keep ordering!  Scrip shines when families use it for as much of their shopping as they can!

Barnabas Foundation: Barnabas Foundation provides guidance and assistance to Christians in the area of stewardship.  It is not only for financial planning after death, but for all ages and generations to help them grow in their understanding of biblical stewardship and experience the joy of living a generous, giving life. Stewardship of our personal resources is an important biblical principle for all believers regardless of economic status or age. For those more seasoned in life, Barnabas Foundation can help maximize your financial contributions and minimize resources lost to taxation.  For beginning families, sitting down with Barnabas will begin to get you thinking about your financial and family plan if, in God’s providential plan, something were to happen to your family.
