Shop with Scrip

St. Mark participates in the Shop with Scrip program where you buy a gift card for a particular retailer and received the full value of the card.  The Shop with Scrip program will also make sure a portion of that card’s value is given to the church for it’s “Kids2Camp” fund.  The Kids2Camp fund helps with camperships for children and youth attending Riverside Lutheran Bible Camp during the summers.  Scrip cards can be ordered and some are available for purchase after worship.  You can also buy Scrip Cards online.  Please read our Shop with Scrip Guide (.pdf) to set up your online account.
