Scrip

Gift Cards through First United’s Scrip program
Looking for gift cards to give as a gift, eating out or just to use for your own personal shopping (think Amazon, Target, Home Depot, Chipotle, Panera, etc.), then why not purchase then through our Scrip program instead of at the grocery store? For each purchase, FUCA get a percentage of the total purchased (percentages are determined by vendors and differ between vendors)! It is a great and easy way to shop for things you would already purchase and earn money for FUCA a the same time! September’s Scrip order is due Tuesday, September 15 at 9 am. Please send all orders to the church office, either via mail or email. For more information on the program, contact the church office.
