Greenbacks!



The Greenbacks program alive and well at GVUMC!
Cards are available right now!
To purchase and collect gift cards,
please contact Marion Harvey
(702)-493-5408


The Greenbacks program sells gift cards for a variety of stores and restaurants. Great Lakes Scrip Center is the company from which we purchase the gift cards. The gift cards are purchased at a discount from 2% to as much as 15%. The discount is earned by our program before the card is sold at face value. Greenbacks maintains a wide selection of gift cards to 55 retailers, restaurants and grocery stores.  However, Great Lakes Scrip Center maintains over 680 stores, restaurants and services including hotels and gas stations which are available for special orders just by requesting them.
 
The Greenbacks’ program is successful because of the involvement of everyone who has ever purchased a card. This is truly “the fund raiser that does not cost you money” since you will be purchasing groceries, going to restaurants, buying gifts or improving your home, etc, with or without the cards.
Since 1997 when the program was started with only grocery gift certificates, the program has been able to provide over $24,000 toward its stated mission to designate its profits for new and existing building maintenance and/or furnishings not included in the Church budget. 

The philosophy of Greenbacks is that everything we have is a gift from God. We should use His gracious gifts wisely - it's all about good stewardship of the resources that God has given you!

The Dance of Deception 



The stories we find in the Bible have so much to teach us about God, about how God desires for us living in harmony with our neighbors and yet often these stories are difficult ones to read.
For the last few Sundays I have been sharing my favorite Bible stories with you; this Sunday I will tell you a story from the Old Testament that actually causes me to cringe every time I hear it referred to or it comes up in my reading. God desires for us to be our brother's keeper, Sunday we will learn how two brothers were not so kind to one another. I wonder what you will learn from this Sunday's story and I would love to hear which Bible Story is your least favorite. (by the way, thank you so much for sending in your favorite Bible verses last week) 


This Weeks Scripture Verse

Genesis 25:24-34

When [Rebekah’s] time to give birth came, sure enough, there were twins in her womb. The first came out reddish, as if snugly wrapped in a hairy blanket; they named him Esau (meaning Hairy). His brother followed, his fist clutched tight to Esau’s heel; they named him Jacob (meaning Heel). Isaac, their father was sixty years old when they were born. The boys grew up. Esau became an expert hunter, an outdoorsman. Jacob was a quiet man preferring life indoors among the tents. Isaac loved Esau because he loved his game, but Rebekah loved Jacob. One day Jacob was cooking a stew. Esau came in from the field, starved. Esau said to Jacob, “Give me some of that red stew— I’m starved!” Jacob said, “Make me a trade: my stew for your rights as the first- born.” Esau said, “I’m starving! What good is a birthright if I’m dead?” Jacob said, “First, swear to me.” And he did it. On oath Esau traded away his rights as the firstborn. Jacob gave him bread and the stew of lentils. He ate and drank, got up and left. That’s how Esau shrugged off his rights as the firstborn.
