Return to Support Cross of Glory

Scrip Ministry – Gift Cards, ScripNow®, and eCards

Why Do We Sell Gift Cards?

Great Lakes Script Company (GLSC) is a fundraising program where you purchase gift cards at face value and Cross  of  Glory  receives  a  percentage from each gift card. The money raised goes to support the mission and ministry of Cross of Glory.  There are cards for everyday and special occasion  purchases.  You can put your everyday shopping dollars to work and support CoG without spending additional money.

There are over 700 vendors. You can view the Vendor List on the CrossofGlory.com website.

How Does the Program Work?

There are different ways to order gift cards and scrip or to reload gift cards you already have. Select the option that works best for you.

  1. Order Gift Cards from Scrip Coordinator (Cheryl Nabors)
    1. During COVID restrictions (Not meeting at church). Send an email to Cheryl Nabors with a list of cards you want to purchase. The cards should be delivered within a week. When delivered, talk to Cheryl to arrange delivery and payment pay by check or cash.
    2. No COVID restrictions (Meeting at church). Give your order to Cheryl Nabors along with a check or cash. The cards can be picked up at church the following week.
      (See Vendor List on CrossofGlory.com website.
  2. Sign up with Cross of Glory at ShopWithScrip.com. After you setup an account, you can place orders online. This option offers two different payment methods.
    1. You can have funds taken from your bank account
    2. Give the Scrip Coordinator (Cheryl Nabors) a check for the cards.

Gift cards are added to the next CoG card order. Most Scrip and Card Reloads are sent immediately or within 24 hours. Please see Cheryl Nabors for additional information.

Below is a one month example of how your gift card purchases contribute to the ministries at Cross of Glory.
