Our next Pizza & Presentation Night will be Sunday, March 23 at 5:00 p.m. We’ll have a silent auction, and we’re looking for donations. Could you donate new or like-new items, please? Marilyn Phillips and the North Dakota mission team will lead the program. Proceeds will benefit our North Dakota Mission Team.
Integrys Energy is the new supplier of natural gas for the church and parsonage. Based on 2012 rates, the church would have saved $600 had we been with Integrys rather than DTE. Any church member living in Michigan is eligible for the Integrys rates through the Dickinson Area Partnership. Any church member switching to Integrys can have $25 per year donated by Integrys to the church. You can access information on switching to Integrys online at www.integrysenergy.com/dap.
The United Methodist Church, in partnership with major online retailers, has created a shopping portal, UMCmarket.org, that gives your church a 1 to 9 percent commission for purchases made by members of your church. They can donate to your church also by booking travel, hotel rooms, and car rentals. Many consumers prefer shopping online because it saves time and gasoline, avoids crowds, provides more variety, and it’s easy to do. More than 80 percent of the online population has bought something on the Internet. In fact, it’s so popular that e-commerce sales in the US amounted to $289 billion last year.
All shoppers have to do is create an account & buy products & merchandise from partner retailers through UMCmarket.org. There’s no increased cost or hidden fees. They buy items for the same prices they would pay on those retailers’ sites.
It’s as simple as 1-2-3. Here’s how:
1. Visit UMCmarket.org & create an account. During the account setup, you will be asked to designate a beneficiary church (Iron Mountain Trinity) to which the commission for your purchases will go.
2. After you are set up, log in to UMCmarket (or to make the process even more simple, use the free downloadable add-on for your Web browser) & shop at the partner retailers.
3. There is no step three! Unless you count the church receiving a check from UMCmarket as a step.
