Gift Cards

Don’t forget to purchase Giant, Weis and Karns gift cards to use as you shop for those holiday meals.  Of course, they make great gifts, too. They come in denominations of $25, $50 and $100. The cards can also be used in the pharmacy and for gas. Trinity Church receives 10% for every Giant card we sell and 5% for every Weis and Karns card we sell.  The proceeds are used to help fund our various Benevolence and Mission activities. Cards can be purchased from Charlie Klinger in the Mt. Olivet Room on Sunday mornings at 9:30, or in the church office during the week, between 8:30 and 12:30. Thanks for your participation!
