E-script Benefits HRLC

Your Christmas Gifts Can Help HRLC!

E-script Benefits HRLC


Holy Redeemer can still receive Scrip commissions on your spending with a wide variety of merchants even though we do not sell the scrip gift cards anymore.

Check out the website: www.Escrip.com 

The website is very helpful in showing you how to create an account for yourself AND how to designate Holy Redeemer Lutheran Church as the recipient of the scrip percentages that merchants contribute.

It does not cost you anything. It is very easy to do. Create an account, and then:

  1. When you decide you are going to buy something online, start off by going to Escrip.com. Search for the merchant you want to buy from. If the company participates in Escrip, you will click on the merchant’s name, and be taken directly to the Merchant’s own website. Then you will shop and put in your order in the usual way. (You can still use coupons and discount codes that you may have for that company.) There are more ways to do it explained on the website.
  2. A small percentage of your purchase will end up being paid to the church.

Give it a try! Remember to use it. Every little bit helps the ministry.

We began a National Geographic Documentary series titled, “The Story of Us” narrated by Morgan Freeman. Morgan Freeman takes viewers on a global journey, meeting with people from different cultures whose lives are shaped in surprising ways, exploring themes that unite us all.

There are a total of seven episodes. Sunday, Nov 11’s episode is titled, The Fight for Peace. It will be shown on Sunday, Nov 11, 2018, 6:30pm at HRLC. A brief discussion with facilitators Pastor Barbara and Dot W follows. All are welcome to join us for all forums.

Episode 3 – The Power of Love– Can love change the world? Morgan Freeman learns how this primal force binds us together.

Episode 4 – Us and Them– Morgan Freeman investigates the forces of fear and intolerance that push us apart.

Episode 5 – The Power of Us– Can we share power so everyone has a say? Morgan Freeman meets Bill Clinton to find out.

Episode 6 – The Rebel Spirit– Morgan meets exiles, whistleblowers and hackers to see what it takes to change the world.
