Leave Your LEGACY at VUMC!

Have you visited the hallway leading to the Family Life Center (VUMC's gym) lately?! A beautiful tile mosaic has been started! Each tile has been carefully hand-painted by volunteers in the congregation.

Anyone can be a part of this exciting Fundraising Project to help defray the cost of our Building Loan.

Order a tile TODAY! What a great way to remember a person, date, or event. OR... use a tile as a way to share your love of God! The tiles make great gifts for birthdays, weddings, baptisms, etc!

We will continue this project until the wall is FILLED!

If you would like to help contribute to a collection to buy tiles to honor the many great members of VUMC who have passed away in the past 10-15 years that had a vital part in the building addition, but there is no one left to buy a tile for them, look for the special marked "Tokens for Tiles" envelops in the pews.

Scrip Cents
Scrip refers to gift certificates, or gift cards. Our ScripCents program provides cards from HUNDREDS of merchants nationwide at a discount for us to sell at face value. The difference is VUMC's profit. 
By ordering ScripCents, not only are you spared from becoming salespeople for a fundraiser, you do not have to purchase any items that you don't want or need. Simply order gift cards and use them for what you normally buy - like groceries, restaurants, books, clothes etc. So, no more peeler cards, gift wrap and chocolate candy bars! By using same-as-cash scrip certificates to make your normal purchases, you do not need to spend any extra money, AND VUMC earns a percentage from every purchase you make!

For a Print Order Form click HERE.

See a COMPLETE list of merchants you can order from HERE.

Order will be placed on 1st and 15th on the month. The order usually arrived within a couple of days. The cards are easy to use. They are great for everyday purchases, a special occasion or even a weekend away. The church receives a percentage of each card purchased. Order forms are available at the Welcome Center.

pprcMany of you may not realize that there is a place to take your concerns, your suggestions, your praises, and your thoughts about the way the Church is being led. That is the function of the Pastor Parish Relations Committee, the PPRC. It is our function to help the Pastor fulfill his Shepherd’s role in caring, leading, and guiding the membership in the way the Church Council, and even more importantly God, wishes us to go.

Please feel free to make your thoughts known to any of our members in addition to the two listed above: Matt Fulton; Annelore Cannizzaro; Carol Lohman; Audrey Linebaugh; Rachel Freeman
