mannaAn opportunity for LGCC to earn additional income by shopping with the retailers & vendors that you already shop with.  You are able to purchase gift cards to use for yourself or gift to others with hundreds of retailers, restaurants and websites (including: Heinen's Grocery Store, Pinkberry, Kohl's, Oriental Trading and so many others).  You can either view and print this order form here  or pick one up at the information table.   You can place your order using cash or checks payable to LGCC (Manna in the memo line) at the information table before or after Sunday service.  We also, however, have the ability to offer folks the flexibility of paying directly from their checking accounts if folks want access to the gift cards immediately on their smart phones.  Due to the order volume, we will now accept orders only on the second Sunday of the month.  If you have any questions please see Cindy Disndy-Gainey or Alan Blankshain.
