Looking for an Ideal Gift


Buy a Gift Certificate from the church office or Pastor Bev for a specific upcoming church Fund Raiser event to give to someone! What better gift is that?!? The recipient & the church both receive gifts!


The First United Methodist Church of Durand participates in an ongoing fundraiser called SCRIPT. This is a program of buying cash cards from a business, a set percentage of the card’s value is given to our church. The amount donated varies according to the retailer. There are no fees or costs of any kind to those buying the cards. The cards are like the gift cards you may have purchased in the past. For example, you may have given an Applebee’s card or a Speedway gas card as a gift. They are simply a convenient, cash-free way of making purchases and donating to our church. For example, if you purchase a $25 Speedway gas card, you will pay $25 and you will get the full $25 to spend on gas.

The coordinators for this fundraiser are Laura Alderman and Carol Mose. They will take the orders and payment, tally the orders, and send them to the Great Lakes Script Center. Orders are filled the next day and will  be ready for you the following Sunday.

You may choose to place your order by filling out a form which you can obtain through Laura or Carol or you may place your order online. You can create your own account by following these steps:
