St. John Youth Fundraising Activities
Youth from St. John have started a couple of ongoing fundraising ventures to help cover expenses related to Lutheran Island Camp tuition and the upcoming National Youth Gathering. Scrip gift cards are available for purchase as well as candy bars from The World's Finest Chocolate. The youth receive a rebate from each gift card sold and a percentage of the cost of each candy bar.
St. John Youth look over the array of delicious candy bars they have for sale after the Sunday service.
When you purchase a gift card from the youth scrip program, the merchant returns a portion of the money spent to the youth of St. John. This is a marvelous way to support our youth programs at no extra cost to the purchaser!
