BiblesBibles For All Students 

Does your child have an age appropriate Bible?

The preschool – 1st grade class use The Beginners Bible.

The 2nd -5th grade class use the Super Heroes Bible (NIrV).

If your child needs a Bible please sign up to receive a Bible with your Sunday school teacher. Donations are welcomed (but not required) to offset the cost of the Bibles. Our goal is to have each child bring their Bibles to church each Sunday and to have the Bible available for family study during the week.


SCRIP Program

Do you shop at local grocery stores?

Believe it or not, many local grocery stores will direct a percentage of your purchase to Chandler United Methodist Church. You can support the Sunday school, youth ministry, youth camping, Christian education and much more and it won’t cost you a dime.

We are starting with the following grocery stores:

Bashas’ (which includes AJ’s & Food City)


You can support the Christian Education Ministry at Chandler UMC and it will not cost you a dime…

Here is how you can help:

Step 1: Purchase a reusable gift card at the SCRIP Table in the fellowship area.

The cards are linked to the Chandler UMC account therefore all cards must be purchased from Chandler UMC

Cards are purchased for current value of the card.

Bashas’ card starting value = $5

Step 2: Use the card like cash to make your purchases.

Step 3: When funds on the card run out, add money to the gift card at the cashier or Customer Service desk PRIOR to checking out. Cards can be re-loaded for any amount up to $500.
It’s really simple to support the Chandler UMC ministries using the SCRIP program.

Here is an example of the possible funds from the program:

Twenty families use a Bashas’ gift card and spend $300 per month on groceries.
Bashas will send Chandler UMC 6% of all purchases made with the gift card.
20 families x $300 in grocery per month x 12 months = $4,320 check to Chandler UMC to support our ministries.

Add in future additional stores and gift card options and this could be a great source of funding.

We’ll be happy to answer any questions you have at the SCRIP table or contact Steve Gregory.

Thank you for your support!
