FPC Rockaway has done fundraising with Scrip gift cards for years but never this fast and easy! Now you can print gift cards at home on your own printer or download cards to your phone within minutes! No more placing orders and waiting two weeks for delivery. Imagine this…you decide you want to go out to eat at Olive Garden. Simply go to your computer, print out a card or download it to your phone. Enjoy your meal out and pay with your gift card. It’s quick and easy and the church receives a percentage of your gift card purchase. It’s a win, win, situation! Now imagine this…you’re out on a Saturday running errands. You realize you need to pick up some gardening tools at Home Depot. Simply go to the ShopWithScrip website on your phone, download a gift card and you’re good to go! Scrip gift cards are an easy way for the church to make money to continue our ministries in the community. The profit the church receives comes from the vendor; you pay nothing extra. To be a part of this fundraiser, you will need to sign up. Please contact, Diane Knipper at firstname.lastname@example.org or 973-495-9312 for more information. Below are just a few of the hundreds of vendors that take part in this program. For more info on vendors go to www.shopwithscrip.com.
2018 Historical Cemetery Walk
The weather cooperated and brought sunshine, although some pretty strong wind on Saturday, November 3rd for the Historical Cemetery Walk. On hand were the Historical committees of Rockaway Borough and Rockaway Township as well as the DAR (Daughters of the America Revolution) to share information about their organizations. We featured a new portrayal this year of FPC’s own Edward (Bud) Evans, WWII aircraft radio operator, along with our other popular portrayals. We also had a blacksmith with us who demonstrated metalworking The Stewardship committee served homemade meatball sandwiches, hotdogs, snacks and beverages. Thanks to all who worked hard to make this event happen, including students from the Morris Knolls High School History Honor Society and thanks to those who came out and supported us.
