The Greater Nashville Church participates in charitable giving programs through Kroger and Amazon Smile. These are opportunities for the church to receive contributions from these businesses based on your normal spending with these companies. But you need to let them know that GNC is your preferred charitable organization.
Kroger – You must have a Kroger Plus card/account. Log in to your account online (you may have to register first). Go to Community Rewards on the left menu about halfway down the page. The GNC organization number is WM542. Be sure to re-enroll in this program at least annually.
Amazon Smile – You must have an Amazon account to participate in this program. To enroll, go to smile.amazon.com and login to your Amazon account as you normally would. You should see the link at the top of the page, just under the search bar, that will allow you to select a charity. Click on the link and search for our name, Greater Nashville Church.
If we all participate in these programs, it would likely result in a few thousand dollars of additional revenue each year.
This would be a great way to help cover the cost of the new playground for our children’s ministry in 2020!
Please contact Nathan Rowe (615.596.6748) with any questions.
Please email all announcements and prayer requests to email@example.com by Wednesday of each week to ensure they make it into that week’s Newsletter. If we are unable to get your requests in that week’s Newsletter, we will include them next week.
If you do not have access to email, you can write down your announcement and put it under the church office door.
NOTE: We need regular updates to your prayer requests to keep them in the Newsletter
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. 1 John 3:16
