In addition, once a household member enrolls the card, all linked Kroger Plus Cards within the household will begin earning funds.

     Your fuel point balance will not be affected by enrolling in the Kroger Community Rewards program. More information is available in the church office.

Cookbook Corrections:  Corrections for the cookbook we sold a while back, "Feeding the Flock," are as follows...
 
     Recipe correctionpage 41 - Bob's Baked Beef Stew - half the ingredients were somehow left out of the printing.  Please add the following to Bob's recipe: 1/2 tsp. pepper (or less), 5 T flour, 1 tsp. sugar, 3 to 4 cups V-8 juice, and 3/4 cup burgundy or heavy dark wine.
     Recipe correction:  page 126 - Chocolate Eclair Cake - the Cool Whip ingredient  should read 1 containter (8-oz) Cool Whip.
     Recipe correction:  page 81 - Chicken Pot Pie in Puff Pastry - add 1 can cream of chicken soup to ingredients.

In the HospitalRead This!
    
     A Federal Law prohibits the disclosure of patient information by hospitals.  As a result, the church office or pastor may not know the status of a church member. 
     If you are hospitalized and would like for the pastor to be aware of your situation, please call the church.  (If you do not wish us to announce to the congregation that you are ill, please let us know that as well.)

LITTLE  EFFORT - BIG REWARDS

 

     The Youth of Beckley Presbyterian Church have been implementing a Kroger Gift Card Fundraising Program which is a just phenomenal. It is so very simple, yet so very prosperous. 

 

     New >> Recently, Kroger changed their Kroger Cares Program to Kroger Community Rewards. Instead of using the Kroger Gift Card you purchased through the church, you now use your Kroger Plus Card for this program. Beckley Presbyterian Church has enrolled in this new program. However, YOU must also enroll your Kroger Plus Card in order for BPC to receive funds.

    

     It's very simple. Visit Kroger's secure website: www.kroger.com/communityrewards to enroll your individual Kroger Plus Card to BPC. In addition, once a household member enrolls the card, all linked Kroger Plus Cards within the household will begin earning funds.  Your fuel point balance will not be affected by enrolling in the Kroger Community Rewards program. More information is available in the church office.

    

     Each time you use your Kroger Plus Card for your purchases, the total amount of your purchase will be recorded in the Beckley Presbyterian Youth account.  Then, each time $5,000 has been raised, Kroger will send a check for 5% of that total.  The 5% can become quite substantial over a period of time especially if numerous folks have enrolled and are using their Plus Cards.
