This is an easy way to give to the Discipleship Ministry Team and it won’t cost you ANYTHING extra.
The Discipleship Ministry Team continues to look for new ways to help financially support the ministries it offers, one of the most recent discoveries is through AmazonSmile. Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases to the charitable organization of your choice. Sometimes this percentage goes up on special occasions or promotions Amazon has. This may not sound like a lot, BUT if we ALL choose Ministry Council of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church as our charity of choice it could go a long way.
First-time users, how do you do this?
- Go to smile.amazon.com log into your Amazon account. If you already have an Amazon account use your same credentials/login username and password. If you do not have an Amazon account you can create one if you’d like to start using the site.
- Once Logged in, hover your mouse over the button that says “Your Account” and a drop-down menu will appear.
- In the drop-down menu choose “Change Charity”.
- This screen will ask you to choose one of the Spotlight Charities and below this, there is an option to “Choose your own charitable organization”. In the search box type “Ministry Council of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church”. Then click on “Select”
