AmazonSmile & Other Ways to Support MHCUCC

Middleburg Heights Community UCC is a vibrantly active church, and between maintaining a building that hosts so many events, groups, and service projects and having a staff to support this engaged congregation, along with all the resources and needs these things entail, our faith family must be creative to keep the bills paid and provide for our future. That happens in a variety of ways, many of them aligned with the activities and needs of each of us, such as shopping and eating.

Gift Cards

120     $25     4%     $120     $1,440     $6,240

Hopefully you are asking yourself – what do all these numbers mean? It is very simple; right now these numbers represent lost income for our church. They also represent how easy it is for MHCC to earn money from our gift card program.

Our attendance for an average Sunday is 120 families. If each family purchased one $25 gift card to Giant Eagle, the church would earn $120 of profit (4%). If we made the same purchases once per month, MHCC would earn $1,440. And if we purchased once per week, MHCC would earn $6,240!

Certainly the majority of us shop for groceries each week, but there are many more gift cards available. Take a look at the extensive list which is available every week in the parlor area.



One of the programs our team has recently begun is connecting our 501(c)3 charitable status as a church with the AmazonSmile program. AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to MHCUCC at no extra cost to you. All you have to do is follow this link and bookmark it so you can easily find it again when you go to shop online!

Dining for Dollar$

Every month, we have partnered with a restaurant to set a day and time period when, with the presentation of a coupon, a percentage of your meal purchase will become a donation to the church. From places like Baker’s Square to Burger King to Blue Jade, local restaurants are sharing your generosity to support our General Fund. To stay updated on the next Dining for Dollar$ event, we recommend signing up for our weekly email newsletter, the Good News.
