Getting Involved

Scrip Gift Cards

Scrip is retail fundraising. You earn funds for The Met without any addition. The more members and friends of The Met who use Scrip Gift Cards the more we earn to support the ministries of The Met. Even using Scrip Gift Cards in small amounts makes a big difference when added with other small amounts.

Stop by the Bookstore-Scrip Center to learn how you can participate in this fundraising activity or send questions to And check out all the great books and other gift items at our Bookstore!

Here is a list of eScrip Retailers that supported the church last year. With eScrip, you register your debit and/or credit cards, designate the church, and a portion of your purchase at participating restaurants and retailers comes back to the church without costing you a penny extra! Stop in our Bookstore for details.

eScrip has partnered with SSA Stores to offer a new way to earn money for The Met® thru an online shop that provides branded custom apparel and more! We earn 12% on sales at this site. Visit the store via the link for the preferred name, The Met Church or MCC San Diego.
