THANK YOU JCS COMMUNITY!

Donors were actively giving until midnight! JCS received $12,930 in new gifts yesterday, blessing the students at JCS with $25,860 to meet needs and share Christ with them in the 2020-2021 school year! Donations toward the remainder of the $25,000 matching gift ($12,070) will be accepted until December 31. Thank you again for your continued support of Jenison Christian School!

As before, all orders MUST be preordered. TRIP has dwindled down its inventory and gift cards are now being ordered on an as needed basis. Pick ups will be offered ONLY on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-7:00 PM as volunteers and parents are not able to be in the school building during school hours.

If you have an online TRIP account, we would encourage you to order your TRIP cards via the online ordering system. You can pay for your order via PrestoPay, with your credit card or with a check at pick up. Online ordering has a huge selection of businesses and denominations. If you don’t have an online TRIP account, please email your order to JCS Trip at trip@jenisonchristian.org and your money will be collected when you pick up your order.  As a reminder, we will NOT be able to fulfill any orders at pick up. ALL ORDERS ARE PREORDERED.
