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.
