"Clipping for a Cause" Donation: 71 Items Purchased for 25 Cents!!!!

Last night, the "Clipping for a Cause" ministry met at FUMC. My very good friends Kellie and Jason lead the class every 4th Wednesday. How exciting it was to see the volunteers come in, eager to clip away! Not only that, but the amount of coupon inserts donated by fellow congregation members was unreal! Already, the binders we have to organize each week's coupons are filling up fast. I felt like I had gotten a good workout after picking them up and putting them back in the cabinet! Combined with the overwhelming response to help, the donated coupons, and especially today's shopping experience, there is no doubt that God has great things planned for this ministry to others.

I had two separate transactions as I wasn't aware that ALL Birdseye Frozen Veggies were on sale including Steamfresh. So here is everything included in the two trips:

  1. Heather, this is just amazing! When I was at the co-op yesterday Laura pulled this up and showed it to me. How incredible! God is so good, and I am so excited for you and your ministry--this is great stuff! Can't wait to get a chance to chat with you and compare notes.

  2. That is one lovely picture!

  3. The Lord put a vision of like this on my heart around six months ago for the Charlotte area. It is amazing to see what He is doing. I am interested on more information on coupon clipping parties. Anything you can share? I loved the idea and hadn't heard of it until the other day.

    To God be the Glory,
