Introducing a First-Ever Event: Cheese Toast Month at Sizzler

For the very first time, we are thrilled to announce Cheese Toast Month at Sizzler this September! When you indulge in a mouthwatering Cheese Toast Sandwich meal at the Sizzler on Plaza Drive in Oceanside, you’re not only treating your taste buds but also supporting a fantastic cause within our community.

Throughout September, our church, UMC Vista, will receive a generous donation of between $6 and $7 for every Cheese Toast Sandwich meal sold, with the potential to raise up to $2,000! You can enjoy this exclusive offer any day of the month, and the best part is, there’s no need for a flyer – simply order your meal and savor the goodness.

Sizzler has selected us as the beneficiary for this groundbreaking inaugural event, and your support can help us make significant strides in closing our budget deficit. So, come relish the flavor of Cheese Toast Month at Sizzler, and be a part of something truly special for our community. Thank you for your support!



What is Scrip?

Scrip is a fundraising initiative that harnesses the power of everyday purchases. It involves purchasing gift cards or certificates from popular retailers, such as grocery stores, restaurants, gas stations, and online platforms. These gift cards carry their full face value, meaning you can use them for your personal shopping or gift-giving needs. 

How does it work?

  1. Purchase: You can buy gift cards from our organization or at the Scrip Table before or after our Sunday service. These gift cards are available for a variety of retailers.

  2. Retailer Rebates: When you purchase a gift card through our Scrip Program, a percentage of the card’s value is donated back to our organization by the participating retailer. This rebate can range from a small percentage to a more significant amount, depending on the retailer.

  3. Fundraising Impact: The rebates we receive through the Scrip Program directly contribute to our organization’s financial goals. The funds generated help us support our programs, initiatives, and community projects, enabling us to make a positive impact in the lives of those we serve.

How can you get involved?

Participating in our Scrip Program is easy:

  1. Browse Retailers: Take a look at our list of participating retailers and the available gift cards. See our Scrip Table after service for more information and to sign up for email notifications about new opportunities to support your church!

  2. Purchase: Consider buying gift cards for special events through our church.

  3. Enjoy Shopping: Use the gift cards for your regular shopping or gift-giving. You get the full value of the gift cards you purchased.

  4. Support our Cause: Through your everyday purchases, you are directly supporting our organization’s mission and helping us make a difference.

We are incredibly grateful for your participation in our Scrip Program. Your ongoing support through this program empowers us to continue our important work and positively impact the lives of those we serve.
