SUPERIOR, Wisc.––Each July, Faith UMC and Harbor House Crisis Shelters host a “Wildfire! Youth Mission Event” to welcome youth from around the region who will be engaged in mission work in the area. The goal is for Christian holiness to spread like wildfire throughout the region.
The Rev. Joel Certa-Werner, pastor and director of the mission work, says they previously purchased some $10,000 in supplies and equipment at Menards because the store in Superior gave them an 11 percent discount.
“When we learned Home Depot is willing to donate a portion of purchases to help the Strength for Service devotional, we decided to drive the extra distance, forego the 11% rebate from Menards, and make the bulk of our purchases through Home Depot,” says Certa-Werner. “By doing so lives can be reached and blessed.”
Certa-Werner says the process was simple. “All we had to do was register the church credit cards with Home Depot, and now, whenever we use those cards at Home Depot, a portion of what we spend automatically goes to Strength for Service. It doesn’t cost us anything! This is truly a win-win situation. We are very pleased and would strongly encourage every United Methodist entity to register through Home Depot.”
