Amazon Smiles

Prime Time Pilgrims

"Another way to contribute to our church:


Did you know that Amazon has a special program set up to help non-profits such as our church? The program is called Amazon Smile. A percentage of all of your Amazon purchases will go to the church. It is easy to sign up, especially if you already have an Amazon account.


In the website address line type in Find the search window and type in First Congregational Church of Escondido. Our name has to be typed in exactly as written in the last sentence. Then follow the prompts and set up your own account. Remember to always go to the Amazon Smile website first to log in when you make a purchase on-line. A good idea would be to set the address in your favorites.


Many thanks to Barb Galyean for taking the time to go through the circuitous process to get our church listed on the Amazon Smile program. If you have any questions, ask Jo Anne in the office.”
