St. Michael’s supports a variety of outreach ministries, both in our community and in the world.
St. Michael’s receives money for our Outreach efforts from Kroger Community Rewards. The church receives an amount based on total purchases from people who have signed up to support St. Michael’s. Visit the Kroger Community Rewards page for more details. If you’re uncertain if you are enrolled in this program, check the bottom of your Kroger receipt; if you are enrolled, it will say “At your request, Kroger is donating to St. Michael’s Episcopal Church.”
