To help support Rural Chapel, simply log into your Amazon account through the Smile page and shop regularly.   See below for full details of how to log in and find us, and please let us know if you have any questions!  Thank you for supporting Rural Chapel UMC!

Amazon Smile Instructions.

  1. Go to the following secure website: Amazon Smile or type into your internet browser. (AmazonSmile is also available on your mobile device. See reverse side for full mobile device instructions.)
  2. Follow the prompts to log into your existing Amazon account.
  3. Search for and Select Rural Chapel United Methodist Church as your organization of choice. (Be sure to check that the location is Galena OH to ensure you pick the right organization).
  4. Each time to shop from Amazon, you will need to begin at the Smile page.  The organization will save for future use, but shopping directly through the Amazon site does not offer the same rebate incentives as using Smile.
  5. That’s it!  Each time you shop using the Smile page, 0.5% of eligible purchases will be donated back to Rural Chapel UMC. It may not seem like much from each purchase, but it can really add up!
