GoodNews Shop

Shop with purpose.

GoodNews, the Shop@Christ Church is a mission of the Episcopal Church Women (ECW) at Christ Church. We proudly feature books, cards, candles, lotions, jewelry, handbags, decorative pillows, baby and children gifts, tabletop accessories, men's accessories, crosses, paper products, linens, food items, and kitchen accessories. We offer free gift wrapping too! Please think of us first when you shop for gifts for all occasions.

As a private, nonprofit organization, the Shop donates all of its sales proceeds in the form of grants to worthy nonprofit initiatives, especially focused on the needs of women and children in the local community and abroad. In its 40-year history, GoodNews has funded grants totaling well over $1,000,000. The Shop is also a ministry that builds community and supplies books and other resources for Christ Church programs.


Homemade casseroles, soups, and desserts from the GoodNews freezer are bestsellers in our shop. Every recipe has been created and tested by church members, including some from our Christ Church Cookbook.

Each Tuesday and Wednesday volunteers meet in the Church kitchen to prepare these delicious offerings that stock our freezer. If you enjoy prepping, cooking, and packaging in the kitchen, consider volunteering with us once a month for two hours, or as often as you like. It's a wonderful opportunity for fellowship! Contact Jane Coulter at   to learn more.
