GoodNews, the Shop@Christ Church will be closed for summer renovations beginning at Noon on Sunday, June 1 at Noon. Please watch for details about our grand re-opening in September!
GoodNews, the Shop@Christ Church is a mission of the Episcopal Church Women of Christ Church. As a private, nonprofit organization, the Shop donates all of its sales proceeds toward grants to worthy nonprofit initiatives focused on the needs of women and children in the local community and abroad. GoodNews' main objective is to maximize profits in order to fund these initiatives. In its 39-year-old history, it has donated over $500,000 to outreach programs. The Shop also serves as a ministry devoted to building community and fellowship and providing resources for programs at Christ Church.
Nestled inside Christ Church, GoodNews, the Shop@Christ Church is adorned with ideal gifts for Christmas, birthdays and special events including Baptisms, Confirmation and graduations. We offer free gift wrapping, so this really is the place for your one-stop shopping! The most rewarding attribute about this shop is that 100% of proceeds go back into the community, which is so needed in today's economy. We proudly feature books, cards, candles, lotions, jewelry, handbags, hats, decorative pillows, baby and children gifts, tabletop accessories, men's accessories, crosses, paper products, linens, food items and kitchen accessories. Please remember us first when you shop for that next gift.
