GoodNews The Shop@Christ Church
The Good News Shop 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. The Good News Shop's main objective is to maximize profits in order to fund these initiatives. In its 34-year-old history, it has donated $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, The Good News Shop 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.
GoodNews the shop@Christ Church is pleased to present our new selection of glassware displaying the Christ Church emblem! With a variety of tumblers including 12oz, 16oz and 24oz glasses, and 17oz mugs, these items are the perfect gifts for long-standing and new members, teacher, staff appreciation mementos and more! We are also featuring a wonderful Bridge Table with everything from ACBS Bridge Series books, Bridge at a Glance Quick Reference Guides to beautifully designed (and easy to read) playing cards and score pads. Put these two together for a winning hand and support the local community at the same time!
