Annual Stewardship Campaign

Annual giving opens the doors to our spiritual home by funding over 98% of our annual operating budget. The stewardship campaign begins each fall and continues into February when the Vestry votes on the budget. Each household is invited to make a pledge, to be fulfilled through financial gifts in the coming year.

Signing in is NOT required, but allows you to create a secure account through which you can set up recurring payments, schedule future payments, and manage your own transactions. Your profile information will be stored securely for online registration and payment forms in the future. Give online here.

Giving is now even easier with the Christ Church Charlotte app. Tap the Giving icon in the menu, and follow the prompts. After the first gift, no further set-up is required. Just tap and give! You can also schedule recurring gifts, view your history, and edit your account details in the app.

Memorials & Honoraria

A gift to Christ Church is an excellent way to honor a faith-filled life

Easter Memorials

A beautiful Christ Church tradition, we adorn our spiritual home with Easter lilies given in loving memory or thanksgiving for special people in our lives.

Make your gift online here by March 12.

Gifts of any amount can be made in memory or honor of loved ones. We will gratefully acknowledge your thoughtful donation by notifying the person or family member you designate (no gift amount is disclosed).

Memorial and honorary gifts to Christ Church are used to improve and maintain the entire Church campus, including the buildings and surrounding gardens, and sacramental items.

Altar flowers are another way to remember someone who has died or to honor an occasion of celebration. Altar flower gifts are recognized in the bulletin on the weekend of their placement. Contact the Church office to arrange a gift of altar flowers.

Many people choose to include Christ Church as a recipient of memorial gifts at the time of death. For additional details, or specific obituary wording, please contact the Generosity & Stewardship Office.
