The GoodNews Shop

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 proceeds in the form of grants to 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.


GoodNews To Go

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!

Christ Church Gallery

The idea for Christ Church Gallery began in the early 1990’s when Jo Rankin saw an art exhibit at Coventry Cathedral in England. She later presented the idea to Henry Parsley, who immediately said “Let’s start the gallery!” Over the years, the gallery has grown and improved. (Jo still remembers struggling to hang the art on chains attached to the cinder block walls.)

Today, a new group of local artists arrive each month with their work. The media are varied, and have included pencil, pastel, watercolor, oil, and even collage. The works are sold through the GoodNews Shop, with 30% of the sale price going to mission funding. For more information, contact Margaret Salisbury at or Murray Parker at

Last year the Gallery and the GoodNews “Artist of the Month” program contributed almost $9,000 to our mission funds. The next time you are considering a painting, remember that any purchase will be a benefit to you and also to good causes in our community.
