Special Appeals and Offerings

Memorial Gifts: The All Saints' Fund 
Memorial gifts can be made through the All Saints' Fund which provides donors with the opportunity to honor the memory of a deceased loved one and at the same time express sympathy to his or her family. Contributions to The All-Saints’ Fund may be made by check or online with a note designating the person in whose memory the gift is given. Acknowledgment is sent to the family of the deceased and the donor. The All Saints' Fund enables Christ Church to enhance its worship or education programs in ways that give worthy tribute to the faithful departed.
Similarly, special occasions, birthdays, anniversaries, baptisms, confirmations or other times of celebration are opportunities for people to make contributions to the All Saints' Fund to honor a family member, family or friend. The one in whose honor the gift is given is notified by Christ Church and an acknowledgment is sent to the donor.

Flower Memorials and Thanksgivings 
We invite you to make a contribution on any Sunday in memory of, or in thanksgiving for, your loved ones. Your contribution provides for flowers, plants, or altar adornments, necessary for worship services throughout the year. The Flower Guild plans, purchases, and arranges the flowers each week.
In order for names to be printed in the Sunday service leaflet, they must be received two weeks prior to the desired Sunday. We ask for a minimum $75 contribution per name.  Contributions may be made payable to Christ Church (memo line: Flower Memorials) to the church office.
