"A Gift that Endures Creates a Church that Endures"
Have you remembered Christ Church in your will or estate plan?  Over 20 
parishioners have informed us they have.  Will you consider joining them?
A gift from your estate is a gift that continues to benefit the mission of Christ Church beyond your lifetime. We all want the parish to grow and thrive beyond our lifetimes; an enduring gift helps fulfill that hope.
