Green Show

The Green Show at Christ Church has been a Christmas tradition since 1953 and culminates on the first Saturday in December with a Christmas shopping event that is open to the public and features music, a child-friendly lunch menu, Santa, and the sale of wreaths, plants, trees, frozen foods, baked goods, and gifts.  On the evening before there is a "preview" cocktail party and silent auction for parishioners and their invited guests.  All proceeds from the Green Show are donated to local nonprofit agencies identified by the Outreach Committee. The 2016 Green Show raised more than $103,000.

Please speak with Gina Pike, Chair, or John Faulkner, Vice-Chair, to learn more about the Green Show and how to become involved in the 2017 Green Show effort.
