Fundraising

  • Applefest - On the first Sunday in October, Warwick's annual Applefest is an enormous, highly popular festival that brings in throngs of folks from nearby counties and New York City. Christ Church sells their famous apple butter to many return customers, and uses this opportunity as a major fundraiser for the parish.
  • Grocery-Store Gift Card Sellers - This team sells ShopRite and A&P gift cards after worship services, or weekdays in the parish office. Christ Church buys the cards at a discount, parishioners and friends buy the cards from the church at face value to use for grocery shopping.
All Are Welcome
