Episcopal Church Women

News from the ECW

The Episcopal Church Women of Redeemer met on October 29 to finalize plans for the upcoming season. It was decided that the ECW would purchase the turkey for the Thanksgiving feast with all side dishes being provided by members. You will find a Sign-up Sheet in the Parish Hall.

The ECW will donate $250 to the Woodfin Christmas Fund.

You can preorder pies or cakes from the Bakers of Redeemer for the Christmas Bazaar. This must be done soon so as to give the bakers time to prepare the orders.

Goft Cards will be purchased by the ECW for the chuldren who attend church on a regular basis.

A Vision for Episcopal Church Women

Our vision for all women of the Episcopal Church is that we become a vibrant blend of all ages, coming together as a peacemaking, healing part of the Church. We aspire to be a God spark* - shining and sharing the love of Christ.

     * The core self, the part of us made in God's image, spirit and soul.

VISION STATEMENT (National ECW) :  
As the eyes, ears, hands, and heart of Christ in the world, we will persist in the work of healing, justice, and peace.    (Adopted at the ECW Triennial Meeting 2015)


ECW Prayer

Almighty God, we pray that You will bless our work in mission and ministry in the world. Help us to pray fervently, labor diligently and give liberally to make known the power of your love given through your son Jesus Christ. Let us not forget the lessons from the past nor fear the challenges of the future. Anoint us with your grace and shine in our hearts as we reflect your light throughout the world. 
Amen.
