The Collect of the Episcopal Church Women
Almighty God, we pray that you will bless our work in mission and ministry in the world. We give thanks for the gifts of joy and wonder to be found in your works. Make us so thankful for the power of Your love, given through Your Son, Jesus, that we may pray, labor, and give liberally to make known that love throughout the world.

The Power of Generosity


Support the Mission of ECW

There is much to do within the walls of Christ Church, within our community, our state, and our nation. Each monthly meeting will feature a community partner who will educate us on his or her work and mission as well as needs within their organizations. We will leave the meetings better educated and more aware. In turn, we will take that education and spread awareness to our fellow CCC members, our families, our neighbors and our friends. We have completed numerous special projects over the years, and have more work to do!

Consider donating to the mission of ECW below.

The UTO is an international ministry of the Episcopal Church for the mission of the whole church. It has been managed by the women of the church since the Women’s Auxiliary of the Board of Missions was organized in 1871. Grant requests are evaluated and funded to provide ministry to men, women and children. To learn more about UTO, visit
