But their delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law they meditate day and night. They are like trees planted by streams of water, which yield their fruit in its season, and their leaves do not wither. In all that they do, they prosper.
Episcopal Church Women draws from a source of abundant and continual supply - Jesus. ECW empowers everyone to carry out Christ's work in the world. We gather monthly to listen to speakers and engage with the wider community. We welcome everyone and warmly invite you to actively participate.
Join us as we walk our path of transformation, learning how to Love God, Grow Together, Serve Others, and Invite Friends in the community of Christ Church Cathedral.
At our monthly meetings guest speakers will share their passions and callings while raising our awareness of issues facing our community. Come for the fellowship and friendship and stay for the education and enlightenment. Be engaged. Be connected. Be empowered.
Donate to Support the Mission of ECW
There is much to do within the walls of Christ Church, within our community, within our state, and within 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.
