Episcopal Church Women
Every woman at Holy Trinity is considered a part of this ministry. The meetings offer opportunities for fellowship, encouragement and instruction in Christian growth, service to the church and outreach to the community.
ECW Vision Statement: We are Episcopal Church Women committed to one another and called to be witnesses for Christ. Our challenge is to provide a safe place where every person is free to become the person Christ created her to be. We are called. We are different. We are one body.
ECW PURPOSE: The purpose of this organization shall be to unite the women of Holy Trinity Parish in a program of worship, study, service and fellowship which will deepen and strengthen their own spiritual lives and lead them into service for the church in the parish, the community, the diocese, the nation, and the world.
Officers: President – Terry Jolliffe; Treasurer – Paula Howbert
