The Episcopal Church Women (ECW) of Holy Sacrament Church comprise of ladies who are rooted in their past and growing into God's future. They are a group of energetic, dynamic, God-fearing women who give of their time and talent to enhance God’s work in various ways. They are an integral part of the fabric of our church enabling the ministry and mission of women. The group seeks to carry on Christ's work of reconciliation in the world as they nurture and love and encourage each other to grow in God’s grace.
The aim of the ECW at Holy Sacrament is to do their best to help whenever the need arises and to improve their lives and that of others’ spiritually, physically and intellectually.
The group is responsible for a number of projects including:
· The “New to You Shoppe” (Thrift Shop), located on the church’s campus. The Shoppe is staffed entirely by volunteers who take pride in maintaining a clean and attractive atmosphere. The funds from this venture are used to help with local and overseas ministries, church expenses, helping bereaved/destitute families and other areas where assistance is needed.
· The “Exercise for Life”Class, coordinated by one of the members, Gail Newell-Sanior, meets on Mondays and Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. There is “Zumba” Class as well as a Thai Chi Class, led by professional trainer.
· The "Book Club" is another project that is led by Cynthia McBean. This is an intellectually, stimulating activity which is enjoyed by all who attend. The members of the club reads, studies, and discusses a different book on one Friday night of each month. They also enjoy a wonderful fellowship together while sharing and partaking of hors d'oevres and wine.
· The "E.C.W. Crafters" delight in creating beautiful and unique items for the December Craft Bazaar.
The hosting of an annual Tea Party, Christmas Party, and other social activities are always a pleasure to all who participate. The group gathers for corporate worship and communion on the first Sunday of February every year.
Meetings of the Episcopal Church Women (ECW) are held on the 3rd Monday of each month. All women are invited.
