God’s Love

Episcopal Church Women (ECW) of St. Martin’s is the fellowship of all women of the Parish. ECW is organized to enable them to serve our Lord through Service, Worship, Education, Evangelism, and Pastoral Care.

Episcopal Church Women (ECW)

The mission of the Episcopal Church Women (ECW) of St. Martin’s Episcopal Church is to bring women together for fellowship, service and outreach while spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ.


The ECW Board, working closely with Clergy and Staff and supported by enthusiastic volunteers, carries out programs that feature special guest speakers, provides children’s events at Christmas and Easter and creates various opportunities for women to come together in fellowship.

ECW also plans and organizes the annual Joy of Giving Market, its major fundraising event. The success of the Joy of Giving Market and other fundraising activities allow ECW to contribute generously to St. Martin’s Outreach Grants each year.
