Episcopal Church Women (ECW)

The Grace Church ECW is composed of both women and men of Grace Church who are interested in becoming active in our outreach and mission projects.

Mission Statement: The Episcopal Church Women of the Diocese of Virginia, with the grace of the Holy Spirit, share the love of God by making Christ known in the world through prayer, education concern for others, and joyful service.   

Our Logo: The Cross represents Christ and our service to Him in the world. The Circle stands for our hope for wholeness in our lives. The out-flowing lines from the center depict the many works of the Episcopal Church Women going out into the world. The intertwined lines represent our lives centered in Christ.

Vision Statement: To be a vibrant blend of all ages, coming together as a peacemaking, healing part of the Church. We aspire to be a God spark* – shining and sharing the love of Christ. The core self, the part of us made in God’s image, spirit, and soul.

Episcopal Church Women's Prayer: Almighty God, we pray that You will bless our work in mission and ministry in the world. Help us to pray fervently, labor diligently and give liberally to make known the power of  your love given through your son Jesus. Let us not forget the lessons from the past nor fear the challenges of the future. Anoint us with your grace and shine in our hearts as we reflect your light throughout the world. Amen (revised Fall 2004)
