Episcopal Church Women (ECW)

We’re Every Woman

The ECW (Episcopal Church Women) is the inclusive circle of ALL women at Christ Church, divinely connected: giving, receiving, and growing through faith, friendship, and fellowship. 

ECW has long been a vital part of Christ Church, working to raise funds for local and national missions, participating in hands-on ministries like Habitat for Humanity and Room in the Inn, as well as hosting inspirational events and social gatherings.

See the calendar for upcoming programs and groups especially for women. 

Women's Retreat May 5 - 7

Holiday Events

During the Advent season we celebrate together and host a Christmas pop-up and greenery sale to raise funds for organizations serving women and children in our community and around the world. 

Mission Fundraising

ECW has donated over one million dollars to local and national nonprofits who focus on the needs of women and children in the local community and abroad. We do this with funds raised primarily from the GoodNews Shop and holiday Pop-Up Shop.

GoodNews Shop
GoodNews was founded over forty years ago as a continuous fundraising stream for ECW, donating its proceeds to nonprofit initiatives. GoodNews is located on the upper level of All Saints' Hall (look for the green awning) with a tempting inventory of books, cards, pottery, jewelry, food and beautiful crafts. Learn more »

Christ Church Gallery
The hallway walls above All Saints’ Hall are adorned with the work of local artists, both aspiring and established. Sales benefit ECW mission funding. Learn more »

ECW Mission Funding

Funds generated by the GoodNews Shop and our holiday events support mission efforts in our community and beyond. 

November 2021

As we navigate our way through unprecedented times, the Christ Church ECW and GoodNews Shop continue to work to provide assistance to our valuable community organizations. With decreased traffic in our church buildings, the revenue from our main source, the GoodNews Shop, has substantially declined. 

The need for support in our community is greater than ever. While ECW Mission Funding is not conducting its normal application process this year, there is hope we may be able to award some funds to organizations we have supported in the past as well as a few new ones. The amount of these gifts will not be determined until January. 

If you are interested in consideration for these funds, please complete the following form: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/G5CVJZK

Should you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Kalie Koivisto at  . 

Thank you for your patience and commitment to serving those in our community and beyond.
