Episcopal Church Women (ECW)
The ECW national organization is comprised of all women members of the Episcopal Church of all ages, ethnic origins and socioeconomic backgrounds who hold a variety of views. However, the common denominator of our members is love of God and the wish to do His work. Centered in congregations, the Episcopal Church Women (ECW) empowers women to do Christ’s ministry in the world.
St. Hilary’s Monday Morning Workshop of the ECW is a group of women who meet weekly to work on craft and sewing projects, primarily for the annual bazaar, which is held in November. Proceeds from the bazaar support the outreach activities of the church. In addition, the women hold two rummage sales a year, also to provide funds for outreach activities on a local and national level.
The next ECW Rummage Sale will take place Saturday, November 2, 2013.
Women’s Book Group
The Women’s Book Group of St. Hilary’s will meet again Thursday, June 20 at 7 p.m. in the Conference Room, when we will discuss An Altar in the World by Barbara Brown Taylor. Women of all ages are welcome to join us, and it is not necessary to commit to attend each month. If you would like a used copy of the book, the cost is $6. Please contact Rebecca Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like a copy. The book is also available through the Lee County Library System.
Daughters of the King (DOK)
St. Mary’s Chapter of DOK at St. Hilary’s continues to service its purpose of prayer, service and evangelism. We pray daily for Christ’s Kingdom, for the spiritual growth of the Church, for all in need of emotional, spiritual and physical healing. Our Prayer Tree is available for those who request prayers for a specific person or need by calling the church office (239-936-1000).
Lunch Bunch is a group of men and women who gather monthly during the fall, winter and spring on the second Thursday of the month for a potluck lunch in Browning Hall. The fun starts with cards, games, puzzles, and talk and have lunch at noon. They also gather for an annual outing. Adults of all ages are welcome to this social group.
Enjoy bridge and company? Join us Mondays at 6:30 p.m. in Browning Hall to play! In season, beginning in January, you can also play bridge at 1 p.m. Wednesdays, same location. These are opportunities to learn or improve your bridge game. Contact Jo Lane at email@example.com with any questions. All are welcome!
We are a small group of faithful who meet once a month. We maintain an active prayer list that is updated weekly for those who request prayers. We welcome women who seek to strengthen their prayer life. Please contact President Ruth Meredith for more information through the church office.
