All women of The Episcopal Church of the Annunciation (ECA) are members of the ECW. The ministry was created as a way for all women of the Church to come together and share in fellowship, spiritual growth and through outreach. ECA continues to have a very active community of giving women who gather together and provide good for the betterment of the community.

*Attention: RETREAT: We are attempting to put together a retreat in Helen GA for 2 nights over the MLK weekend in January. Please review the minutes for details and email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. WE MUST LOCK IN WHO IS GOING NO LATER THAN SUNDAY DEC. 2. Commitment is made by emailing Bliss AND turning in a check for $50 to church with ECW Retreat in the subject line.
HOLIDAY COOKIE EXCHANGE AND CRAFT NIGHT: November 30 will be our ECW Cookie Exchange and Craft Night. Here are the particulars:
Bring: 3 dozen cookies and a tin to take some home in
Bring: beverage you enjoy and a savory snack to share (we can eat cookies for our sweets!)
Sign up: if you would like to make a painted sign, please sign up and pay for the sign here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScm6Q1AwJbLCg7OmUaVD0pRB9kf3viPYXklAXcCX3S11bNh0A/viewform?fbzx=5945113846117786000
This is truly a fun and remarkably easy craft project, and the sign could make a great gift for yourself or others. Our instructor, Molly, has recently started attending ECA (we snagged her after the last sign painting party!) and she makes the whole process very simple. No talent necessary, I promise. Make sure you page ALL the way through the online catalog – Molly has all different signs to choose from, and the Christmas ones are a few pages in. You can choose any of the signs in her catalog. SIGN UP BY NOVEMBER 23.
OR Sign up: If you’d like to do a less expensive but still fun craft gift project, we will be making these Peppermint Sugar Scrub Jars: https://cincyshopper.com/25-days-of-diy-gifts-peppermint-sugar-scrub-in-a-jar-with-free-printable-label These would also make a great gift, and you would have plenty of time to make as many as you like. If you would like to do this craft, PLEASE EMAIL BLISS AT BLISSPETERSON@GMAIL.COM BY WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 28 so I can be sure to have sufficient materials. Cost will be $5 per jar (bring a check or cash on the evening of the 30th.)
OR just come and drink and eat and be merry with your fellow ECW sisters. Crafting is not required at all (but we will still take your cookies. J )
FINALLY: If you wish to contact members of this group about something that doesn’t pertain to everyone, please be sure to reply only to those people and not to REPLY ALL to reduce the number of emails for everyone. Thank you!
