WOMEN'S MINISTRIES

Episcopal Church Women (ECW)

The ECW builds the women’s church family at Advent by providing opportunities to serve the church, the members and the community.

Daughters of the KingNita Martin

A lay order of Episcopal women who have taken a lifetime vow to follow Christ by daily prayer, service and evangelism.  Each Daughter decides how she will meet her vows.  We lead the Stations of the Cross during Lent as one of our services and assist the Priest as needed.

Happy Hat HookersJudy Purdy

This group “hooks” hats for homeless children and adults and anyone who may need them.  The group meets the 4th and 5th (if there is one) Mondays of the month from 8:30 to 11:30 AM.

“Helping Hands”Judy Purdy, interim

The purpose of this Ministry is to make and deliver blankets and pillows for abused, homeless or otherwise needy children and others as well as to provide fellowship for the women and service to the community.  The group meets the first three Mondays of the month from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.   People come when they can and leave when they need to.  We enjoy the camaraderie, a snack and knowing that we are doing good for those in need.

Miles of PenniesGrace Roumell

The ECW actively participates in collecting donations for the Miles of Pennies (MOP) fund, which is one of two national granting funds of the Church Periodical Club.  MOP monies are used to provide children, pre-school through grade 12, with printed or taped books and related materials.

ECW OutreachSharon Mather

ECW monetarily supports many outreach projects within the church and in the community and Diocese.  In addition, each year they select one “hands on” outreach project.  In 2013, a collection prior to Christmas provided a shopping experience for two needy families in Surprise.  In 2014, our project was “Our Neighbor’s Keeper”.  It is designed to provide a nutritious meal, contained in a quart-sized plastic bag, for anyone homeless or in distress.  Parishioners as well as different agencies aid in the distribution.

Prayer ShawlsKaren Andrews & Babs Vaughan

This is a group of people who knit or crochet prayer shawls, mainly for parishioners.  The shawls are given to those who need comfort, are ill, or grieving.  As the shawls are made, the knitter and/or crocheter pray for help for these people.

Rummage SaleAnn Fletcher

“Advent’s Attic” and Fashion Show is the annual fund raiser selling used “treasures” from members’ homes.  We collect items throughout the year and ask parishioners for their help in storing them.  For the Rummage Sale, we work from Monday through Thursday, getting everything set up and priced for sale.  It is good fellowship and the proceeds go to our outreach programs.  Our sale lasts two days but raises a great deal to support good causes.
