Every Church Woman (ECW) of St. Philip's
All women members of St. Philip's are members of St. Philip's ECW (Every Church Woman). Its leadership is composed of an elected executive committee, directors, and ad hoc committees.
The chief goal of the Women of St. Philip's ECW is to promote Christian fellowship and growth for all women of St. Philip's through Bible studies, dinners with guest speakers, and service opportunities.
The Women of St. Philip's ECW is an arm of hospitality and outreach for all St. Philippians. It is responsible for hosting the Bishop's receptions for the fall and spring confirmands and all receptions for clergy. This organization coordinates other receptions as requested and works closely with the kitchen committee.
