ECW Spirited Women

Varies – See Events Calendar
ECW (Episcopal Church Women) Spirited Women is a women's spiritual/fellowship group. It is a time for busy women to get together, relax, and explore our spirituality. We do this in many ways: we meet at the church, at each other's houses, or at restaurants. We usually have a conversational topic or reading that we discuss, but sometimes we just relax together or take in a Science Pub topic at Cozmic Pizza. ALL women are invited; you don't have to attend every month. Watch the Bellringer and weekly email announcements for topics and locations.
