“One Church” was the message presented by the Reverend Melinda Hall at the ECW Annual Meeting in Youngsville, May 7. Members of the diocesan Dominican Republic team each spoke of their mission to the church in Santiago De Los Caballeros and the children as they assisted in the Vacation Bible School. This coming year will be the second time the team travels there. Recently, Melinda requested support from our diocesan churches by way of crafts and financial support for “treats” for the children. On hand at the ECW Meeting, Gloria McIsaac, President of the ladies guild of Emmanuel Church, Emporium was able to present two crafts to the team. Supplies for bead bracelets and flower pens. Melinda pointed out that the ten member team was a collaborative effort from our diocese as no two people were from the same church. Missy Greene also shared her role working with The Vine, a youth ministry in the Erie area. The Episcopal Church Women offer their prayers and support for these two outstanding efforts.
