The purpose of the ECW is to carry out Christ’s work throughout the world. To live Christ’s ministry we:
- Listen to voices of women worldwide;
- Promote educational, spiritual, and social programs which minister to women and children;
- Provide opportunities and tools to grow relationships with God and others through spirituality, prayer, and worship; and
- Encourage the development of women’s leadership by example in stewardship, training, and education.
As we pursue this purpose, we follow the Five Marks of Mission:
- To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom
- To teach, baptize and nurture new believers
- To respond to human need by loving service
- To seek to transform unjust structures of society
- To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth.

On a monthly basis this group gathers together to make quilts for newborns in the congregation and for those about to be baptized. They also knit Prayer Shawls for those who are in the hospital and nursing homes.
Daughters of the King
The Order of the Daughters of the King is an Order for women with the mission of extending Christ’s Kingdom through prayer, service and evangelism. It is an international group with a 130-year history that currently includes women in the Anglican, Episcopal, Lutheran (ELCA), and Roman Catholic churches. St. Timothy’s Mary and Martha Chapter was established three years ago. Members of the Order of the Daughters of the King undertake a Rule of Life, incorporating the Rule of Prayer and the Rule of Service. By reaffirmation of the promises made at Baptism and Confirmation, a Daughter pledges herself to a life-long program of prayer, service, and evangelism, dedicated to the spread of Christ’s Kingdom and the strengthening of the spiritual life of her parish.
