Each year the women of our diocese select a diocesan, a national, and a world mission project at the ECW annual meeting. Funds are donated from ECW branches, individuals, and other groups for these missions. The Daughters of the King support the missions with our prayers. EDUSC DOK Chapters might also adopt one or more as a service project, sharing our time and talent as we can. We will pray for these ministries at our chapter meetings and in our personal prayers.

 

Diocesan Mission Project: Fresh Start at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church
1300 Pine Street, Columbia, SC 29204
Loving God, we know that you hold all of us in the palm of your hand. Yet, we mourn for those who will be served by Fresh Start who have lost their serenity, security, and confidence. Send your healing and soothe their spirits with the balm of your tender love. Help them to feel secure and whole again, as safe as ever within the shelter of the Lord. Help them, with your grace, to move beyond their circumstances, and grant them the peace and serenity of mind and body. We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

 

National Mission Project: SC Bishops Public Education Initiative

Loving God, we thank you for the treasure of children. Watch over them as they learn; fill them with wisdom; help their teachers and counselors to meet their needs. May the funds provided by the Episcopal Church Women of the Episcopal Diocese of Upper South Carolina enrich these students’ lives so as they go to school they may have a love of reading and of learning. We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

 

World Mission Project: Education Equals Hope
102 Academy Street, Fort Mill, SC 29715

Holy and gracious God, you cast your net of love so wide and gather us from the ends of the earth. So bless and guide Education Equals Hope as we work together with them to serve even the least of these, your most vulnerable children and young adults. Allow the scholarships that are provided by Education Equals Hope to symbolize our oneness with each other and our affection for one another in our love and service of you, through our Savior, Jesus Christ, who with you and the Holy Spirit reigns now and forever. Amen.
