"When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid."
~ Audre Lorde ~
The Commission for Women’s Ministries - C4WM - works to foster active communication, spiritual enrichment, and education among women of the Episcopal Church with Christ as the center.
At the national Episcopal Church level, and in some congregations and some dioceses, the women's group is known as the ECW (Episcopal Church Women). In the Diocese of West Texas, the name Commission for Women's Ministries has been adopted as being more descriptive of our mission and ministry.
The C4WM lends support to ministries around the diocese in which women are involved. Support comes in the form of financial donations, presence, connection with other women, promotion, or expertise on particular topics. Ministries might be served by an individual or a group.
Remember, God has created you to do some definite service; God has committed some work to you that has not been committed to another. You have a mission - continue that good work already begun in you.
