From the wanderer, to the new believer, to the faithful worshiper, ALL are welcome at Epiphany. Visiting a church for the first time may feel a little intimidating, especially if you are unsure of what to expect. Here are a few details about our church to
help you feel welcomed.
Worship Times: We have two services on Sundays. 8:30 a.m. (Rite I Traditional) & 10:00 a.m. (Rite II Blended). On the first Sunday of every month, we offer Family Worship at 10:00 a.m. and Celtic Worship at 5:30 p.m. If you wish to connect before a Sunday service, join us every Wednesday morning at 7:00 am we gather for “Drive-By Prayers” in our Chapel (located in the building, just outside our worship space). Rev. Hillary leads us in a 20 minute prayer to make that day that much better.
Warm Welcome: We will have ushers waiting to welcome you as you enter the building, with a smile and a full-text bulletin laying out our Worship Service.
Accommodations for all: We have ample parking available right outside of our building. All of our services are held on the first floor of our building and are easily accessible. You have the ability to drive right up to our front door if necessary. We also have restrooms readily available right across from our worship space.
Variety of styles: We have a wide range of attire, from blue jeans and t-shirts to dresses, coats and ties. We want you to come however you are comfortable. Come as you are!
Wonderful nursery & Parent room: Our nursery is available for children ages newborn to preschool from 9:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.; However, ALL children are always welcome in worship, no matter the age. If needed, we also have a wonderful glassed-in Parent Room in the back of the worship space so parents can still see and listen to the service while tending to the needs of their children. Again, we love and encourage children in worship.
Vibrant programs for children & teens: Epiphany offers Sunday School during the school year and Children’s Chapel during the summer. We also have a growing Youth Group. See our Children, Youth, and Family section for more information about our wonderful programs.
Holy Eucharist: While a full text bulletin is provided, our celebration of the Holy Eucharist (blessed thanksgiving) comes from The Book of Common Prayer and comprises both the Word of God and The Great Thanksgiving, also known as The Lord’s Supper. We believe our worship is a celebration of praise and thanksgiving to a God who in creation, is made us known, blesses us and loves us.
Celebration of Sacramental Liturgy: We believe our prayers, the Word, and receiving the bread and the wine is an outward and visible sign of God’s inward and spiritual grace given to us in Jesus Christ. Our worship is not a spectator sport. Liturgy means, “work of the people”. All participate in the sacrament of Holy Eucharist. Click here for a full breakdown of our service.
Lively Post-Worship Coffee Hour: Following service, we gather in the Gathering Space (outside the worship space) to enjoy each other’s company and meet new friends over refreshments provided by all. You are encouraged to participate! We know that there’s the extroverts out there who will dive right in. There are also shy extroverts or the introverts who might feel a little overwhelmed. Please consider identifying yourself as new to the Vestry Person of the Day, the clergy, or an usher so that they may show you around as well as introduce you, staying by your side for as little or as much as you like.
Table Talks: We invite you to participate in our adult discussion facilitated by a leader after worship, from 11:30-12:15, about a topic from the sermon/message.
Children’s Choir: We have children’s choir offered to all elementary age children after worship, from 11:30-12:15. by our choir director Jane Waldrop.
