Open-Minded. Thoughtful. Questioning. Faithful.
These are some of the words that describe Epiphany. Every Sunday during worship these words are used to greet life-long Epiphany members and first time visitors - and everyone inbetween:
No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey,
you are welcome here.
Welcome to our first-time guests!
Welcome to those who have no church home, need strength, have doubt, want to follow Christ, or even do not believe.
Welcome to those who were baptized here and have worshiped in this place for generations!
Welcome to people of all sexual orientations & gender identities, to people of all racial & ethnic heritages, and to families of every shape and size.
May God find you where you are and welcome you home.
