BREAD FOR THE JOURNEY: Alana Yeomans
Alana Yeomans has been singing with Epiphany UCC since Thanksgiving 2021. She had moved to Chicago after receiving both undergraduate and graduate degrees at Missouri State University. Her beautiful soprano voice has been heard as both soloist and as part of Epiphany’s Choir. Her gracious presence has been experienced not just by the choir but by the whole congregation. But life changes. Alana is getting married and then moving to Denver. At Sunday’s service, we will have the (by now) traditional Bread for the Journey moment as she moves on to an exciting new part of her journey. Alana will be missed but we are so happy for her and grateful for her presence at Epiphany.
Nursery is on hiatus until further notice.
FROM THE EPIPHANY UCC SEARCH COMMITTEE
Your Pastoral Search Committee has completed a 38-page profile of the church. That is, a description of the church in all its facets to introduce Epiphany to pastoral candidates. All interested candidates receive a copy of our profile and the committee in turn receives candidate profiles, that is, their resume with several short essays about their life, work, and faith. Over the next weeks we will be screening candidates for possible matches to Epiphany’s needs. A bit later, we will conduct two rounds of interviews with the goal, of course, of presenting a finalist to the congregation for your consideration.
This Sunday several members of the committee will be downstairs in Fellowship Hall after services with copies of Epiphany's church profile for anyone to read over and discuss as you like. Betty in the church office (email@example.com) also has a digital copy of our profile she can share if you would prefer to see it that way.

Epiphany UCC will once again be marching with the Chicago Coalition of Welcoming Churches in the Chicago Pride Parade on Sunday, June 25th. The parade route begins at noon at Montrose and Broadway and ends at Diversey and Sheridan. Marchers are advised to wear comfortable clothes and shoes – temperatures can be in the 90’s – plus adequate sunscreen, water – and a hat!
Those representing Epiphany will be blessed during the beginning of worship. Then they’ll join up with representatives from other churches in the greater Chicago area. The parade is a powerful witness of our faith.
