What to expect at worship

Each Sunday morning, Epiphany meets together for worship in a beautiful setting that was built in 1930, at the height of the great depression, by its members. That spirit of dedication still pervades our congregation. Today, this arts and crafts space serves the spiritual needs of a very diverse community. Whether we are voicing thanksgiving for the 90th birthday of an active volunteer at our welcome meal or celebrating the baptism of a newborn, you will discover that the worship experience at Epiphany has many faces and sounds.

 

Great hymns of the faith are often heard, accompanied on a beautifully restored, magnificent pipe organ. Yet, at times, you may hear the congregation singing a spiritual, a contemporary chorus, or even singing a rousing gospel song. There are Sundays when a jazz trio accompanies the music of the service. Epiphany blends both traditional and contemporary styles into the fabric of each service.

Liturgically, the church follows the lectionary which runs from Advent in late November-early December in a year-long cycle modeled on events in the life of Christ. Colors, music, and readings vary with the church season. Each Sunday, our children participate with the Pastor in a special time before heading off to Sunday School.

Each service at Epiphany weaves praise, prayer, proclamation of the word
through Biblical readings and preaching (current messages can be found here), and a time for personal contemplation. While the teachings of our church are thousands of years old, our interpretation and implementation of our beliefs is as new as the morning light that streams through the stained glass windows each Sunday.

Epiphany is a place of warmth and acceptance. Epiphany is a place of prayer and praise. Epiphany is a place of refuge and repair from the rigors of our busy lives. Come, join us, we would welcome your visit.
