ALL ARE WELCOME

We believe in a loving, liberating, and life-giving God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Growing In Faith Together

Epiphany is asking for an estimate of your financial giving for 2022.

Since 1844, people have been growing in faith together at Epiphany.

We grow in faith together through worship, outreach and fellowship. We grow together through celebration and mourning, giving and receiving, agreement and disagreement. And we also grow together in faith through questioning and doubt, revelation and understanding and the acceptance of Jesus and the Holy Spirit in our lives.

And through the generosity of people like you sharing God's gifts with Epiphany, we will continue growing in faith together.

It requires at least $180,000 per year to operate our church.

Your estimate of giving is very important for the vestry to plan and budget for 2022, and to be good stewards of the financial gifts the church receives.

Estimate of Giving for 2022

Bishop Anne at Epiphany Sept. 26

The Rt. Rev. Anne Hodges-Copple and Archdeacon Jan Lamb will be with us on September 26 for our annual visitation. This will be an outdoor service in Epiphany's Memorial Garden, and we will be joined by our sisters and brothers from St. Luke's.

Brynner Alsiyao will be baptized and several people from Epiphany and St. Luke's will be confirmed or reaffirmed.

The service will begin at 10:00 am. Some chairs will be available, but it's preferable that you bring your own so that our guests from St. Luke's will have places to sit.

Please bring masks.

Following the service, there will be an informal lunch in the church yard with the Bishop Suffergan and the Archdeacon.

In order to plan for the meal, please be sure to reserve your spot by Thursday, September 23.

Assistance with the logistics of this event in needed. Please contact the church if you can help.



Blessing of Animals

The annual Blessing of Animals will be held on Saturday, October 2, at 10:00 am in the church yard.

All pets are welcome, and should be on a leash or in a carrier.

This event isn't limited to dogs; Mother Linda has blessed many species in past years.

Please invite your friends and their pets.



Afghan Refugees - How to Help

Potentially hundreds of Afghan refugees will be resettling in the Triad in the coming days or weeks.

CWS-Greensboro (Church World Services) is a leader in the resettlement effort.

Visit the CWS website for more information on how you can help.

Episcopal Migration Ministries(EMM) is also helping nationally. Visit the EMM site for more information.



Sunday School - on Tuesdays!!

Starting June 15, adult Sunday School will be Tuesdays at 7 pm. We will meet for about 1 hour.

We hope this change might make Sunday School available to more people.

The format will remain the same: watch the National Cathedral sermon from the prior Sunday and discuss it.

It is very informal. It is not uncommon for the discussions to wander a bit, which is ok.

We hope you will join us.

It will remain a Zoom meeting with the existing link.
