Second Sunday Social Seekers is a group of (approximately) 20/30/40-year-old spiritual seekers at Epiphany that socialize after the 10:30am service on the second Sunday of every month – starting up again in September. Just find Caroline Angell or Jason Rios at the back of the sanctuary at the end of the 10:30am worship service.
Many Sundays our clergy or special guests lead EpiphanyTalks at noon on a variety of fascinating topics, including feminist readings of the Bible, race and racism, the Episcopal Church, the meaning of the Holy Week liturgies, aging and dementia, and the experience of pilgrimage in the Holy Land. You can find these events on our calendar and our Facebook page.
Each Wednesday, we serve a hot three-course dinner to over 100 homeless and hungry guests in our Parish Hall. Volunteers work in two shifts: 4:30-6:30pm or 6:30-8:30pm. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Janette Gautier through the church office. No experience is necessary.

Chair Kirsten Plonner is looking for enthusiastic volunteers for the 2019 auction to help out with gathering auction items, helping at the event itself or providing contacts …Read More »

Sponsored by Church World Service, we raised money toward this important cause – our Youth Group held a cookie and bracelet sale to help. The CROP Walk began in 1947 by U.S. farmers who contribute…Read More »
