    Malden Warming Center logoJourney to Justice (formerly Mission & Outreach) has been actively involved with the Malden Warming Center (MWC) since last March.  The Center offers warm, safe, and dignifying overnight housing for those experiencing housing insecurity seven nights a week, from December 1 to March 31. This season, a dozen volunteers from Epiphany have been regularly taking shifts at MWC — welcoming guests, serving meals, and offering companionship.

    Among other services, MWC offers warm clothing and footwear for the guests. This Lenten season, we at Epiphany are collecting *NEW* clothing items that are low in inventory at MWC, particularly underwear for men and women (all sizes needed), long underwear, and socks. Please bring donations to the back of the church, or order directly from our wish list here. Items should be shipped to: Malden Warming Center, First Church of the Nazarene, 529 Eastern Ave, Malden MA 02148.

    Participation in this clothing drive is another way for us to extend kindness to the guests at the Warming Center. Questions? Reach out to Rev. Janelle

    Illustration of a hand putting a ballot in a voting boxGrowth and change are everywhere at Epiphany! With new and familiar faces, new and expanded offerings, and evolving and deepening missions, we are a dynamic, Christ- centered community.

    In recent weeks, we have frequently discussed the simple idea that Stewardship is everything we do — with our time, talent, and treasure – after we say “yes” to God. Lay leadership, a key element to sustaining this vibrancy at Epiphany, focuses on the time and talent facets of Stewardship.

    In the fall of each calendar year, we open the nomination process to discern who will join the lay leadership at Epiphany. Leadership opportunities for 2024 take many forms — Vestry, Clerk, Treasurer, Associate Treasurer, Diocesan Convention Delegate, Deanery Representative, Nominating Committee, and Property Committee.

    Over the next few weeks — between now and Thanksgiving — you are invited to share nominations for leadership roles next year. You can nominate yourself or someone else as an invitation to consider a calling not previously considered.

    You can submit a nomination online or by using the ballots and ballot box at the back of the church.  Click here for descriptions of each role.


    If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to any member of the nominating committee (below), and you are very welcome to share your nomination directly with us as well. We 
    look forward to hearing from you!

    With gratitude for the service of so many,
    Jared Cumming, Carol Hollingshead, Darwin Keith-Lucas, Joan O’Connor, and Reverend Nick

    Parish of the Epiphany's Memorial Garden in October 2023In the last few months, you may have noticed the newly planted Memorial Garden in the Cloister. It is now a carpet of native woodland plants designed to provide a place of peace and contemplation.

    In the garden you will see a variety of Northeastern native plants including crested iris, lady fern, bloodroot, striped cream violet, Bowman’s root, and wild geranium. New shrubs include mountain laurel and coast leucothoe, which are both native shrubs. The blooms in the garden will be primarily in a limited color palette of white and 
    purple with occasional blooms of pink, light blue and brick red in season. Over time many  of the smaller plants will slowly spread and fill in open spaces.

    Jenifer Tidwell gave of her time and talent to design and install the plants, which were purchased with funds provided by the Memorial Garden Fund.
