Parish Weekend Away: Registration Opens April 30

Nine days from now, on Sunday, April 30, registration for the Parish Weekend Away will open. This is an all-parish retreat weekend, held on September 22-24, 2023, in Greenfield NH. It is at a beautiful camp on a lake, with walking trails, canoeing, meals you don't have to plan/cook/cleanup, workshops, worship, and so much more. The kids had a wonderful time last year (ask them how many marshmallows they toasted, or how many hours of gaga ball or hide-n-seek they played); the teens had a wonderful time last year (ask them about rock climbing!). Please consider coming. We want you there! Details are in an email from April 11. Email Bryn with any questions. 

Church School Begins Again on April 23

We will begin our final Church School unit of the year next Sunday, April 23. 

During the final month of classes, the Godly Play Class (preK-1st grade) will be learning about the life of Jesus, his parables, and Pentecost. The Story Makers Class (2nd-5th grade) will be introduced to the curriculum of Godly Play (bigger kid style) and learn about the history and organization of the Bible, an overview of the Old Testament, under-recognized (but fascinating!) Biblical personalities, and parables. 

Spring Church School classes will be held: April 23, April 30, May 14, and May 21. Classes are held at 10am, during the first half of the 10am worship service, in the Upper Parish Hall (younger kids) and Church Library (older kids). Visitors and newcomers are always welcome! Reach out to Bryn with any questions. 

Our church school program year ends on Pentecost, which is May 28. 

Graduation Sunday: May 21

All seniors graduating from high school are invited to be part of Graduation Sunday at Epiphany, on May 21. Please let Janelle know if you (or your child) are graduating and would like to be recognized. 

Serve with Epiphany at The Dwelling Place: Families and Children of All Ages

On Saturday evening, April 29th, from 4:30-6:15pm, Epiphany will be serving at The Dwelling Place, a soup kitchen in Woburn for those experiencing food insecurity. Volunteers will be needed to set up, serve, and clean up on that evening (Families and kids all ages are welcome!). We will also have a cook day in the Epiphany kitchen to prepare the meals the day before. Interested in the cooking team or the on-site at The Dwelling Place team? Sign up below!

Childcare for Infants & Toddlers During 10am Worship for Ages 0-3

Our nursery is open! Parents and guardians may drop off their young children -- ages 0-3 years -- in the Dewart Room during the 10am service. Our paid and experienced nursery caregivers will be ready to receive babies and toddlers beginning at 9:45am. Parents and guardians must pick up their children by 11:15am, and must remain in the building at all times.

Children need to be registered in our system (one-time registration) in order to be dropped off. This gives us important information about allergies, needs, and who may pick up your child. Please register here:
