Mission & Outreach Survey: Parents, Help Us Understand What Service Opportunities Interest You and Your Family

The Mission & Outreach group at Epiphany is currently in a season of discernment about where God might be calling us to next. We are taking some intentional time to hear from the greater parish community and exploring new partnerships in our community. This is an excellent time for you, as the families at Epiphany, to chime in about what you would like to be involved in when it comes to caring for our community. Please consider filling out this survey today as an act of compassion and justice.

Youth Bowling: January 21

Please bring some extra money if you'd like to grab dinner (such as pizza) at the bowling alley.  Please plan to pick up your youth at the church at 8pm.

Please RSVP to Janelle if you're interested in joining us!
