Epiphany’s robust ministry of small groups caught the eye of Bishop Greg Rickel during his last visitation resulting in the production of this 14 minute mini-documentary. It has been widely viewed throughout our diocese and beyond resulting in a number of congregations wanting to learn more about how to create similar groups of their own. If you are currently participating in a small group, see if the stories here resonate with your own experience. If you watch this and feel drawn to participating in a new group in the fall, let me know. firstname.lastname@example.org.
Music Director Search Committee Formed
The Music Director Search Committee (MDSC), has been formed and authorized by the Rector and Vestry, and is now in the early days of its work. Committee members are: Sherman Griffin (Chair), Laura Blackmore, Beth Clark, Doyt Conn, Bill Hurt, Laurel Nesholm, John Starbard, and Gary Sundem. The overall timeline includes posting the job this summer 2017, receiving and evaluating applications this fall 2017, candidate visits in winter 2017-2018, a final candidate recommendation to the Rector in early 2018, with a start date for the new Music Director in Spring 2018.
The Music Director’s role includes serving as the primary organist and choirmaster, overseeing the adult and children’s choirs, and serving on the Epiphany Seattle Music Guild.
As the committee begins its work we will have many opportunities to listen and discuss Epiphany’s music vision. We want to hear all input, large and small, on what you think we should be looking for in a new Music Director, and how the music program should grow and build upon the excellent foundation and infrastructure in place. We are blessed to have the time and resources to do this-so please be on the lookout for coffee hours, input sessions, and meetings through the end of the year as we discern what we need.
Separately, the Rector has named a new Interim-Music Director who will lead the existing programs and be in place until the full-time director starts; this committee is not charged with Interim responsibilities.
The MDSC is excited to begin its work and knows that it has a big, weighty task ahead of it. We look forward to serving the parish and building upon our incredible music program. To contact the committee, you may email us a email@example.com, or feel free to engage any of the committee members at any time.

Service Opportunity at Vacation Bible Camp
At Vacation Bible Camp this summer, we are learning how to listen and respond to God’s message of love and care for others. In our service station, our children will create hygiene kits that will serve Syrian refugees through a Seattle-based humanitarian aid organization called Salaam Cultural Museum. Salaam Cultural Museum (SCM) is engaged in humanitarian and educational activities. Our mission is to provide humanitarian aid to people affected by conflict and natural disaster within the MENA region, and to bring cultures and people together to build bridges of understanding.
Donate HYGIENE ITEMS that we will package into clear plastic gallon size Ziploc bags for Syrian refugees!
There is a box in the Epiphany Office for donations. Thank you!
