Sundays

Sundays at Epiphany are designed to include a combination of worship, fellowship, and classes, no matter what time you choose to attend.

7:30 am Holy Eucharist Rite I

WORSHIP 7:30 am–8:30 am (Chapel)
COFFEE HOUR  8:30 am–8:45 am (Great Hall)

The service of Holy Eucharist at 7:30 am reflects the more traditional heritage of the Anglican Church. The language is close to that which has been used for hundreds of years, and the Eucharistic prayer has a greater sense of atonement and redemption than the Rite II services. To that end, Christ’s sacrifice for the world is pronounced as the high point of the Eucharistic prayer. In The Book of Common Prayer, this service is called Holy Eucharist Rite I. The service includes hymns accompanied by organ. The sermon is identical at all four services.

8:45 am Holy Eucharist Rite II

NURSERY CARE  8:30 am–12:15 pm (Luke, age 3 and younger)
WORSHIP  8:45 am–9:45 am (Church)
COFFEE HOUR  9:45 am–10 am (Great Hall)

The 8:45 am service is called Holy Eucharist Rite II  in The Book of Common Prayer. The Eucharistic prayer varies based on the liturgical season, but as a whole it carries language that is gender-inclusive and focused on both Jesus’ saving love for us and on our partnership with God in redeeming the world. Childcare is offered beginning at 8:30 am for children aged 3 and under.

10:00 am Everybody Hour

NURSERY CARE  8:30 am–12:15 pm (Luke, age 3 and younger)

Epiphany invites everyone to participate in Everybody Hour, the time when the entire parish gathers for education and formation. There are classes for children and youth, as well as forums and classes for adults. And if you would like to relax and have a cup of coffee, feel free to hang out in the Fireside Room, which is set aside for informal fellowship.

NURSERY CARE  8:30 am–12:15 pm (Luke, age 3 and younger)
