Epiphany Weekday School:  The last day of school is May 24.  Summer Camp weeks will be June 3-7 and June 10-14, registration for summer camp ends on May 1.

Synod Assembly:  The annual Metro D.C. Synod assembly will take place June 14-15, 2019, and will include an election of a new bishop to succeed Bishop Richard Graham, who is retiring.  Angeline Lim and David Yocis will be Epiphany’s delegates to this year’s assembly.  There will be a Potomac Conference pre-assembly meeting at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Falls Church on Sunday, June 2, at 1:30 p.m., which is open to anyone interested in the assembly.  For more information on the assembly and the process for electing a new synod bishop, see here.

Save the Date:  We are working towards the possibility of a special meeting of the whole Epiphany congregational membership after services on Sunday, June 23, for purposes of voting on a potential pastoral call.  It is important that we have a quorum (at least 20 confirmed members) for this meeting.  Please be sure to be present if you are able.  We will include more details as they become available.

If you know of anyone who is sick or in the hospital, please let us know by sending an e-mail to ELCMountVernon@gmail.com.  We want to be able to reach out and include everyone in our community, even if health prevents you from joining us in worship.
