Upcoming Events at Epiphany

The Parish Planning Council will meet on Sunday, August 25, after the service.

On the Sunday after Labor Day Weekend, September 8, we’ll have a Fall Kickoff Sunday to learn about the different educational, social, spiritual, and service activities we’ll be having at Epiphany during the fall.  It will be a chance to discover how you can best grow as a disciple of Jesus and join with others at Epiphany to deepen our community and serve our neighbors both near and far.

Upcoming Events – From Our Synod and Neighbor Congregations

Bishop-Elect Leila Ortiz will be visiting the Mount Vernon area churches on Saturday, August 24, from 3-5 p.m., for a “Play and Pray” event.  Nativity Lutheran Church will host the event and has invited Epiphany and Messiah, as well as the French- and Spanish-speaking congregations that share their worship space, to participate in this event.

Messiah Lutheran Church is hosting a regional “Rise Up Against Hunger” food-packing event on Sunday, September 29, from 1-3 p.m.  We are hoping to have 50-60 volunteers from the area to pack 10,000 meals during the two-hour event.  Information on how to sign up, donate to the event, or both will be available soon.

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