Welcome to Epiphany on the Web!

Now that you are here, you can find out all about this Parish that has been around for over 100 years, welcoming, working for social justice, praying, having fun, and proclaiming the Good News of God in Christ that all have a place at our table. 

But, more importantly we want to see you here, on Sunday breaking bread with us, or Wednesday nights for choir, parish supper, or bible study. We want to invite you to help us feed the hungry at Peachtree and Pine (Task Force for the Homeless Shelter), or at Hagar’s House (a women and children’s shelter in Decatur). We want your children to learn the stories of our faith and tradition through Godly Play, we want to invite you to a quiet moment of meditation on your faith journey.

We are a place that welcomes people, all people. We welcome ideas about how we know and live God’s love in this world. We welcome the energy and passion to make those ideas a part of our common life here at Epiphany and in the larger church and the world.

Browse our site, get a notion here about what we are about then, come find out, in person, we will be glad to see you.

Peace,

The Rev. Benno Pattison, Rector

Our Mission

The Episcopal Church of the Epiphany is an inclusive community called to seek and follow Jesus Christ. We welcome all people in the Eucharistic Fellowship of Christ's Body. We receive strength and encouragement at the common table to carry out Christ's work of reconciliation in our broken world. Nourished by worship and witness, learning and teaching, fellowship and service, we strive to live out the Gospel's radical values with gladness of heart.

99 Days of Gratitude

Art Show
for September 2014
 

Join our Community in celebrating 99 days of gratitude!  Every day we want you to find something, or a person, or a moment to be grateful for.  We hope that this will be  a season in your life that can be transformative, healing, giving.  This is our season of being grateful for your family, this church, the work we do, God in our midst.  Come celebrate these 99 days!

Sundays we will have Town Hall meetings to listen, and talk about our gratitude for the work we do around Epiphany.  We will talk about mission and ministry, and numbers and budgets.  We want everyone to join us in this conversation.  Below you will see an alphabetized invitation.  If you can't come at the time that corresponds to your moment, come when you can!

This Sunday - September 7

Our Christian Education programs kick off September 7. Classes have changed, so please pay attention to the new breakdown as follows:

Godly Play 1: Pre-K/4 year olds 
Godly Play 2: Kindergarten and 1st grade 
Godly Play 3: Second and third grade 
Club 45: Fourth and fifth grade 
Middle School: Sixth through eighth grade 
High School: Ninth through twelfth grade

If your child is in our database, they are automatically registered for the appropriate class based on age. Please make sure the parish office has your family's correct contact information and DOB for each child enrolled.

Listening…: The clergy and a small group from pastoral care would like to have a ‘listening’ session with anyone engaged in long term care for a spouse/partner, parent, or child. We want to engage our community in the best pastoral response, and with the best resources we can to share the journey with people and families that find themselves engaged in the care, decision making, and planning for long term care issues. We will meet immediately following the 11:15 a.m. Eucharist. The Church will provide a light lunch. To RSVP, email the parish office.  Thank you and looking forward to hearing your story.

Children's Chapel Leader Training: Catherine Breed, and Fr. Ben Day will be hosting a "all-call" children's chapel training for adults and musicians who are interested in serving in this ministry. The training will be held in Jones Hall from 12:30-2 p.m. Lunch and Childcare will be provided.
