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.

Week of June 29

A Noonday healing service is offered on Wednesdays followed by Eucharist. The Bible Study at 1 p.m. will not take place during the month of July. The Wednesday Evening Bible Study with the Rector will resume on August 26.

Food for DEAM: June is Epiphany’s month to help stock the pantry at the Decatur-area Emergency Assistance Ministry. Our goal was to collect at least 100 each of the following items: jello, bar soap, small cornbread mix, hearty soups. And y'all really brought the goods this past Sunday. We just need 7 boxes of Muffin Mix to meet our goal.

7/2—Mental Health Support Group: A support group for people living with mental illness meets the 1st & 3rd Thursday of the month at 6:30 pm. The group is a confidential, safe place for people to be honest about their condition and its impact in their lives. Contact: Wende Crow wendecrow@gmail.com/678.900.7930.


This Sunday - July 5

The Altar Flowers & Sanctuary Light dedicatory offerings can be given as a memorial, thanksgiving or on a special occasion. Gifts can be made online at this link, or contact the parish office (404.373.8338). Cost: Flowers $70, Sanctuary Light $6.

Mother Emanuel: Reflections and Conversations - On Sunday morning, join Sharon in the parish hall to hear some of her reflections after spending last Sunday at Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC. While the events of that horrific night on June 17 - in that place where 9 people were shot and killed while in bible study - will continue to impact and affect us, come and share where you are now and what we might start to do as individuals and as a community to eradicate the sin of racism in our world.  

Epiphany Summer Choir: Our Epiphany Choir is taking a well-deserved break from regular rehearsals this summer, but we will still have choral music on Sunday mornings. Here is your chance for singing with no mid-week commitment! Come to the music suite on Sunday mornings at 10:30 and learn the music for that Sunday’s service. We will not process or vest and you may decide to sit in the congregation until the Peace, sing the anthem, and then return to your seat. All adults and high school youth are welcome.  Summer Choir begins next Sunday June 7.

Children’s Chapel is held during the 8:45 a.m. service. We gather at the steps for the Gospel procession (parents are welcome to come up too) and process to chapel. After prayers, and children’s sermon, we rejoin our families at the Peace, and remain for the celebration of the Holy Eucharist.
