This Week at Epiphany - August 25
99 Days of Gratitude! For the next 99 days, let us join together as a community to give thanks in all circumstances. Let us intentionally focus on being grateful for gifts in our lives, families, church community, and world. Click here for inspiration to get you started and for links to online tools you can use. If you prefer to use paper and pen instead, we have journals for you to use located on the black table in the Gallery.
August is Epiphany’s Month to Stock the Emmaus House Food Pantry with non-perishable dry goods and cans and jars – i.e.mac and cheese, ramen noodles, oatmeal, tuna, canned vegetables, peanut butter. A full list is suggested items is on the Bulletin Board in the gallery. Place your donations in the basket inside Epiphany’s front doors. Thank you!

No experience or music reading is necessary, but space is limited to adults and high school youth. Please contact Julie Ryder (email@example.com) if you are interested in attending.
This Sunday - August 31
The Altar Flowers & Sanctuary Light dedicatory offerings can be given as a memorial, thanksgiving or on a special occasion. Both the Altar Flowers and the Sanctuary Light slots are open for this Sunday. The Flower & Altar Guilds rely on these gifts to fund their ministries. Gifts can be made online right here, or contact the parish office (404.373.8338).
Say Cheese—We have over 1,000 members and sometimes the clergy just can’t quite put a name with a face. Please help them out by sending us your favorite snapshot or allowing Beverly Burke to take your family photo between services.
The Earth Guild are collecting corks (natural corks only, not synthetics) for recycling. Please bring your stashes of corks that you've been hanging onto for years because you didn't know how to recycle them. The bin is located by the front door.
