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.

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.

Nursery care is offered during the morning services for newborns and young children. Parents who regularly use the nursery are asked to volunteer once a quarter. Contact the parish office to get on the rotation.

Children’s Activity Bag: Children are invited to take with them into church one of the colorful bags by the glass narthex doors. Inside are pipe cleaners, a children’s bulletin about the day’s scripture, and crayons. (Parents: please read the back page, that is for you.) Be sure to return the bags to the nook at the end of worship.

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.
