10:00 a.m. in the nave
The heart of our parish life is worship. Our Sunday worship includes Holy Eucharist, also called Holy Communion, and includes Word and Sacrament, a sermon, and music provided by Epiphany's choirs. Our liturgy is The Holy Eucharist Rite Two Expansive Language, adapted from the Book of Common Prayer, and includes prayers both ancient and modern.
The Healing Station, located in the side chapel, is open during the distribution of communion at the 10:00 a.m. service. A trained lay minister or priest will pray with you and, if you wish, offer the laying on of hands and anointing for healing.
Sermon recordings are posted Tuesday afternoons to epiphany.org/sermons and archived for a year.
The Sunday service is also live-streamed on Epiphany's YouTube Channel and via Zoom. Recordings can be found on our YouTube channel following the time of original broadcast.

PRAYING SHAPES BELIEVING:
An Introduction to Expansive and Inclusive Language Liturgies
The way we pray determines the way we believe—expressed in the Latin maxim lex orandi lex credendi. The words and images we pray together shape our understanding and our relationship with God. How we talk about God and humanity in our liturgical language matters because it forms us into who we are becoming.
Ever since the publication of what some people still call the “new” Prayer Book in 1979, liturgical revision has been occurring, first in small ways in individual parishes, and then in more formal ways. In the years since the last official revision of the Book of Common Prayer, the Episcopal Church has called on parishes to become more inclusive in our language about humanity and more expansive in the language we use to talk about God, including the use of male, female, and non-gendered language for God. These changes remind us not to make an idol out of any of our language for God and help us acknowledge that language is limited in its ability to truly describe the fullness of who God is or to fully express the depths of God’s love for us.
in 2023, the Rector formed a team to look at the liturgical language we use at Epiphany and evaluate what changes we might be invited to make based on the liturgical revisions recommended by General Convention. After months of study, reflection, and prayer, we are recommending the adoption of the Holy Eucharist Rite II: Expansive Language, authorized by General Convention in 2018. The use of this liturgy began during Advent of 2023.
