The Parish Council is the place in which the ministries of our parish determine their ways forward. Through strong lay leadership, Church of the Epiphany-Tempe is actively creating the future we wish to inhabit as a parish, and we invite your voice to be part of defining that future on November 14, 2020.
During our time together, we will frame the moment in which we exist, spend time learning techniques for identifying ways forward for our ministries, and host conversations that help us move forward as a community. We will pray together, listen together, share together, and enter the now moment, together.
The councils that make up the Parish Council include:
- Invite Council – The Invite Council includes the ministry areas of worship, evangelism/invitation, stewardship, and communications. The ministries in this area reflect the different ways that we invite our neighbors to get to know us and to get to know the love of God made known in Christ Jesus.
- Connect Council – The Connect Council includes the ministry areas of pastoral care, member and guest tracking, small groups, and fellowship. The ministries in this area reflect the ways that we grow in relationship with each other and with God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
- Disciple Council – The Disciple Council includes the ministry areas of adult formation, youth formation, children’s formation, and small group formation. The ministries in this area reflect the ways we learn and grow in our faith through the grace of the Holy Spirit.
- Serve Council – The Serve Council includes the ministry areas of local outreach, national and international outreach, servant evangelism, and justice-based ministries. The ministries in this area reflect the ways that we put our theology into action and embody the love of God out in the world.
The Parish Council is open to any person wishing to get involved with the different ministries at Church of the Epiphany! If you want to be engaged in the life of our parish, you are invited to join us as we begin to shape a new reality through our shared conversations.
Join us as we discern the way forward in mission and ministry!
