What to Expect on Sunday

Welcome! As our guest, we want to make sure you feel the hospitality of Church of the Epiphany as soon as you arrive. You’ll likely meet our priest and leaders at the front door, who will greet you with a friendly hello and guide you to our worship space. As you enter our worship space, a greeter will invite you to join with the rest of our congregation in making a nametag (totally optional), and if you’d like, they will help you find a seat. During our worship, we will never single out newcomers or ask you to introduce yourself to the group.

Following worship, you are invited to join us for refreshments and fellowship in the parish hall.

What do I wear?

We are a pretty relaxed community — there’s no need for a suit or tie or a dress (unless you really want to wear them!). You’ll see jeans, shorts, khakis, button downs, polo shirts, and t-shirts. As long as you’ve got clothes on, we’re good.

What about children? Can they attend worship?

All of God’s children are welcome at Church of the Epiphany (no matter how old or how young)! During our 10 am worship service, we offer Children’s Chapel for kids age 3 through 3rd grade. About half way through the service, the children rejoin their parents for Holy Communion, when we gather around the Lord’s table.

For children who prefer to sit with their parents throughout worship, we offer children activity bags, and if you have a little one that gets a little too wiggly for your comfort level, we have a space set aside in the entrance to the church if your child needs to take a small break from worship.

Will there be someone like me at Church of the Epiphany?

Church of the Epiphany is made up of a diversity of persons reflecting the beauty in which God created humanity. We have folks from many different walks of life. Some of our diversity includes, but isn’t limited to: rich folks, poor folks, gay, straight, bisexual, transgender, and trans* folks, Republicans, Democrats, Independents, left-handers, right-handers, hearing-impaired who don’t use ASL, old, young, pet lovers, pet averse, empty nesters, parents with kids, single moms, single dads, recently divorced, people with spouses who profess another religion, adoptive parents, people with spouses who aren’t religious, Caucasian, African-American, British… and our list keeps growing. We hope you’ll bring your gifts and add to our quirky, fun, diverse mix of people!
