170 years and counting! A sacred space on G Street.

Our church building was completed in 1844, and we are going to show our gratitude to this grand old house of prayer during its 170th anniversary year. In the weeks to come, we will talk about the history, architecture, beauty, use, developments, and challenges of our church building. Throughout it all, the story of the Epiphany church is one of courage, compassion, and deep faith. How has our sacred space supported you in your faith journey? We welcome your comments.

Ministry Minute: The Financial Stewardship Ministry Team

The Financial Stewardship Ministry Team focuses on engaging all parishioners in supporting the vision, mission, and ministries of The Church of the Epiphany. Throughout the year, we ask parishioners to reflect on how they can share their financial resources, talents, and gifts from a perspective of gratitude for God’s many blessings and the needs of the parish. In the fall, we are responsible for the Annual Pledge Campaign, which has a goal of 100% parishioner participation, whatever the amount of the pledge. We believe that making a financial pledge to God out of a sense of gratitude is the first principle of stewardship; the second is to ask for the funds required to support the ministries to which Epiphany is committed. If you would like to learn more about the Financial Stewardship Ministry Team, please feel free to speak to one of our members in Community Hall today or any other Sunday. The members are Jim McCarthy, Kathy Gallagher, and Brad Rickel, or feel free to contact us by email at
