Church of the Epiphany has a wide variety of ministries that go beyond our church walls. We strive to be an active part of the Flagstaff community and to serve those around us.
Open Doors: Art in Action
Open Doors: Art in Action exhibits works of art to raise awareness of social, environmental and justice in our community and around the world.It is an art gallery in the parish hall of the Episcopal Church of the Epiphany. The gallery is a ministry of the church, but functions independently in both finances and programming. The mission is to raise public awareness of social, environmental, & justice issues thru art & accompanying programs.
The first exhibit, “The Landscape of Uranium Mining,” opened in April 2018. Twenty-one exhibitions have followed, covering topics from women's rights to land use on the Colorado Plateau. The gallery is part of the Flagstaff First Friday ArtWalk, each event attracting between 50-120 people. The gallery is also open on weekdays.
Creation Care ministries mission is to awaken and inspire Christ's people of the urgency of honoring, caring for, and sustaining the wholeness of God's creation.
We strive to provide education, practices, and advocacy resources to our church in order to help protect God's creation. Our goal is to raise awareness and actively work towards enviromental sustainability.
Feeding The People Ministries
Food insecurity is a common issue in many communities including in Northern Arizona. Church of the Epiphany aims to aleviate and help nourish our neighbors. We have a few programs in which we can assist those who are in need.
Flagstaff Family Food Kitchen
Eight volunteers help serve hot food (once a month on the 4th Thursday from 3-6 p.m.) to those who come to The Family Food Center - 1903 N 2nd Street. The commitee is composed of a pool of volunteers who are alerted one week before the scheduled shift, and they serve that month if they are available.
Meal Train Ministry
Our goal is to provide meals or gift cards for meals to those who are in need because of a personal or family situation such as illness, accident, etc. We want to help meet the needs of a member or member's family who needs assistance with meals during a stressful time in their lives. The person in need can specify if they have allergies or food intolerances, and their preferred restaruants or type of food. All of this is coordinated using the Meal Train software and home-cooked meals or restauarnt meals are both gratefully received. And those who provide meals are blessed to be a blessing.
Sweet Treats Baskets
We deliver sweet treat baskets semi-annually to parishioners in grief, shut-in’s and those who arouse our compassion.The sweet treats are appreciated, but it is the caring love tucked inside that is most enjoyed.
