We have a ministry for everyone! No matter your age or where you come from, there is a place for you to serve. .
The sanctuary at Epiphany is a wonderful space for music with excellent acoustics. We host a number of concerts and recitals during the year, performed by local talent and special groups on tour from across the country.
Acolytes & Vergers
Acolytes provide assistance to the deacons and priest, at the table for communion, leading processionals and recessionals, ringing the Sanctus bells, lighting and extinguishing the candles.
Chalice Bearers wear white albs with a robe over their shoulders in the liturgical color of the season. They help celebrate Holy Eucharist by serving wine to those who come forward to the altar rail.
Lectors (lay readers)
Lectors read the lessons of the day from the Revised Common Lectionary, an assigned list of texts appropriate for that particular day in the church calendar. Lectors lead the congregaton in the reading and singing of the psalm for the day, and in the Prayers of the People.
Greeters & Ushers
Greeters are the first people you meet when you come to church – we want everyone to feel warmly welcomed into our community. Ushers hand out the bulletins, give directions & collect the offering. They also bring the gifts of bread and the wine to the altar.
The Altar Guild is the oldest lay ministry in the Christian church. A behind-the-scenes ministry, they consult with the clergy on the linens and vessels that will be needed for all services, as well as maintaining and caring for liturgical vestments and supplies for Holy Communion .
We believe that fellowship in worship is a huge part of the calling that Jesus has given us to do. What better way to make new friends, and walk with one another, than to join a ministry that supports authentic and life-giving worship..
