Do You Know What Happens Every Wednesday At Epiphany?
Many people in our congregation may not know that each Wednesday three things happen at Epiphany during the day before the Welcome Meal even begins. The Common Pantry is open to furnish people with food. Also, we have social workers helping people accomplish
Sunday School Needs Teachers and Assistants
We are writing to you because the Epiphany Sunday School Committee is in need of new teachers and assistants. Every year, the Epiphany Sunday School program grows in the number of children and in the quality of the curriculum. This year is no different. We have a fantastic group of children and an entertaining and educational curriculum. And we need more teachers. The best kind of teacher is a person who simply enjoys being around children and believes that Jesus Christâ€™s message of love and faith should be shared with children of all ages. What does it take to be a great Sunday school teacher? You don't have to know the Bible inside and out, and you don't have to be an expert in religion. You can be a great Sunday school teacher doing what you enjoy doing most--having fun with kids. We think you have those qualities and we are asking that you prayerfully consider this request to be a part of a vital part of Epiphanyâ€™s ministry.
In reality, being a Sunday School teacher at Epiphany requires a lot less time than you may think. Thanks to our team-teaching approach, the church calendar, and a new approach that includes children in the communion we share on the first Sunday of each month, the fact is that teaching may only require 4 Sundays of your time through the end of the year! We counted the Sundays from September 11 thru December 31 and the number of Sundays that require teaching
Here is the breakdown.
That leaves 8 Sundays to teach from September 11th thru the end of the year and since all classes will be team-taught, that means only 4 Sundays of teaching. We need your help so that every class is team-taught. Our curriculum is â€œSPARKâ€ and all of the lesson plans are all pre-arranged with online access for extra help and with a lot of room for freelancing. â€œSparkâ€ teaches the bible stories of the bible. â€œThe spring season is much the same â€“ it may require as little as one or two Sundays per month.
Please let me know as soon as you can if you will be a teacher or assistant and we can talk about the remaining classes that need teachers. Thank you and God bless,
New Called Pastor

EPIPHANY SUNDAY SCHOOL WANTS YOUR CHILDRENâ€™S BOOKS
Sunday schoolâ€™s out for summer, and has been for several weeks, but that doesnâ€™t mean there arenâ€™t ways for our children to remain involved in the life of Epiphany. We have a rich tradition of giving at Epiphany and as a summer mission project we would like to collect gently used or new childrenâ€™s books for the Olive Branch Mission at 63rd and Ashland. It is the Christian education committees hope that this will be the beginning of a new relationship for both the Sunday school and the clients of the Olive Branch Mission. So take a look at your book shelves and consider sharing those books that that your family has outgrown or would really enjoy sharing with someone else. Books will be collected through Sunday September 11th and an event will be planned soon after to deliver the books. Any questions please contact Melissa Gumm, Gloria Heatley or Jeremy Glenn.
