Registration for Christmas Services is Open!–UPDATED

As we do every year for the 100+ years we’ve been here as a community, Epiphany will celebrate the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ with multiple services — except that, this year, we have to do that celebrating a little differently. To learn more and plan for each of these offerings, click here to download a PDF flyer that you can print, for your convenience.

Our traditional Christmas Pageant is going to have a fresh look, shaped and inspired by these socially-distanced times. Look out for more information about that online broadcast closer to Christmas Eve. There will also be an online-only Holy Eucharist, as well as a recording of the 6:00 pm Christmas Eve service posted to our YouTube channel on Christmas Day. Links to all of these digital offerings will be made available here and in At A Glance. For a playlist of all our Christmas broadcasts & livestreams, click here.

At the church, we will have a series of special in-person Festival of Christmas services telling the story of Jesus’ birth through scripture and music. You may register by clicking on the links below. All COVID-19 protocols will be followed. Masks and social distancing are required. A COVID-19 release form will be emailed on December 23rd.

During our Christmastide services, we decorate our church with evergreens and poinsettias. You can remember a special person or event this Christmas by donating to the Epiphany Parish Flower Fund. Perhaps you would like to acknowledge the birth of a baby, a marriage or a loved one now departed, to be acknowledged in our Christmas service bulletins. Click here to download the donation form or go to this link to donate online. For online donations, be sure to select “Flower Fund” in the drop-down menu and to add your dedication in the “memo” line.
