Sunday Teachings at 10:00 am
Every Sunday at 10:00 a.m., adults gather in the Great Hall and on Zoom for teaching and discussion. This program year, we have five series focused on exploring our theology in greater detail. The five series are: Reading the Bible as Anglicans, Exploring our Heart and Soul, Theology Nuts and Bolts, Jesus Paul and the Prophetic Tradition, and Theology and Science. Everyone is welcome.
Bible Study with the Rector
The Rector’s Bible Study focuses on discussing the readings from the Read the Bible in a Year program. Each Friday at 9.30 from September through the Feast of Pentecost, we will explore the readings deeper and discuss what the readings mean for our life. This is an opportunity to learn what is actually in the Bible and how to read it for best effect. We look at context, examine theology over time, wrestle with tough questions, and enjoy the fresh perspective, energy, and enthusiasm for seeing the world we live in through the lens of the Bible.

We have several different kinds of small groups. Some of the groups are more relational, while others are working through a curriculum to get to know each other’s stories, grow in the spiritual disciplines, and become more rooted in their faith. There is something for everyone. The purpose of forming small groups is to help our church grow smaller as the church gets bigger, to help newcomers (and old timers) feel like they belong to the church, to explore and discover the many ways the Holy Spirit moves within us, and within the collective of our groups big and small.
C.S. Lewis is one of the most loved 20th Century Christian apologists. Over the years, we’ve read dozens of works by Lewis. We continue to explore his novels (The Chronicles of Narnia, The Screwtape Letters), his theology (Mere Christianity), and his autobiography (Surprised by Joy). We also look at his influencers (CK Chesterton, George MacDonald), and dig into history for context. To find out more and get a Zoom link, contact Jonathan Roberts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Women’s Retreat Group
The Women’s Retreat Group (WRG) is an energetic group of women at Epiphany Parish engaged in spiritual formation and community building across our parish and community. They gather monthly, from September through June, with the program based on Forward Day by Day. Additionally, WRG offers two in-depth retreat cycles, one half-day in November and one multi day in April. Recently, WRG developed additional programming throughout the year, bringing friends and community-building opportunities to our constituencies based on our 2022-23 season feedback.
