    Church Office Closed: Monday, October 12th, the Church Office will be closed in recognition of Indigenous Peoples' Day/Columbus Day.

    THANK YOU!: Our first experience of regathering for in-person worship this past Sunday went very well and I want to thank everyone for your participation, patience and grace. I also want to thank the Vestry for their leadership and for serving as our Ushers. I also especially want to thank Evie Jackson, Sr. Warden, Jennifer White, Health Coordinator, and Jennifer Hooper, who videoed the service for us, their planning and assistance has been invaluable. We will continue to make changes as we move forward and I hope these will always be improvements. Please continue to be patient and flexible as we move forward week by week.    Jon+

    CROP Walk Thank You: A small but mighty group of walkers from Epiphany participated in the annual CROP Walk Sunday, October 4th. The walk was a fundraising event benefitting Church World Service with a portion of the proceeds going to God’s Storehouse, our local food bank. The goal of Team Epiphany was to raise $1,000, and we exceeded that amount by $267. Thanks to our intrepid walkers Allen, Corliss, David, Jessie, Jo, Jon, Kay, Laura, Nan and Rose for making the CROP Walk such a fun experience. Evie was stationed at God’s Storehouse and served as the CROP Walk treasurer. Thank you to everyone who donated to this worthwhile fundraiser. Way to go Epiphany!

    New Procedure: Beginning this week we are changing the method of indicating your planned attendance for in-person on Sundays. This will allow for better management of our limited seating as we move forward and help with contact tracing should the need arise.
    Please use this link for 
    In-Person Registration” to let us know if you are planning to attend in-person this Sunday. The link can also be found on the front page of our website.

    Hymns: Pei-Yi would love to know what your favorite hymns are.  Please email her at epiphany.danville.music@gmail.com and let her know the hymns that you would enjoy hearing her play.

    Forward Day by Day: Daily devotional books for November/December/January are now available in the parish lobby.  Stop by anytime Monday - Thursday from 9:00am - 4:00pm to pick up your copy.
    If you still need the devotional book for October, those can still be picked up at the church office.
