    eNews For The Week of September 19, 2021

    Sunday's Bulletin

    The Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost

    At 10:00am EDT in the Nave, there will be In-Person
    Holy Eucharist on Sunday, September 19th.

     Changes to the Liturgy
    You will notice some changes to the liturgy this morning, which will continue for a while. The reason for these changes is to shorten the service during the recent resurgence of the virus. In her recent video about the virus the Bishop, in consultation with the Health Advisory Panel, has suggested limiting the length of Sunday morning services to 30-40 minutes. As part of this music and especially singing are to be limited as well. I will say a bit more about this on Sunday.
    New In-Person Worship Guidelines

    Due to a resurgence of COVID-19 in the Danville/Pittsylvania County area Epiphany has re-implemented certain guidelines for in-person worship.

    Click HERE to view the new Guidelines.
     Please join us for Coffee Hour outside today after the service.

     eNews and Newsletter Deadline:
    In an effort to improve our eNews we need to reimplement a deadline each week for eNews items. The deadline is Wednesday's at noon emailed to Please be concise, about 50 words or fewer or about 4 to 5 lines. If you may need more space than that, please contact Jennifer before the deadline so that we can work together on a satisfactory solution.

    Calling all musicians!  

    Until we know whether or not we got an H1B Visa we are looking for a musician (or musicians) to play on Sunday mornings.  If you know someone who is willing to play,
    please have them contact Carole Holland at 
     or her cell, (434) 203-0852.

    Sacred Grounds Coffee House

    Mid-Week Holy Eucharist Reboot

    Ushers/Greeters Still Needed
    Start Sunday mornings off right by greeting your fellow parishioners and visitors as they arrive. We still need more of you to complete this critical ministry team. No prior experience is necessary, but if you have been an usher/greeter previously please do sign up.

    A link to the online sign-up sheet is here: Usher / Greeter Team

    *Usher/Greeters will serve in pairs each Sunday and will do what ushers have always done - greet people as they arrive, hand out bulletins, count heads, pass the plates, and generally be available to assist.

    * There will be training for the usher/greeter team that will be fun, informative and ongoing.
