eNews For The Week of September 27, 2020
Epiphany is building a team of walkers to participate in the CROP Hunger Walk taking place Sunday, October 4, at 3:00pm and we need YOU!
The CROP Walk is a fundraising event benefitting Church World Services and God's Storehouse. Our team of walkers will meet in Ballou Park (across the street from McDonald's). We will wear our masks and keep a safe distance from one another. The goal is to walk from Ballou Park to Epiphany and return to the Park. We will have water and restroom facilities available at the church.
If you would like to join us in our walk to stamp out hunger, please register online HERE or contact Evie Jackson (434-489-6736) or Laura Sadler (434-770-8367). You can help us reach our goal of raising $1,000 by making a cash donation or writing a check to CWS/CROP. Please indicate in the memo line that you are part of Epiphany's team. Mail or hand deliver your donation to the church. You can make an online contribution HERE. If you have any questions, please contact Evie or Laura.
Re-Gathering: Keep an eye on your inbox this week for a special eNews regarding the re-gathering.
Parish Oral History Project:
As Fr. Jon has been saying for a few weeks now he would like to begin a parish oral history project and is looking for a few beta testers to help get things started. The platform we will use is the StoryCorp Connect web based platform. If you have a device that connects to the internet that has speakers, camera and a microphone you can be a Guinea Pig for the project. Fr. Jon is looking for 3 to 5 folks to volunteer to go first. Please contact him directly at
Contemplative Prayer: Join Drue this Tuesday at 7:00pm via Zoom for Contemplative Prayer.
Forward Day by Day: Daily devotional books for August/September/October are now available in the parish lobby. Stop by anytime Monday - Thursday from 9:00am - 4:00pm to pick up your copy.
Zoom: As a few of you have experienced, sometimes it can be difficult to get onto the Zoom call on Sunday morning’s. Here are some ideas that may help.
* Try logging-in early using the link in the email we send each week. This will give you some time to “troubleshoot” if there are issues. The 5 minutes or so before we begin has been a time when folks like to say hello to one another and chat a bit. Join Us!
* If using the email link doesn’t work the first time, try closing your Zoom app or browser and then trying the link again.
* If neither of these work try manually typing in the Meeting ID # into your browser or the Zoom app. Sometimes this will work.
As I’m sure we all know technology can be frustrating at times and sometimes that‘s when we most want it to work.
