  You Are Invited Blog: The Stewardship Committee gathered the “You Are Invited” newsletter articles, added additional articles and – starting in May – interviews will all the “stewards” of Epiphany. Please visit youareinvited.info, take a moment to read the articles and add your comments.

This Sunday, July 22

Epiphany 101: Wonder why Epiphany is like it is? Why we do what we do? What this space is all about? Join us July 15, 22, 29 & August 5 for four weeks of Epiphany 101! We will talk about what it means to be an Episcopalian, what makes Epiphany particular, how and why we worship like we do, and our service inside these walls and out. You can attend any and/or all, but each class is independent. Join us in the Choir Loft at 10 a.m.
