ANNOUNCEMENTS

Christian Education

Small children have Story, Music and Craft Time during the time they normally spend in the nursery during the church service.  Older children have Sunday School after church; Adult Forum is also after church.


Women's Group

The Women's Group will meet on a Thursday in February (date to be determined) at 7pm in the church library.  We will continue our discussion of Biblical women whose lives speak to the way we live today.  This month we are studying Mary, the mother of Jesus.


Congregational Meeting

Plan to join us on Sunday, January 22nd, for our annual congregational meeting at 11:00am. We will be holding elections for the 2017 year, as well as reviewing the annual report from 2016. Members will have an opportunity to look over the report prior to the meeting.  Light refreshments will be provided.


Book Club

Epiphany Lutheran Church's book club will have its next meeting on Tuesday, January 17th, 7:30pm  at Kristina and Jeff Smith's home to discuss A Street Cat Named Bob:, and How He Saved My Life. New members are always welcome



3rd Sunday Potluck

Join us after service on February  19th  for our next monthly 3rd Sunday Potluck.  Dessert will be provided; please bring a main dish or a side dish to share.  Those whose last names begin with A-L bring a side dish, and those whose last names begin with M-Z bring a main dish to share.  As always, those who help with set-up and clean-up are greatly appreciated!


Prayer Chain

God tells us to “Pray without ceasing.” When we - or those we care about - are hurting, it is natural to call out to God for help. More importantly, He promises to answer those prayers. (“Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you.”) We are all invited to become part of the Epiphany Prayer Chain and/or to send out a prayer request at any time, at pray@epiphlutheran.org. If you wish, you can now add a postal or email address to your prayer request. When a postal (street) address is included, a picture postcard will be sent to the recipient of our prayers. When an email address if given, the same message will be emailed to the recipient of our prayers. An address is not required to submit a prayer request. If you would like to see the postcard, talk to Becki or Sharon.
