This faith community continues to see Christ in our neighbor, brothers and sisters both near and far, and seeks to find ways of engaging this world in service as an expression of Christ’s love through us. Here are some of the areas where we serve:
SUNDAY, JULY 12 – “MY PROMISE, MY FAITH” GIRL SCOUT WORKSHOP
We will be honoring Girl Scouts of all ages at our 10:30 am Kitchen Table Gathering on Facebook. You can find more information about the service on the Worship page. Scouts are invited to wear their uniform and participate in whatever ways you are able. The service typically lasts 45 minutes.
At 11:45am, we will begin our workshop on Zoom Webinar which will also be streamed on our Facebook page. This workshop will allow your Girl Scout to earn the My Promise, My Faith pin. While Christian faith will be discussed at the workshop, all are welcome to participate. You do not need to be a member of Epiphany or member of any church to attend this event.
The workshop will last approximately one hour. The workshop will cover all five steps to earn the My Promise, My Faith pin, and will be focused on the “respect myself and others” part of the Girl Scout Law. For the interview portion of the pin, Scouts will have the opportunity to ask a question of Bishop Leila Ortiz, the first woman and first Latina serving as Bishop of the Metropolitan DC Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Scouts will also be invited to make a “My Promise / My Faith” booklet and a swap. All the information and list of materials needed for event and activities can be found in the documents available for download.

Since Shepherd’s Table was serving food out of a little house in Silver Spring, Epiphany has been involved in preparing and serving food with this great organization. We serve at Shepherd’s Table throughout the year.
C-4 is a cooperative social justice effort of over 20 local faith-based organizations to serve and minister to families and individuals in need. We contribute to the C-4 Clothes Closet as well as the yearly School Supplies and Holiday Toy drives.
KIVA is a non-profit organization which connects us to people all over the world who need small loans to help them establish business and fight poverty. Our congregation has made 36 loans and continue to re-loan the money from the loans once they are paid back in full.
Grab a ball of yarn, some needles and crochet during worship! Place your project in the basket and pick it back up the next week. Over 2,000 baby blankets, child afghans, and prayer shawls have been made and distributed to area hospitals, fire departments and friends who have endured chemo.
Throughout the year, Epiphany provides food and limited emergency assistance. We also work with local partners to support families during Thanksgiving and Christmas.
