This faith community continues to see Christ in our neighbor, siblings 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:
JULY 12, 2020 SCOUT SUNDAY AND “MY PROMISE, MY FAITH” GIRL SCOUT WORKSHOP
We were blessed to welcome so many Girl Scouts and their families from around the country for this event. If you could not join us for the live “My Promise, My Faith” workshop, you can still participate! Our July 12th, 2020 Kitchen Table Gathering worship service for the day and the workshop can be found on our Facebook page.
The recording of the workshop is also posted here and the materials to help your Girl Scout earn her faith pin are available below.
The workshop is approximately one hour. While Christian faith is discussed at the workshop, all are welcome to participate. The workshop covers all five steps to earn the My Promise, My Faith pin, and focuses on the “respect myself and others” part of the Girl Scout Law. Scouts are 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. For the interview portion of the pin, we welcomed 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).
On Saturday, August 22nd at 3:00pm EST we will be hosting a Watch Party on our Facebook page. If you missed our live event, we hope you can join us for this!
Once you complete the workshop and activities, please take a few moments to fill out our Post-Workshop Survey
We hope to offer more of these opportunities in the future.
MEAL PROGRAMS FOR STUDENTS DURING THE SUMMER

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.
