Worship at Epiphany
In worship, God is the center, and we gather to bring our best gifts to offer to the One who created us, claimed us and calls us by name. Each Sunday we gather for worship with Holy Communion at 10:00 am.
Our worship uses an ancient pattern some people call the liturgy. There are four basic parts to worship:
One of the things people will notice on Sunday mornings is how much participation we have during worship. We do lots of sitting, standing, and singing. There are several responses printed in the bulletin everyone says. Lots of other people besides the pastor will lead parts of the worship service.
The reason for this is simple: it hopefully reminds us that it is everyone’s job to do God’s work in our lives.
Commonly Asked Questions
Are my children welcome in worship?
Absolutely! In fact, not only do we welcome children, we warmly embrace them in worship. For parents who desire it, there is a nursery available for infants and toddlers during worship.
Who is welcome to receive Communion?
We believe this is the Lord’s Table, and not our own. Therefore, we practice hospitality at communion. You do not have to be Lutheran to receive communion at Epiphany.
What should I wear to worship?
We have some people that come to church in their “Sunday best,” while others dress very casually. Most people wear business casual clothing. With that said, we don’t believe it’s about what you wear, it’s about worshipping God.
Do I have to give an offering?
While you are welcome to do so, you are not required to do so. We expect our members to fund the ministries at Epiphany.
Will I have to stand up and introduce myself?
No. While you will be greeted by others on Sunday morning, you’re not going to have to stand up and introduce yourself.
Are your worship services “traditional” or “contemporarY?”
While we tend to lean towards the great hymns of the faith, we intentionally choose a wide variety of music.
Faith Formation for all Ages
Sundays at 8:45 am (during the school year) | Nursery Provided
Lutherans have always placed a strong emphasis on continuing to learn and grow in the Christian life. During the school year we gather for Sunday school, called Encounter: Faith! Children begin in the sanctuary with music at 8:45 am. Middle and High Youth meet in our Youth Room with food and drinks to discuss God’s Word and how it relates to their life. Adults meet in the Library for a lively discussion.
