Our church is named for the Feast of the Epiphany which falls on the church calendar on January 6th. The Feast of the Epiphany celebrates the gift of God’s light in the person of Jesus Christ.
In the second chapter of the gospel of Matthew (Matthew 2: 1-12), we hear of the visit of the three wise men to the infant Jesus. The wise men came from lands far away following a star, trusting that God would lead them to something great and wonderful. They came bearing gifts and rejoiced when they met and worshiped the infant king, Jesus. The wise men represent the whole world coming to Jesus. This visit of the wise men to the infant Jesus is celebrated on the Feast of the Epiphany, January 6. The word “epiphany” means manifestation, showing or revealing. In that place God’s light was manifested, shown and revealed to the nations.
Here at Church of the Epiphany we give thanks for God’s good gifts in our lives. We celebrate the light given to us in the person of Jesus Christ.
Our mission is to celebrate the light of Jesus Christ, proclaim the Gospel, deepen our faith and nurture and encourage one another.
When they saw the star they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy;
and going into the house they saw the child with Mary his mother,
and they fell down and worshipped him.
