The Church of the Epiphany has supported Fran Boyle and her ministry to Sudan for over a decade. Fran has always focused on supporting education among Sudanese people who will return to their homes and make a difference there. In the past four years, her ministry has expanded to include a health clinic, a school, and an orphanage for children redeemed from slavery in Akuak Rak.
This year, Church of the Epiphany is offering a new and exciting Epiphany Sports Camp at Coates Elementary School in Herndon from August 5-9 from 8:45 am to noon each day. This camp (Vacation Bible School) will incorporate teaching, small groups, and lots of soccer drills and games.
For many, the term “women’s ministry” conjures up all kinds of impressions of bulletins and websites with cuddly puppies or bake sales. For others, it’s the memory of frowning church ladies every Sunday. At Epiphany, the ministry is to provide a means for the Women of Epiphany to reach out to their neighbors and friends and introduce them to Christ in a friendly, familiar environment.
The Ark has landed! I am happy to report that Epiphany is dry. After the carpets are cleaned today (Tuesday June 18), we will be ready to reset the sanctuary chairs and other things that we had to shift out of the way of the water.
Fr. Peter Frank preaches on Galatians 1.11 – 2.10 in the second part of Church of the Epiphany’s sermon series on Galatians. This sermon was preached on June 9.
With all the connections we have to information it still seems the most important connection eludes us. There’s no way to Google “God’s will”. We pray and sometimes get no answers. We are diligent in having a daily quiet time, but often our search of the Bible gives us the specific direction we want. Knowing the will of God can be an exhausting business…. or maybe not.
