What Does It Mean to Become an Episcopalian?
A number of people call Epiphany their spiritual home, yet they have not made a public commitment to the mission and ministry of our church. When you are ready to make a public commitment to the mission, ministry, and support of Epiphany Church, you are ready to become a member. Membership is moving from the sidelines to the playing field, moving from worshiper to disciple, from spectator to full participant in the life of the church.
Being a member of Epiphany means, first and foremost, that you will gather regularly in worship in this Christian community call Epiphany Church. You will seek to grow in the image of Christ as you deepen your spiritual walk with Christ through education, fellowship and service. It means that you will explore the particular ministry that God is calling you to. It means that you are prepared to help share the financial responsibility of this faith community through pledging a proportion of your income.
Every Spring and Fall, Epiphany offers an Inquirers Class for those looking to learn more about their Parish and the Episcopal Church. The class examines the faith, worship, practices, and governance of the Episcopal Church. It examines also such areas as Bible, church history, liturgy, Christian discipleship, and prayer. The Inquirers Class is offered also as a preparation for those who with to be confirmed, received or reaffirmed into the Episcopal Church.
Attendance to this class does not obligate you to join the church but will better help you in making your decision.
If you have not attended an Inquirer’s class or are relatively new to Epiphany Church, you are invited to attend! Learn about our mission and ministry, and our role within the Episcopal Church and the Worldwide Anglican Community.
