The Epiphany Episcopal Church exist to worship God and grow into the image of Christ, while ministering to the people of God. We strive to implement our mission through our ministries, some of which are summarized below.
Women of Epiphany
The purpose of this ministry is to unite the Women of Epiphany (WOE) in a program of worship, study, service, fellowship, and gifts, which will carry forward the missionary, educational, and social service work of the Church, Parish, community, Diocese, the Nation, and the World. The WOE conducts the annual Chari-Tea fundraiser and various worship activities highlighted by Lenten Quiet Day.
The committee is dedicated to feeding and clothing needy and homeless persons in and around the Forestville area. The committee coordinates the provision of abundant food baskets at Thanksgiving and Christmas for deserving families. The Outreach Committee also prepares and serves a hot meal at the Community Café, which is located at the First United Methodist Church in Hyattsville, MD.
The Scholarship Committee is dedicated to providing financial assistance for the educational endeavors of the college bound youth of Epiphany Episcopal Church and the local community. The committee conducts fundraisers to support Prince George’s County youth, who go on to higher education training at such schools as Prince George’s County College, the University of Maryland, Howard University and South Carolina State University.
Buildings and Grounds Committee
The volunteers on this committee help to ensure that the grounds of the church and its various properties are maintained and available to support the mission of the church. The properties of the church include the main sanctuary, Canterbury Hall rentals venue, the cemetery and the Rectory.
Members of this ministry serve God by preparing and tending the place where his people worship. The altar guild is an offeri9ng of time and talents, and ministry of love in the name of Christ. The altar guild duties go on quietly in the background, often unnoticed by the average worshiper. We work with the priest to help make the worship life of the church run smoothly.
