Next Coffee & Conversation, July 10
Who are our neighbors? Please come and join the next C&C series, when we will be getting to know our neighbors, right here in our church building. We have invited speakers from Street Sense, the Muslim prayer group, YSOP, and the Twelve Step programs.
We will meet at 9:30am in the Dunlop Room on July 10 & 24, and August 7.


Travel Size Toiletry Items Needed
Traveling this summer? Please share with us your unopened hotel toiletries. We always need soap, lotion, shampoo (no need to bring hair conditioner or mouth wash) or other useful items like toothbrushes, socks, razors, combs, etc.  There is a box in the parish office where toiletries are collected throughout the year. We are grateful for your support of this important ministry.

Calling Committee Communique
Between now and July 10, our writers' group has graciously taken the reins on fleshing out our Parish Profile, and we are extremely grateful for their help. This week, the Rev. Dr. Marge McNaughton visited with us to have a conversation on priesthood. With 34 years as an ordained minister, Marge had a wealth of information to share and gave us new insights on the formation of clergy both in and after seminary. She also ministered to us, and reminded us of both the importance of prayer and the importance of knowing and sharing the joy of the Gospel. May we find a candidate that feels called to serve our unique community, and to lead us with joy. You may reach the Rector Search Committee at  epiphanysearch2015@gmail.com, or ask for us in church.
 
Gracious God, we pray for this parish church and for the Calling Committee as we seek to call a new Rector. Help us to be strong, open, forgiving -- and truthful to those discerning a call to minister in this place. Accompany us on our journey in the knowledge of your love for us and your power to unite us all. AMEN

Prayer & Pastoral Care

Prayer List
We invite you to add those on your heart to our prayer list.
We will pray for them aloud on Wednesdays at our 12:10 Healing Service and will add them to the Sunday list. Contact the church office with the name of the person and what we need to know about them.

Pastoral Care
If you or someone you know is in need of prayer or conversation, please contact the church office. We would rather hear from many than miss the opportunity to connect with someone.
