Volunteer to Serve This Saturday


This Saturday is our Annual Thanksgiving dinner.  We still need members to volunteer to help set up the hall, serve our many guests, and to clean up afterward. This year we expect to serve over 400! To volunteer please contact the church office at (973) 676-8886 or call Kerin Benjamin at (973) 609-0203. All our volunteers say they receive far more than they give from this act of kindness.

Two Bishops to Visit in December

Church of the Epiphany and Christ Church will be blessed next month with the visit of two bishops on consecutive Sundays.  The renowned Bishop of Myra, Bishop Nicholas, will visit us on Sunday, December 6th.  His visit will be highlighted by the special cookies he always brings for children and for the young at heart. The following Sunday Bishop Beckwith will be with us for his previously scheduled episcopal visit to Church of the Epiphany. On that Sunday we will renew our baptismal vows and he will dedicate a shrine erected to remember those who have died of violence in our community in recent years. Do plan to welcome our visiting bishops on Sunday, December 6 and December 13.

The First Noel: A 3-Week Bible Study


Most of us know the Christmas story, or so we think! Join the Pastor for a three-week discussion entitled The First Noel a study of the "Infancy Narratives" from the Gospels that tell us about the birth of Jesus.  The study takes place on Thursdays, December 3, 10 and 17 and it will be offered twice on Thursdays: during the day from 12:30 to 2 PM and Thursday evenings from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM (bring a dish to share for a light supper from 6:30 to 7).

Christ Church and Church of the Epiphany

Established as a congregation in 1868, Christ Church is a place of uplifting worship and music, Gospel-focused preaching and teaching, and community activity and involvement.  Founded as a church for black people in 1905 when few other Episcopal churches welcomed them, Church of the Epiphany has a long and storied history as a place of welcome and center for community involvement. Come walk the path with us as together we seek to follow Jesus day by day.
