Sunday Morning Worship Service

10:00 AM

Thank you for visiting our website!

Marina is a city that is at the crossroads of our county and one of the most diverse cities in the nation. The opportunity to meet so many people, from so many places adds adventure and fun to our community. As one of your neighbors, we would like to take a moment to introduce our special community within Marina - Epiphany Lutheran & Episcopal Church.

We are a true blend. Diversity for us is more then a culture or ethnicity. It is the way of our faith life. With both the Lutheran (ELCA ) and Episcopal Churches coming together under one roof, we truly express diversity in our walk of faith.

We do not always see the world through the same eyes of experience, so we search and celebrate the faith touchstones that can bring us to a common place of experience. Our Sunday Worship and experience is a blend of historical traditions, world wide community, contemporary music, as well as prayer and fellowship of other sojourners, all with a focus on the integrity of our blended community.

What will you see at Epiphany? Our average Sunday worship is about 45 people, in a small chapel (Church membership is over 100 and growing. But, not everyone comes every Sunday). However, the chapel is still large enough, that if you want to be quietly unnoticed and check things out, you can. Music that is contemporary (not Praise), with a choir that will amaze you. We do not seek perfection in the worship, we celebrate our gifts. Some people dress casual and some in their Sunday best. You will see a community dedicated to community service and making our world a better place. We strive for excellent preaching every Sunday (We realize that even the preacher can not reach perfection every Sunday). However everyone will welcome you, and we can promise that you can be you; the whole you.

    Holding on to Hope: A National Service for Healing and Wholeness

    Presiding Bishop and National Cathedral Host Live-streamed Prayers on Nov. 1

     

    [October 15, 2020] Presiding Bishop Michael Curry will lead a live-streamed prayer service from Washington National Cathedral, Holding on to Hope: A National Service for Healing and Wholeness, on All Saints Sunday, November 1, at 4:00-5:30 p.m. EST. In the midst of pandemic, racial reckoning, and a historic election, the live-streamed service will gather Americans for prayer, song, lament, hope, and a call to love God and neighbor.

     

    The service will feature an ecumenical and multifaith array of voices, musical offerings, and prayers. Using a combination of live and visually stunning pre-recorded elements gathered from across the nation, the service will be live streamed in English and Spanish.

     

    “The Washington National Cathedral has gathered Americans for prayer at the death of presidents, after terrible tragedies like 9/11, and in moments of joy and hope for our nation and our world,” says Bishop Curry, “As the people of the United States cast their votes for the office of president and many other offices throughout the land, we gather to pray to the God who is the Creator of us all. We pray that we might learn to stand and hold each other’s hands as the children of God.”

     

    In addition to Bishop Curry’s sermon, the service will include reflections from Father James Martin, a noted Roman Catholic commentator on American life and values, and Valarie Kaur, an inspiring Sikh author, filmmaker and civil rights attorney. The gathering will be officiated by Washington’s Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde, Cathedral Dean Randy Hollerith, and Reverend Stephanie Spellers, Canon to the Presiding Bishop.

     

    Prayers for the nation will come from leaders like Eboo Patel, founder and president of Interfaith Youth Core (IFY); Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America; Rabbi Shoshana Conover of Temple Sholom, Chicago; and Shane Claiborne, speaker, activist, and best-selling author. Music from The Coro de la Cathedral of Christ Church Cathedral-Indianapolis and Washington National Cathedral will help to lift and open hearts.

     

    A live prayer hotline in English and Spanish will be open during the service, staffed by Episcopal clergy and chaplains, in partnership with Virginia Theological Seminary and General Theological Seminary. The hotline will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. EST from November 1 to November 5.

     

    Watch the service here.

    A live stream embed code is provided on the web page and available to any congregation that would like to add the stream to their own website or Facebook page. Congregations are invited to host watch-parties as part of their All Saints' Day observance and Election Day preparations.
