Epiphany’s Sunday school consists of one class for ages 5 to 13 with younger children welcomed if accompanied by their parents. It meets on Sunday mornings in the parish hall. Most recently the class has studied the Episcopal Catechism and has moved on to lessons from the Episcopal Children’s Curriculum.
A new program at Epiphany, Sunday Chats, takes place the second Sunday of each month following the Holy Eucharist service as part of the coffee hour embellished as lunch. The chat takes place with a parishioner knowledgeable in the topic being considered or a guest involved in a timely activity such as the resettlement of refugees.
The Silent Prayer group meets every Sunday at 2pm in the church hall. This group is inspired by the Quaker tradition of meeting together to pray in silence.
A half-hour devotional service based on the Taize model of chants, prayers, Bible readings and silence takes place on the third Wednesday of each month at 5 o’clock in the parish hall. The service uses the book, “Songs & Prayers from Taize.”
Breakfast Bible Study
Going back more than two decades, Epiphany’s weekly Bible study is held on Thursday mornings at 7 am and begins with a breakfast provided by the participants. It began as a study for men but then became co-ed. “Our study is informal, and the participants have a lot of fun relating the biblical text to modern life,” says the longtime teacher Fred Phillips, a New Mexico Tech professor emeritus.
