Outreach

Mission Statement

 “In response to the grace and love we have been given in Christ, we seek to serve our neighbors. Our commitment is to provide opportunities for The Church of The Epiphany to reach out locally, nationally and globally so that we may grow, mature and become more fully the people Christ calls us to be. We pledge to be careful, open and willing stewards.

The Church of the Epiphany supports the Conejo Compassion Coalition

 

On the second Tuesday of the month, Epiphany caters the LSS Meals & Shelter Program (formerly Conejo Valley Free Meal Program) at Calvary Community Church through Lutheran Social Services. This has seen a surge of families needing this program and currently over a hundred people line up to be served. We encourage you to be a part of this wonderful program by bringing food ready to be served and either stay to help serve or not; food needs to be delivered to Calvary between 6 and 6:15 p.m.

Call Elizabeth Bryant at (805) 498-4499 for more information.

We are proud to support the Episcopal Relief & Development fund. We host annual, fellowship-friendly fundraisers, such as Shrove Tuesday Breakfast for Dinner, St. Patrick’s Day Potato Bar, the Christmas Cookie Bake Sale and our “Earthly Treasures” Rummage Sale. In addition, Epiphany also participates in the annual Crop Walk which helps raise money to alleviate hunger in the Conejo Valley and around the world. Crop Walk funds raised are distributed to MANNA.

We continue to support MANNA, the Conejo Valley Food Bank. They need non-perishable supermarket items; food, toiletries, diapers, paper towels, detergents. Your gifts are very much appreciated by MANNA’s recipients! Please leave your donations in the basket in the church entry.

Educate 4 Hope

We continue to sponsor children at the Latin Patriarch School in Palestine. The school is supported by St. Matthew’s Church in Zebebdeh and by Educate 4 Hope, through the diocese of Los Angeles. The cost of one child’s education for a year is $700. Thank you for sending children to school each year!

Coats & Blankets for the Homeless

Even though we live in sunny Southern California it gets pretty cold in the winter and especially so if one is homeless. Outreach collects gently used coats, blankets, warm socks and mittens through the end of January in the Founders Room and they are delivered to Lutheran Social Services for distribution.

To all who have supported our efforts – THANK YOU!!
