OWLS (Older Wiser Laity)
The OWL's ministry strives to create community and fellowship opportunities among the more senior members of our church and the greater area. This active group offers a haven for those in need of any kind of support, whether it be camaraderie or help with life's challenges. The OWLs maintain a welcoming attitude and hope that anyone who shares these goals, whether from Epiphany or the surrounding community, will feel compelled to join. Our gatherings include lunch and programs such as dramatic presentations, musical performances, historical and informational lectures, current events and, card games.
Epiphany Cares is a program that runs in cooperation with the “OWLs” (Older Wiser Laity) program at the Church of the Epiphany. The purpose of the program is to serve our brothers and sisters in the Epiphany community who have a particular need.
Epiphany Cares was established during the Covid-19 lockdown period in response to the need of some of our friends who were sequestered in their homes and feeling separated from the community, including those living in Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing facilities. Volunteers have delivered plants with notes from clergy and provided greeting cards for kind notes from our clergy to be mailed.
We welcome other ideas for service to the community and also welcome volunteers to help out with the program. If you have any questions or ideas, we’d love to hear them. You can reach us through the button below or by calling the church office (818) 991-4797.
