Dear Epiphany Family,
Three years ago we very intentionally asked questions about what God is calling us to be about in these next few years and beyond. We gathered a group to facilitate this discussion and we collected your input. The result is a new mission statement, logo, and strategic direction. The next step is to prepare this facility to help us realize new levels of ministry to one another, to create new opportunities to reach our community, and to become a stronger witness to God's love to all who encounter this church.
Vision 2020 is setting us up for great ministry. Already we have added the third worship service. We are focused as we Walk the Journey, Worship the Christ, and Witness with Joy. We know that we can do this even better.
Now is the time to make many of the desired improvements to our facility and grounds, one of the main areas of ministry identifed by Vision 2020. Situated at end of Monument Avenue, we have received a great location from which to bear our light to the greater Richmond metro area. With the improvements we share here, there is confdence among our leadership that we will:
- Expand our welcome and inviting areas. This will help guests fnd connection here and it will allow all of us to grow in our relationships with one another. It will also bring greater visibility to our outreach and faith formation ministries.
- Increase our office space so that our staf can work together more efectively and have space that facilities their work.
- Enhance and expand meeting and classroom space. We have run out of space on Sunday mornings and the need for this is now critical.
- Renovate and retrofit the facility to better serve. When people unfamiliar with our church look at our ministry space they say it feels "well used". The time is now to renovate before it gets rundown and unusable.
This website will share more about how we will accomplish all of this. There is a confdence among the leadership that the result of this project will have us growing in numbers, strengthening our witness, and expanding our work together. We are excited to see what all God has in store for us as we Brighten Our Light.
