Epiphany continues its 30-year history of inter-generational church fellowship, family sharing, community outreach, and individual growth. Over half the actors and families involved are drawn from outside the Epiphany family, providing this ministry a unique opportunity to carry out its mission. The summer musical is self-funded and requires no monetary support from the church. In addition, we support a charitable organization each summer. Combining a free-will offering from the patrons plus a commitment from Epiphany Players, the team annually donates over $2000 to the selected group.
