Welcome to Epiphany!

We hope you can worship with us soon. Check out the rest of our website for more information. Below is a brief guide to what you can expect on your first Sunday morning visit.
 

LOCATION

Epiphany is located at 5515 W. Broadway (FM 518) in Pearland about 2 miles west of Highway 35 (Telephone Rd.) near Bayway Chevrolet. If you are coming from Highway 35 we are on the right side of the road behind Westside Dental. If you are coming from Highway 288 we are on the left side of the road just past Bayway Chevrolet. Just look for the big white steeple.
 

THE WORSHIP SERVICE

We have three Sunday morning worship services; two in the sanctuary in the main building (the one with the steeple) and one in our Family Life Center. 
 
Our 8:00 a.m. service is traditional—incorporating a wide variety of hymnody and liturgical song that shapes and informs our worship life as Lutherans gathered around Word and Sacrament. 
 
Our 10:30 a.m. service is blended—infusing contemporary and classic songs alongside the treasury of Christendom’s hymns and psalms. 
 
The Light worship service is our contemporary service at 10:30 a.m. in the Family Life Center. It is a multi-media worship encounter where people meet Jesus! In words spoken and sung Jesus will be revealed. In stunning graphic images, the redemptive narrative of Jesus will be seen. Environmental worship strives to ignite all of our senses to witness and proclaim the magnitude and mystery of God—Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

 

In all three services God’s baptized people hear and sing about the divine redemption and forgiveness we have in Jesus. We are reminded that we are fashioned in the very image of God—a part of His wonderful creation story. We are nourished, comforted and gifted with Holy Spirit stuff. God comes to His people in worship in amazing grace. As our sacrifice of praise—we make joyful noise with all kinds of instruments and voices—singing the work of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. To God alone be the glory. 
 
The pastor’s messages are taken straight from the Bible. In fact, that is the one thing that our members and guests comment on most … they like the fact that everything that is taught and preached is straight from the Bible. You can find out more about our core beliefs by visiting our “Beliefs Page”.
 

WHAT DO I DO WHEN I ARRIVE?

We know the first time visiting a church can be intimidating so if you have questions please feel free to ask anyone for help. There are two buildings-our main building (the one with the steeple) and our Ascension Family Life Center (the two- story building to the left of the main building). The main building contains our sanctuary, some classrooms, our administrative offices, restrooms and a small kitchen.
 
Our Family Life Center contains our multipurpose gym, our main kitchen, restrooms (both levels) and classrooms (both levels).
 
The 8:00 and 10:30 a.m. services are held in the sanctuary in the main building, When you arrive at the front door you will be welcomed by our greeters. They are there to help you. There is also a Welcome Center straight ahead and to the right as you enter our narthex. Our ushers will help you gather the materials you need for worship and help you find a seat. Restrooms are available down the hall to the left from where you enter.
 
SUNDAY SCHOOL & BIBLE STUDY
There is a dedicated hour of Sunday School for all ages (beginning at age three) which begins at 9:15 a.m. A directory for your child’s classroom (based on grade level) is located at our Welcome Centers. We love having visitors and our Sunday School program does everything it can to help guests feel welcome. Adult Bible classes also begin at 9:15 a.m. The main Adult Bible Class, taught by the pastor, takes place in the Ascension Family Life Center; refreshments are available. Also, don’t worry if you are late. We promise that no one will notice or be bothered by it. This isn’t a round-table, small group discussion—it is just a bunch of people gathering to hear the pastor dig deeply into the Scriptures. The pastor will throw out questions. Some people will give their thoughts and opinions, but don’t worry … you can just sit and listen and relax.
 
For additional adult classes, please check with the Welcome Center and they can assist you.
 

CHILDREN IN WORSHIP

We feel that family should be able to worship together. Children are just as much a part of the church community as adults and we strive to make worship relevant to all ages. Every Sunday worship service at Epiphany has a children’s message. Children are invited to come up to the front and have some fun. Usually we do various object lessons or experiments. Sometimes the pastor or leader tells the kids a great story. Whatever is done, it will help the kids focus on how Jesus matters in their life. It will also help to give them some idea of how the pastor’s sermon is relevant to their lives.
 

CHILDCARE

Children are welcome to attend worship with their families. We know that sometimes parents just need a quiet moment to pray and worship. For that reason, we have a staffed nursery for children ages three and under. The nursery is available during both services and Sunday School. Please note that we provide Sunday School classes starting at age three. All of our childcare staff and Sunday School teachers have been Safe & Secure (Epiphany’s Child Protection Policy) trained and a thorough background check has been done. We want to provide the safest environment possible for children to worship and grow in their faith.
 
Childcare is offered in room 2 in the main building which is located at the very end of the same hallway where the restrooms are located. There is also an infant room located at the back of the sanctuary where parents can stay with their children and still see and hear the service.
 
The ushers will gladly assist you in locating the different areas available for child care.
