A Prayer For This Web Site
Almighty God, you proclaim your truth in every age by many voices; Direct, in our time, we pray, those who speak where many listen and write what many read; that they may do their part in making the heart of this people wise, its mind sound, and its will righteous; to the honor of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
"For those who Influence Public Opinion,"
Book of Common Prayer, page 827

In our church, neither a person's gender nor their sexual orientation matter; what does matter is how they serve Jesus Christ as Lord.

Epiphany Church's Community Memories Web Site

Our handsome church building at 400 East Maple Street in Independendence. Constructed in 1925-26.

Our first church building was constructed in 1873, was located at 8th and Laurel Streets, and now is protected by the Historic Preservation Law.

April 22, 2007 will mark the 135th anniversary of the founding of our church, and we would like to prepare a book outlining our history, both in the Independence community and in the greater Anglican community. Therefore, for the next several months at the least or even longer, this area on the internet is being set aside as a place for YOUR memories and thoughts about the past several years here at the church. We will base our new book -- if we manage to put one together -- on the 1972 book of our 100th anniversary as a parish which was edited by Mr.& Mrs. J.R. Barnett and the 1997 supplement to same which was edited by Roberta Davies and Sally Pokorny.

Your help is vitally needed! If you have any newspaper clippings, books or pictures about the church -- or even just personal memories -- would you please share them with us?

If you can share things with us, we will be extremely grateful, and if you want the materials returned, we will be glad to copy them and return the originals to you. Or, if we can keep the documents, that would be great also. Please give them to Marty E. in the office. If you just have personal memories you want to share, you can type them in right here. Nothing is unimportant or 'not worth' telling us about.

Thanks so much, and Christ be with you!

Patrick Townson
Acting Historian for Epiphany Episcopal Church
