Epiphany Team and Jimmy Riggs

I know that we are delayed in our blog but we have had a lot of guests and have been busy and sick some of the time.  So, hopefully we can start to catch you up a bit but if some sounds like a repeat it is because highlights were in the June newsletter. 

Jimmy Riggs served here from June 6 until July 6.  He used to attend Epiphany UMC in Md. so he knew the two pastors that came with the youth team when they arrived on June 22.  They stayed until July 4.  From left to right below:  Tyler, Olivia, Pastor Scott, Noah, Natalie, Josie and Pastor Lisa.   Jimmy Riggs with Josiah in the middle picture.

They (including Jimmy) accomplished a lot of hard work while they were here including digging some of the soak away for the Epiphany Transition Home, and clearing around the home and painting most of the outside of the Epiphany home along side of our kids.  They did some manure runs (this was Jimmy’s favorite!), participated in the COZV talent show, and prepared the Sunday worship service and communion.

They led the dedication ceremony for the Epiphany home. The dedication was followed by traditional dancing and a delicious braii.

I almost forgot that a big hit for the small children was new pajamas.  Especially since it is winter and the nights are cold!
