Our History

Epiphany Lutheran Church celebrated it’s 50th Anniversary this past January. It was born when four families met together on Epiphany Day, January 6, 1964 with a desire to start a Lutheran Church in Chandler, AZ.

With a modest beginning, they held their first service on February 16, 1964 in the Chandler Women’s Club on North Colorado Street. The early services were led by Pastor Thomas Jacobsen. Services were later conducted in Chandler Junior High School from August 1964 to August 1968. In November 1964, the property at 800 W. Ray Rd. was purchased from the Knox family. The church and small fellowship/administration building were dedicated on October 29, 1968.

Since the early days, Epiphany has been a vital part of the Chandler community through service and spiritual renewal. We continue to serve through many outreach events and through our own Ray of Light Christian Preschool.
