Dear Members, Friends and Guests:

  • Wear a mask
  • Practice social distancing
  • Make frequent use of hand sanitizer
  • Stay home if you are sick

It’s About Time

Part 2

Every day we are closer to the end of this pandemic.  Sooner than you think, we will return to our normal schedule and activities.  Are you headed towards overload and burnout?  Or are you ready to apply the lessons of this pandemic and avoid those traps?  

“It’s About Time” is a my 4-part sermon series that began last weekend.  Using the timeless words of the Bible, we are learning how to rebuild our lives with margin so that we can enjoy life with God and reduce the stress that the “new normal” will bring. 

In part 1, we learned how God created us to observe the Sabbath and get physical rest.  In part 2, we’ll discover that you have optimal pace that’s neither slow nor hurried. 


Matthew’s Crossing

This weekend, we’ll hear a brief presentation at all worship services about our local food bank, Matthew’s Crossing.  We have been long-time supporters of this Christian organization and several of our members volunteer.  Matthew’s Crossing has specifically requested cash donations during the pandemic.  During the month of September, we encourage you to give directly via their website (, or you may give a check to Pam at the Connecting Point (made out to “Matthew’s Crossing”), and she’ll make sure they receive it. Information flyers are available at the Connecting Point tables.


Sunday School and Adult Bible Study

The Chandler Unified School District returns to in-person classes for all grades on October 13thAnd that means we will resume Sunday School, in person confirmation, kid’s church and my Adult Bible Study on Sunday, October 18. 

Holy Communion by Private Appointment

Deacon Bob celebrates Holy Communion on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month from 2:00-3:45 pm, and the second and fourth Saturdays from 10am – noon in Room 220.  We kindly ask all communicants to wear a mask.

If you would like to receive the Sacrament on September 24 or 26, please email Pam by 5 pm on Wednesday, September 23 at or call her at 480.606.8045.


Like and Subscribe

We invite you to like and subscribe to our YouTube channel, “Epiphany Chandler”.  An advantage of worship services, kid’s church, and weekly devotions on YouTube is the ability to set notifications when we post new content.  Of course, we will continue to post links to all three on our website.

May God bless you and project you this day!

Joyfully Serving Jesus,

Pastor Mark Rossington
