Orphan Grain Train

Thank you, Epiphany, for the abundance of grocery bags you have donated!  At this time, we have ample bags for the mats, so grocery bag donations can be directed towards Matthew’s Crossing.

Regular sorting and boxing will take place at the OGT warehouse (1329 N. 29th Ave, Suite E-15, Phoenix) on Saturday September 23rd, 8am – noon.  For September, volunteer opportunities have been expanded to include Thursdays from 9am – Noon on the 21st, and 28th.


Epiphany Quilters

 Are you a crafter and looking for someone to share your interest? Each time the quilters meet they have small projects to work on. Or bring your own and fellowship with other ladies from Epiphany. All meetings are on the first and third Monday of the month from 1-4pm.  The remaining September date is the 18th!


Matthew’s Crossing

Matthew’s Crossing Food Bank and Meals to Grow have a great and continual need for food donations.  Everyday 100+ neighbors in need visit the food bank and each week Meals to Grow sends home 1500 weekend backpack meals to hungry students.  Do you belong to a group, homeowner’s association, etc.?  Please consider scheduling a food drive.  It’s easy!  

Volunteers are needed at Matthew’s Crossing Food Bank, all shifts, 5 days a week.  To volunteer call or text Mike Dippre at 602-295-3091.

Weekly Food Fact:

In the U.S., although rural areas grow most of our food, those living in rural areas are also more likely to face hunger.  For example, 84% of U.S. counties with the highest percentage of childhood hunger are rural.  Globally, two-thirds of all people living in extreme poverty live in rural areas.

Live Stream on YouTube

Each Sunday at 8:30 am, we live stream the traditional worship service on our YouTube channel, “Epiphany Chandler”. The recording is saved and can also be viewed later on YouTube
