Epiphany Lutheran Church, which is now known as All Peoples Gathering Lutheran Church, was built in 1906. The building, which was designed and constructed under the auspices of local architect John Roth Jr., is an outstanding example of Neo-Gothic Revival architecture with magnificent stained glass windows and intricate woodwork. In 1925, a social hall addition was completed by another local architect, Hugo Haeuser. Epiphany underwent significant social and economic changes throughout the years, and eventually disbanded in 1991, when it passed on its assets to a new congregation, All Peoples. All Peoples serves an ethnically and socially diverse population, reflecting a commitment to inclusiveness and social justice.
Visitors will experience evidence of a vibrant spiritual community with diverse educational, ecological and social justice outreaches. The church’s magnificent stained glass windows and other timeless delights provide the physical framework for a diverse mix of educational, ecological and social justice outreaches. Examples include: Peeps Academy providing enrichment/tutoring support after school; a garden/greenhouse/water reclamation project, which has received awards for its innovation and benefit to the community; a partnership with St. Vincent de Paul to serve dinner to 200+ guests 5 days/week; and a symbiotic relationship with churches in El Salvador.
