Epiphany Lutheran Church (now All Peoples Gathering Lutheran Church), built in 1906, is an outstanding example of Neo-Gothic Revival architecture. It was designed and constructed under the auspices of local architect John Roth, Jr. In 1925, a social hall addition was completed, designed by another local architect, Hugo Haeuser. Epiphany underwent significant social and economic changes through the years, eventually disbanding in 1991 and passing 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.
