Christ Episcopal Church in Tyler has recently unveiled a new program. The Epiphany Group is a two tiered class and or outreach to college and post- college age people seeking a more active spiritual life and a community with whom to connect. Father Matt Boulter (assistant rector of Christ Church) directs the groups, which meet Tuesday night on the campus of UT Tyler, and Thursday nights in the Grelling- Spence Building at Christ Church in down town Tyler respectively.

The Epiphany group’s goal is to explore the concept of community as it pertains to the Christian faith. Father Matt leads the group in an investigation of what it means to live a Christian life and participate in a Christian community in the context of a modern society that seeks pull us in many directions at the same time. The group has both a social component, and more formal one. Meaning there are social outings, local outreach projects and classroom style meetings. Being that Christ Church is an Episcopal Church the classes maintain a loose liturgical form, but all Christians (and non-Christians for that matter) are welcome regardless of denominational affiliation, and would be comfortable with the experience. The group is currently beginning a new study of the book of Galatians entitled “Grace Changes Everything: New Freedom, New Family.”
