Sunday Morning Worship Service

10:00 AM

Thank you for visiting our website!

Marina is a city that is at the crossroads of our county and one of the most diverse cities in the nation. The opportunity to meet so many people, from so many places adds adventure and fun to our community. As one of your neighbors, we would like to take a moment to introduce our special community within Marina - Epiphany Lutheran & Episcopal Church.

We are a true blend. Diversity for us is more then a culture or ethnicity. It is the way of our faith life. With both the Lutheran (ELCA ) and Episcopal Churches coming together under one roof, we truly express diversity in our walk of faith.

We do not always see the world through the same eyes of experience, so we search and celebrate the faith touchstones that can bring us to a common place of experience. Our Sunday Worship and experience is a blend of historical traditions, world wide community, contemporary music, as well as prayer and fellowship of other sojourners, all with a focus on the integrity of our blended community.

What will you see at Epiphany? Our average Sunday worship is about 45 people, in a small chapel (Church membership is over 100 and growing. But, not everyone comes every Sunday). However, the chapel is still large enough, that if you want to be quietly unnoticed and check things out, you can. Music that is contemporary (not Praise), with a choir that will amaze you. We do not seek perfection in the worship, we celebrate our gifts. Some people dress casual and some in their Sunday best. You will see a community dedicated to community service and making our world a better place. We strive for excellent preaching every Sunday (We realize that even the preacher can not reach perfection every Sunday). However everyone will welcome you, and we can promise that you can be you; the whole you.

  • Elrose (Candy) Myers Owen - Service - Saturday July 14th 2 PM at Epiphany Church

    Elrose Katherine Myers (Candy Owen) died peacefully on June 26, 2018 at her Marina, CA residence, attended by her two sons, daughter-in-law, husband & his step daughter.   Candy was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in 2012.

    Candy’s mother, Elrose Randall, married Jerome Cox in 1939, after Jerome was widowed. Together, they had three children:  Ferris (Randy), Elrose (Candy) and Anita, plus Jerry, Jerome’s son from his first marriage.

    Candy was born in Indiana in 1941. She grew up in Columbus, Ohio attending OSU until marriage to her first husband, Clayton Lee Myers in 1964. 

    Sons Christopher and Michael were born in 1965 and 1969. 

    Although the marriage was not dissolved until 1977, Candy was in effect a single mother when she started her hospitality career in 1974 as Assistant Director of Big Sky Resort Sales in Montana.

    Her career took her to Vail, Colorado in 1976, where she worked in hospitality until 1989, including as General Manager of the Vail Athletic Club, Restaurant & Lodge. 

    A moveto Monterey in 1989 brought her closer to her sons.  She was shaken by the Loma Prieta earthquake, and stirred by Mike Owen (who she finally married in 1994).

    Candy did sales and marketing for Monterey Hotel and Carmel Valley Lodge.  She also created The Monterey Bay Menu Collection, which was used by 77 hotels and Inns around the Peninsula.  

    Candy received Congressional recognition as the 1997 Citizen of the year, served on the Board of Directors for the Monterey County Convention and Visitors Bureau, and was Senior Warden of Epiphany Lutheran and Episcopal Church Marina.

    Her community volunteerism earned Candy awards and recognition from the Monterey Peninsula School District, Marina Chamber of Commerce, Marina Economic Development Commission, The Buddy Program, and a number of other community nonprofits. 

    As she wished, Monterey Bay will receive her ashes from family at a later time.  

    The charity most dear to Candy’s heart is the Epiphany Children's Christmas Gift Program.  Checks can be made out to Epiphany Church and mailed to 425 Carmel Ave., Marina, CA 93933.  On the memo line please note: Christmas Program-Candy Remembered. 

    Candy is predeceased by her parents and brother, Randy Cox.  

    Candy is survived by her husband, Mike Owen, brother, Jerry Cox, sister, Anita Hunt, sons, Christopher and Michael Myers, daughter in law, Ann Myers, and grand-children Cory and Charlie Myers.  She is also survived and will be missed by a host of step-children, cousins, nieces, nephews, ‘grandchildren’ and friends — because to know Candy was to be considered ‘family’. 

    A reception will follow the service with light refreshments and a few golden oldie selections by Candy’s son, Michael Myers.
