History

Epiphany was first conceived to accommodate the growing westward expansion of Palm Beach County in the mid 1970s. Church land was purchased and construction of the first sanctuary was undertaken. That first building was renamed Seed Hall and with the closing of the Woodlands retreat Emmaus Hall.

The preschool building was completed in 2001. The congregation has announced "planning to plan" a new sanctuary with plans already approved by the governing authorities.
