God dwells in the perfection of beauty (Psalm 50:2) and his holiness is beautiful (Psalm 29:2).
Epiphany is blessed with a collection of God-glorifying art that enhances our worship, lifts the soul, and illumines the multi-faceted beauty of God's holiness, power, and grace.
Hand-carved by renowed Bavarian woodcarver Ludwig Koenninger, the altar cross was part of the consecration of the new sanctuary in April 1976. It is constructed of basswood and represents the Eucharistic prayer, "Christ has died. Christ is risen. Christ will come again."
