Sunday Nights — 4-6:30PM
A space for high schoolers to belong, discover Jesus, become like Him and have a blast doing it (usually while playing dodgeball or hanging in the Game Room!). Each month, one Sunday gathering will be a Worship Night, and one night will be Bible Study & Breakfast Wars night…other Sundays, we’ll gather as normal for hang time, message, open EPIC Cafe and small groups.
Large Group Meetings — every other Sunday 4-6:30 PM
spring 2023 (beginning in February)
This spring we’ll still be gathering as a HS EPIC community weekly…so that’s not changing! But how we gather will look different every other week. Our normal large group gatherings — Sundays from 4-6:30PM — will still be happening, but (beginning in February) only every other Sunday.
On the weeks we’re not gathering as a large group? We’re excited to gather in “Life Groups” on a few different days / times, co-led by staff and some amazing old EPIC students.
Our heart & hope is always to create spaces for students to experience Jesus, and find His fullness of life in the messiness, craziness, struggle and fun of their real lives. And there’s just something about small groups doing life together that seemed to be a major way Jesus wanted people to experience Him best! (When you think about it, Jesus basically called a small group — His 12 disciples — to eat with, learn from and do life with Him.) So we want to try out making that part of the regular way we gather this semester.
Every other week, we’ll be eating some delicious food (parents, that’s one place we’d love your help!), having fun, growing in community, and spending time in scripture & prayer together. We’re also excited to have the freedom to do some extra events / creative gatherings this semester, too!

WHAT IS SLACC?
SLACC is a team of high school leaders who are pursuing Jesus, and want to serve and form lasting connections with the next generation of middle schoolers walking through our doors. Practically, that looks like SLACC Team serving on Wednesday nights for our Middle School gathering: whether that’s through Hype Team, in the Cafe, helping with small groups, or whatever else is needed. SLACC dues are $20 yearly (includes T-Shirt and random events).
Note: serving on SLACC does count for Bright Futures hours! But our heart for SLACC is not that to have a team for middle school crowd control, but a team of leaders learning to follow Jesus (not perfectly but intentionally) who want to help younger students do the same. Because of that, SLACC leaders must be plugged into the life of the HS EPIC community to be part of the team.
The SLACC time commitment on Wednesdays is 5-8:30PM, 2+ Wednesdays per month.
WHO CAN BE PART OF SLACC TEAM?
Incoming high schoolers who
– are/will be plugged into the High School EPIC community on Sundays
– wants to grow in your relationship with Jesus
– has a heart for loving & learning to lead younger middle school studnets
– has some free time most Wednesday nights (5-8:30PM)
HOW DO I JOIN?
There’s a SLACC Interest Meeting every fall. If you miss that, reach out to Holly directly (email@example.com) so we can fill you in and get you an application!
