EPIC Families—

One thing we’ve been uniting around as an EPIC Team is that the church is the church, gathered or scattered. Gathering physically is an incredible gift; but we’re also grateful for ways to gather virtually while that isn’t possible. (As a reminder: all regular, in-person EPIC gatherings are currently cancelled until further notice.) We firmly believe social distancing doesn’t need to be relational distancing or spiritual distancing. So in this time, we want to stay connected with your student, and give them a few ways to continue engaging with God, us and each other!

Update for you

Sept 28, 2020

For the past 5 years, Phil has loved and led our EPIC community in so many incredible ways. A lot of you also know a huge piece of Phil’s heart and gifting, among many others, is worship leading. After a lot of prayer and discernment, Phil feels called to transition into the role of Worship Leader at University Carillon.

As Phil transitions out over the next few weeks, Holly will be stepping in as the Youth Pastor, and will continue to work alongside an amazing team with Kris, Angel and Brandon!

The changes are bittersweet, but we’re genuinely excited to see God doing a new work in so many ministries of the church, and can’t wait to see what He has in store. We’d love if you joined us in praying over, celebrating and anticipating this next season as an EPIC family! As things move forward, don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions.

June 29: EPIC Summer Update—Converge, MS Camp

June 29, 2020

As we’ve continued to pray, process and pay attention to the reality of COVID-19 in our community, we have a few updates regarding Converge and MS Camp this summer. Check it out!

May 27: No Wednesday Worship

May 27, 2020

No Worship Wednesday tonight, but we encourage you to check out last week’s! After a few songs of worship, Phil and Casey brought in their friend Kyle for a conversation about the need for racial reconciliation, and the way that need is close to God’s heart. As this need continues to be all the more fitting, we encourage you to listen in. —interview starts 28:40.

“As Christians, we understand that God made all people and all people have value. There’s a very specific reason He made us all different.

…And then you think about how the Bible often describes the church as a body. And when you think of a body, it has different parts—head, hands, feet, toes—everything is different. Can you imagine a body walking around with all hands? Or all feet? Or all heads? Like, that would be terrible. There is beauty in being individuals and who we are, but there’s also an important piece of embracing uniqueness.

…if you believe the things God does are wonderful and perfect, then you have to look at yourself and say, “Man…if I’m around all hands, I’m missing out. And other people are missing out.”

Colossians 4:18, Daily Devo

May 19, 2020

Today’s scripture: Colossians 4:18 • Hudson

Last Colossians devotional and we’re excited to finish with a STUDENT TAKEOVER! Hudson finishing us out by reflecting on Paul’s story and send-out message in Colossians 4:18: “Remember my chains.”

“The way Paul was freed from his chains reminded me of a time, a little over a year ago, when I broke my knee-cap. I was stuck in bed for a while…I was in crutches for over a month, and not gonna lie, was starting to lose some faith in God. …I remember when my faith was restored. I was “crutching” around the park with my friend, and these two girls came up and asked about my knee. …and they asked, “Can we pray for you?” And it helped me to have my faith healed. It didn’t take the crutches off my arms, but it took the crutches off my mind and my heart to get my faith back.”

Questions to think about:
– Has there been a time when you’ve been freed from your chains?
– What in life has caused you to forget God’s grace or be pulled from it?

Colossians 4:14-17, Daily Devo

May 18, 2020

Today’s scripture: Colossians 4:14-17 • Sarah

It’s another STUDENT TAKEOVER! Great words from Sarah, pressing into who on earth Demas is (and how we probably relate to him) and the power of serving faithfully. Grab your Bibles and join us!

“I think there’s one thing that’s certain…what God has for us is so much better than what the world has in store. So when things do get tough…it’s easy to just abandon what God has for us. But there’s so much more when we stay with Christ & what He has for us.”
