STAY CONNECTED

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!

Off-the-Record Challenge—Holy Week Wednesday

April 8, 2020

For every day of Holy Week, the Bible tells us what Jesus’ did…every day, that is, except for Wednesday. On Wednesday, we have no idea. Nothing is written. The scriptures are silent. Jesus is totally off-the-record.

So tomorrow, our challenge for you is to do the same. In a season where it can be so easy to kill time scrolling on IG, getting lost in endless YouTube trains, and see your screen time climbing (trust us, we get it), we’re challenging you to take a day to spend as little time on screens as possible, and spend a little more time with Jesus.

We know you’ve got virtual school, and we’ll still have a devotional we want you to engage with tomorrow morning! But besides that, we’re encouraging you—take tomorrow to go off-the-record, unplug, and focus on Him.

Holy Week Update

The past few weeks, we have been walking through Colossians together with daily video devotionals. This week, we’re pressing pause. We are focusing on the power of Holy Week alongside our church-wide family! Watch the church website—STAY CONNECTED page—and social media for creative devotionals, song suggestions, activities and guides to walk through Holy Week together, and build up to the celebration of Easter. (Keep an eye on EPIC’s website and social media too for some ways we can engage together as an EPIC community!)

DAILY DEVOTIONALS START TODAY!

Usually, not having enough time is one of students’ biggest blocks to consistently engaging with Scripture. But we know right now, your students probably have more free time (or at least flexible time) than normal! Our heart is to empower them to use this time to create a pattern of regularly meeting with God.

So we want to invite your student to walk through the book of Colossians with us! On Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays @ 9 AM, we’ll be posting short Daily Devotionals (videos from EPIC staff), sharing our reflections, questions and thoughts on the day’s scripture.
