EPIC meets at Ripken Stadium (873 Long Drive) on Sunday mornings at 9:30 and 11:00. We meet on the Club Level with service happening on one side and kid’s ministry (birth-Grade 5) happening on the other side. There is plenty of parking, signs to direct you where to go, friendly people to help you, and a fun and safe environment for kids. Our services are about an hour. We hope you will join us.
We encourage you to join us this Christmas season at Ripken Stadium (club level) on Sunday mornings at 9:30 and 11:00 and on Christmas Eve at 8:45, 10:00, and 11:15. Doughnuts and coffee, a fun and safe environment for kids, Christmas decorations, great music, and relevant messages.
Most of us hate to wait. We don’t like long lines, slow internet and traffic. Yet life is full of waiting…we are waiting for resolution in a certain area, waiting for Mr. or Mrs. Right, waiting for the next big thing to happen, waiting till we have more money, waiting for our marriage to turn around. Waiting and longing describe our lives and hearts quite well much of the time. Join us this Christmas season as we discover hope in a world full of waiting.
Fall Fest 2017 is October 31st from 6-8PM at Ripken Stadium. It is the place to be on Halloween! Trunk-or-Treat, tons of candy, giant slides, wipe-out challenge, trackless train! A safe environment to get lots of candy, show off your costume and have a blast! If you want to donate candy or sign up to do a trunk please email Deb ().
In 2017, we are sending 5 teams around the world! We hope to create a culture at EPIC marked by a passion for lost, a desire to go to unreached and unengaged people groups around the world, a commitment to share the Gospel, and a passion for the glory of God among the nations. We are sending 2 teams to South Asia along with teams to Mexico, the Dominican Republic, and MFuge (a middle-school mission experience).
There is still time to be a part of one of these teams! The trip to Mexico still has open spots but you must apply soon.
This years Women’s Retreat will be held at Black Rock Retreat Center. This is an opportunity for the women of EPIC Community Church to have a time of fellowship, rest, spiritual growth, encouragement, and most importantly to spend time with and learn more about Jesus through the book of Ephesians.

If you are around EPIC for a few minutes you see and hear a phrase repeated often, Not to Us. It comes from Psalm 115:1, “not to us, O Lord, not to us but to your name give glory…” In a selfie-culture dominated by self-promotion, we want to be a people who declare “Not to Us.” We are here not for our glory but for the glory of One much greater, God. We are encouraging everyone at EPIC to stop at 1:15PM every day and pray. Its a way for us to collectively turn to God and pray, especially for the church and for our mission in the world. So, set a reminder for yourself and join us at 1:15 every day. Use this time to pray especially for the work of God in your life and in EPIC.
At EPIC, we provide parents an opportunity to dedicate their children and commit themselves to raising their children in the Lord.
At EPIC, a parent commissioning is a public event at which parents dedicate the raising of their children to the Lord. Parents commit to live their lives by the grace of God in such a way as to be a positive example of a follower of Jesus. Dedication before God in the Church means that parents realize that the Church should have a large part in the spiritual growth of the family. The church should know families and their children so that we can give prayer support, assist in teaching, provide opportunities to serve and grow, and provide an environment of encouragement, accountability and grace to help families grow. We love families at EPIC and are committed to providing a great environment for children to grow and learn. We believe that this dedication is more about the parents than the children. It is the parents who are committing themselves today to raising their children in a godly home and pointing their children to the Word of God, to Jesus, and to His Gospel.
