Join us Christmas Eve for one of two services at 4:00 and 5:30 at Ripken Stadium on the club level. This is one of our favorite services of the year. The services are family friendly and we provide childcare for birth through Pre-K. Come early for some cookies. The club level will be decorated for Christmas. The services are a little under an hour. So we encourage you, in the midst of the crazy Christmas season, to set aside a few moments to reflect. There is something surprising about Christmas that has the power to change your life, give you a radical hope and fill your life with joy, especially when those things seem illusive.

On the night of Nov. 28, 2016, terrible wildfires threatened to destroy the Great Smoky Mountains around Gatlinburg, TN. The firefighters, first responders, and many other organizations have done an incredible job in their emergency response efforts, but 700 Structures have been destroyed by the wildfire (over 400 of those fires were homes) and unfortunately lives were also lost.
Now as we look to the future, there are a lot of families who will need our help rebuilding and restoring their lives and the beautiful land we all call home. So we are asking help to restore hope for the victims by providing Christmas for the families. Donations will start now and end on December 18th.

You are shaped by your community and you are better in community. So if you are at all concerned about the “future you” then you need to be in community with other followers of Jesus. You cannot follow Jesus well outside of community! So we encourage you to sign up for a fall community group. Sign up below.
You can also contact Joel Danger, our Community Groups Coordinator, for more information ().
September 11 at 5:30pm we will have our first ever Partnership Meeting. This meeting will be for anyone that has signed the Partnership Agreement. We will pray together, discuss the vision for the upcoming year, and provide an opportunity to talk to the Elders.
At EPIC, we are convinced that we cannot follow God alone or live out His purposes for our lives without others. Therefore, we intentionally enter into partnership with one another. We challenge anyone who calls EPIC home to enter into this partnership by signing a covenant with us. In this agreement, we commit to partner together for one another’s growth, the good of the church, and for God’s mission.
You can learn more about Partnership on our website (here) and on our app (there are 2 sermons and the agreement). If you would then like to become a Partner, you can stop by the Welcome Desk to obtain, sign, and turn in the Partnership Agreement.
LOCATION: Ripken Stadium
FOOD: Ice Cream Bar
WHAT TO BRING: your questions for the Staff and Elders

During the summer as we have one combined service at 10:00am at Ripken Stadium. There is plenty of parking, signs and friendly people to help you know where to go, and a casual environment. During the summer, we will be in a series called “Closer.” One of the amazing realities about God is that he invites us into relationship with Him to walk closely with Him. Throughout the summer, we are looking at the book of Psalms and considering how we can walk closer with God in the various seasons of life.
