In EPIC Student Ministries, We want to be an authentic relational community of Christ followers that encourage one another in their faith, serve others before self, and represent Jesus well in the world. EPIC student ministry is here to help students and their families navigate through all of the change that occurs during the middle school and high school years. We weren’t created to engage life on our own, and it is our goal to make sure that doesn’t happen. Here at EPIC, we are intentional, and we have middle school and high school students in mind.
All 9th through 12th Graders are invited t0 join us for a Sunday morning Devos and Donuts from 9:15 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. in the Student Ministry Center.
EPIC is the middle school and high school students’ mid-week program. MS meets from 6:15 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. and HS meets from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the Student Ministry Center. EPIC offers the opportunity to connect with friends, with Jesus, and a committed adult leader who acts as a coach and mentor. The night includes music, a message, and small groups to discuss and apply what they heard.
