After much prayer and seeking wisdom through our pastors and local officials we have made the decision to gather online only Sunday, March 22nd and March 29th.  This decision is not based out of fear but based on honor and responsibility.  At this time the plan is to resume public on-campus gatherings on Sunday, April 5th.
 
We wholeheartedly believe that God is giving us a unique opportunity at this time in history to reach those that live around us. He is giving us an opportunity to bring light into darkness, to bring hope to the hopeless, and to help meet basic needs of those around us.  Below this statement you will see a button that you can click to download a document we are calling our Neighborhood Action Plan. We are also currently developing a Community Action Plan with some of our community leaders and organizations.  As soon as those detail are finalized, we will get them to you. We are asking that you take seriously the opportunity given to us as a church to be the hands and feet of Christ.  
 
We will keep you informed regularly via email, social media, the Epic Church App, and right here on our website.  Decisions about upcoming events will be made on a week-to-week basis. However, here is what we are certain of at this time:

  • The next two Sundays (March 22 + 29), we will be gathering ONLINE, as one campus.

  • LeadNow Conference 2020 is postponed until further notice.

  • Terraforma is postponed until further notice.

  • Both our RISE Students and SHFT Students environments will meet online (more information to come).

 

Be on the lookout for more information directly from your Small Group Leader regarding the continuation of those small gatherings.
 
We want to encourage you to sign up for recurring giving at www.epicchurch.tv/give.  It is important that we stay obedient to Christ in this area so we can do all in our community that God has called us to do over the next few weeks. 
 
Please stay connected on social media (@epicchurchtv) as you will get updates on services, how we are reaching the community, and all weekly events there first.  
 
We
 LOVE YOU EPIC!  We are praying for you!
Let's commit to stay connected!!
