Making Heaven more crowded…

Sundays at 9:00am or 11:00am


At EPIC, we strive to be a church that unchurched people love to attend. When you come to EPIC, you will feel at home, no matter what age or stage you are in life. When you come to EPIC Church you will quickly find a warm, friendly group of people committed to making church exciting, life-changing, and enjoyable. Each Experience at EPIC will include dynamic teaching, powerful worship and great programs for kids. Our EPIC Kids area is a safe place where children (birth-5th grade) will enjoy an interactive experience that is specifically designed for them.
Our attire is casual, but you can dress up if you feel more comfortable. Located in our foyer area, our EPIC Cafe is a great place to grab a cup of coffee and get any questions you may have answered. Each experience is approximately 60 minutes in length. Our prayer is that you will experience God in each experience, not just the first time, but every time.

  1. We are willing to do anything short of sin to reach people.
  2. We exist more for the people outside of the church than the people inside the church.
  3. We are a church for anyone, but not for everyone.
  4. We will never be too big…or too small.
  5. We are going to say no more than we say yes.
  6. We don’t want you to like everything about our church.
  7. We view everything as an experiment…so failure is an option.
  8. We believe that playing it safe is actually risky.
  9. We pray like it depends on God and work like it depends on us.
  10. We believe that God deserves our best and anything less is unchristian.
