What's Hot

Service draws more than 200 people,
collects over $1,300 for crash victim families

The first annual Community Thanksgiving Eve Service and Pie Fest, a cooperative effort by five Elizabeth-area churches, surpassed all expectations when well over 200 people showed up. 

Creekside Community Church hosted the event and had to scramble to set up folding chairs, as more and more people poured through the doors, carrying homemade pies for the pie fest that followed the worship service. 

The other participating churches were Elizabeth Presbyterian Church, Elizabeth United Methodists, Living Water Christian church, and Peace In Christ Lutheran/Episcopal Church. 

The service featured an all-church choir and testimonies of gratefulness by all five of the pastors. In addition, an offering was collected to benefit the three families whose teenagers were killed or seriously injured in the recent automobile accident at County Roads 21 and 154. Over $1,300 was collected and will be distributed evenly among the families.

Following the service, participants gathered for fellowship and to share from about 40 homemade pies of all different varieties that filled the tables in the lobby. The five pastors agreed that this should definitely become an annual event.

Two New Bible Studies Beginning

Dealing with “Apocalyptophobia” – a study of Revelation for men

Bible readers tend either to shy away from this strange volume altogether or get drawn into elaborate and obsessive interpretations aimed at deciphering the events of the future. But now, the EPC men’s Bible study group is facing its fears and beginning a new study of the book of Revelation.

The first of the seven sessions begins Friday, December 2.

Here’s another fear to face. The group meets from 5:30 to 6:30 a.m. (yes, that’s in the morning) every Friday at the EPC office. You can do this. Just bring your own coffee and plenty of it. We’ll have a great time and you’ll still have time to make it to work.

Finding intimacy with God in the busyness of life

EPC’s Grace Connection women’s group will begin a study of this book by Joanna Weaver on Monday evening, January 9th at 7:00 p.m. The plan is to meet two Mondays per month and be done by the end of March.

If you are a woman who would like to lead a life of beauty and balance and find your way to the feet of the master, please join us. We’ll meet at the home of one of the members of our group.

You will need to purchase the book and read the first chapter before our first meeting. For more information, call the church office at 303-646-4825.

These two Bible studies are part of EPC’s ongoing work to help each other grow spiritually, day by day. For more information on Spiritual Transformation as part of the life of EPC, click here.
