David & Teesha Show Fills High School Auditorium.


"An incredible entertainment experience. An unforgettable 
life-changing message."

Thousands have been impacted by this unique and creative way of presenting 
the life-changing message of Jesus Christ.

Since 2002, the internationally recognized illusionists, David and Teesha Laflin have entertained and inspired audiences all across the Unites States and in several foreign countries through their creative blend of both classic and cutting-edge illusions. 

The Elbert County Pastors Coalition brought the show to Elizabeth High School on August 11 at 4:00 pm. Families and children of all ages enjoyed this great show of illusions with plenty of audience participation and laughter.

The high-energy, fast-paced show always captivates audiences. But David and Teesha are quick to point out that everything they do is simply an illusion. "Only God can do real miracles," says David. Through their illusions, the reality of God's love is revealed in a way that really connects with teens and young children – and adults, too! The couple's only goal is to bring families together for an experience they will never forget. An experience that may just change their lives forever. 

The Elbert County Pastors Coalition consists of pastors from Elizabeth Presbyterian Church, Creekside Community Church, Elizabeth United Methodists Church, and Peace in Christ Episcopal-Lutheran Ministry.

EPC folks enjoy another great day at the ball park.

BASEBALL HAS BEEN BERY, BERRY GOOD FOR EPC.

Every year a bunch of us head down to Coors Field for Faith Day. And on June 29, as usual, it was a hoot!

The Rockies beat the San Francisco Giants. After the game, Dexter Fowler gave his Christian testimony. Then came the blowout concert by Christian rockers, Mercy Me. What a great way to spend a day at the ball park with several thousand Christians.

Almost 30 EPC folks showed up this year -- a new record. Some came for the game, some came for the concert, some came for both. But a good time was had by all.



EPC joins fun at Elizabash

EPC REACHES OUT TO COMMUNITY WITH PARADE FLOAT AND BOOTH.

It was a windy Saturday, June 8, on Stampede weekend, and the town was jumping.

EPC had just finished its week of Vacation Bible School and all the kids rode the EPC float in the parade.

Meanwhile, at the EPC booth, volunteers handed out cookies, prayer rocks and informational fliers, and invited passersby to register for two free tickets to Faith Day at the Rockies.

Faith Day, On June 29, features a 2:10 game with the Rockies vs. the San Francisco Giants, followed by a concert by Mercy Me. The lucky ticket winner will be announced soon.

IF YOU'RE GOING TO RIDE THE ELEPHANT ROCK ON JUNE 2,
RIDE IT FOR THE ORPHANS!

As a staunch member of the Zimbabwe Mission Partnership, EPC is working hard to promote the partnership's most important fundraising event of the year! All proceeds from the event will benefit the Heather Chimhoga Orphan Care Center in northeastern Zimbabwe, where the organization is now feeding more than 1,000 children every day! 

The Subaru Elephant Rock Cycling Festival, which takes place in Castle Rock, Colorado, is one of the state's premier cycling events. It's great fun, whether you ride as an individual and go for the century mark, or you ride as a family on one of the shorter routes. And when you ride for Team Zimbabwe, you're not only having a great time, you're helping children who have nobody else to help them. 

TO SEE 2012 TEAM ZIMBABWE VIDEO, CLICK HERE

TO REGISTER WITH TEAM ZIMBABWE, CLICK HERE

After you register, the system will automatically generate a fundraising page for you. You could just "donate" the minimum $150 per rider (covers registration fee, t-shirt, BBQ lunch and after-ride entertainment). But the whole idea is to raise as much money as you can! And it's easy.

Once you have your own fundraising page, all you need to do is email the link to all your friends and relatives, and they'll do the rest. They just click on the link and follow instructions to donate in your name online. You can soup up your fundraising page with pictures and all kinds of fun things – even do like one couple did, making their own insane YouTube video to motivate their friends to donate. 

TO SEE INSANE FUNDRAISING VIDEO, CLICK HERE

AND DID WE MENTION PRIZES FOR THE TOP FUNDRAISERS?

For the individual rider who raises the most money, and for the family that raises the most money, we'll arrange a great summer getaway to Winter Park, with four free nights at the Zephyr Mountain Lodge. 

DO IT FOR THE ORPHANS. 

Even if you don't ride, you can help. If you know anybody who rides, tell them about Team Zimbabwe. And tell them to tell everybody they know. "Like" Team Zimbabwe on FaceBook. Do anything you can to help the cause. Do it for Loveness, a 12-year old orphan who lives with her blind grandmother and tries to take care of her. Do it for the jersey, you'll never see another one like it. Do it for the fun. Do it for the challenge. Do it for Hope. Whatever! But do it!

The Zimbabwe mission Partnership is just one of the ways Elizabeth Presbyterian Church engages in compassionate outreach in its community, the surrounding region and around the globe. For more on the outreach missions of EPC, click here.

Make a New Year's Resolution



Be a soldier in the army of the Lord!

As we go into the new year, it's time to think about how we can each contribute to God's work. Many of our teams at EPC need help. 
  • Our Communications Team needs a web master. 
  • Our Christian Ed Team needs K-5 Sunday School teachers. 
  • Our Building & Grounds Team needs people to help with maintenance and repair. 
  • Our Youth Ministry needs adult volunteers. 
  • Our Missions Team needs a liaison to the Friends for Youth ministry and a liaison to the Zimbabwe Mission Partnership board. 
  • Our Outreach Team needs help representing EPC in community-wide events. 
  • Our Seniors and Family Life Ministries needs help organizing events and developing plans. 
Outside the church, in ministries that are supported in part by EPC, volunteers are also needed. For instance, Alternatives Pregnancy Center is looking for client advocates to counsel and make a difference in the lives of people dealing with unwanted pregnancies. Friends for Youth can always use more mentors for young people in trouble. The Network Coffeehouse needs volunteers who can provide friendship to homeless and mentally ill people in the Capitol Hill area of Denver. For more about these ministries and others, click here.

There are many other opportunities, as well. Are you feeling the call to help in any of these areas or in some other way? If you aren't sure who to ask, call the church office, 303-646-4825, or ask Bruce or Mark.
