Whether you’ve attended church your whole life or never stepped foot in one before, we know it’s not easy visiting a church for the first time. Where do I go? How should I dress? How long does it last? What about my kids?
We want your first experience at Epic Church to be relaxed, and for you and your family to enjoy the service. So, here is some information to help you know what to expect:
WHAT COVID SAFETY MEASURES ARE IN PLACE?
Throughout this pandemic, our heart has been to create a safe environment for all guests of Epic Church. As we all navigate the impact of Covid, here are the current safety measures we have in place each Sunday for in-person worship services:
- As of Tuesday, November 23, masks are required in all public, indoor spaces in Erie County. As a result, we are currently asking every person to wear a mask while indoors at Epic Church.
- The building will continue to be cleaned and sanitized prior to Sunday and in between services.
WHAT TIME ARE THE SERVICES?
Epic Church meets every Sunday for in-person services at 9:00 & 10:30am. Each service lasts 60 minutes and we encourage you to arrive a few minutes minutes early, especially if you have young children. This will give you plenty of time to get your children checked into Epic Kids and for you to find a good seat in the auditorium prior to the service starting.
WHAT SHOULD I DO WHEN I GET THERE?
When you arrive at Epic Church, you’ll see signs that will let you know you’re in the right spot and plenty of parking is available. As you enter the building, our greeters will welcome you and there will be signs pointing you to the main service. If you have children ages birth through 5th grade, just follow the signs to the Kids Check-In area.
If you have questions, just look for one of our team members with a lanyard. They’re easy to spot and always happy to help!
HOW SHOULD I DRESS?
We care more about you than with what you wear, so dress how you are most comfortable and you will fit right in.
WHAT ARE THE MESSAGES LIKE?
Our goal every Sunday is to communicate the teachings of Jesus in a way that is engaging and applicable to your life. You will find that the messages are practical, easy to understand and grounded in Scripture. You can check out past messages HERE.
WHAT ABOUT THE MUSIC?
Our goal is to worship with music that is marked by heart, passion and excellence. Epic Church features a live worship team each week with guitar, bass, keyboard, and drums.
WHAT’S AVAILABLE FOR MY KIDS?
Epic Church offers a safe and exciting children’s program during the worship service for your children (6 weeks to 6th grade) called Epic Kids.
As you approach the service, you will see the Epic Kids check-in area. There you will meet one of our fully-trained and background-checked Epic Kids Team members who will help you check your child in.
During check-in, you will receive a receipt sticker, which you will need to pick up your child after the service. For the security of your children, it is important that you keep track of your receipt sticker. This helps us know that you are the person authorized to pick up your child.
Epic Kids is staffed solely by members who have been background checked and receive ongoing training to make your children’s experience the best it can be!
During Epic Kids, your children will experience fun Bible lessons, activities and games to help them build a spiritual foundation.
First Time Families can pre-register their kids prior to Sunday to save some time at check-in [REGISTER HERE]
WHAT’S AVAILABLE FOR STUDENTS?
At Epic Church, we have weekly groups for junior and senior high students. We also encourage students to get involved through serving on the Dream Team. There are plenty of opportunities to make a difference, whether it’s on the Production Team, Kids Team, Set Up Team and more!
WHAT’S AVAILABLE DURING THE WEEK?
Epic Groups are groups of 8-15 people who meet together to have fun, grow spiritually and build healthy relationships.
