Student Ministry End-of-Summer Bash: In lieu of our normal Teasdale program on Sunday, August 17, our two interns are planning this event, which will be at First EPC, 6:00 p.m.-9:30 p.m., and includes competitions, an ice cream bar, and a movie. Mark your calendars!


Student Ministry Fall Preview: Join us for our Open House, Wednesday, August 20 from 6:00-7:30 p.m. in the Summit to hear about the upcoming program year. If your high school student is contemplating participation in the Mission Trip for 2015, attendance is very important at this meeting, as beginning this year, our mission program requires an earlier commitment and sign-up than in the past.
