“For I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me. Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.” -Matthew 25:35-36,40
EPIC is a ministry that serves the community of Edmonton by tending to the poor, hungry, sick, imprisoned, elderly, and anyone who thirsts for the everlasting water. EPIC stands for Every Person Imparts Christ, a continuous reminder that Christ has a part in each person. The service seeks to provide for both the physical and spiritual needs of the community. The ministry includes a monthly discussion for members to learn how to introduce others to our Lord Jesus Christ.
We could tell you that it's important to volunteer and serve the most needy among your brothers and sisters because Christ commanded or because the Bible tells us to volunteer and serve.
But we won't tell you that.
What we will tell you though, is that it's fun. It's amazing. You get to connect with not only the people you’re serving, but also those you’re serving with. You'll be with other Christian brothers and sisters having the time of your life. Trust us. And if you don't, ask anyone who's ever served before in different ministries. EPIC is about using your free time and turning it into EPIC times, EPIC friendships, and EPIC experiences.
Take a chance. Do something different. For yourself and for someone else!
