EPPIC is the name of the youth ministry at Sugar Creek and stands for Experiencing Peace and Power In Christ. Our Sunday evening gatherings are called SNAC (Sunday Night Around Church) and are from 6-8:30 pm. All youth in grades 7-12 are encouraged to come and join us!
The two main goals of SNAC for our youth is to give them a place where they have a sense of belonging, and where they can continue to grow in their journey of faith. We will begin this year utilizing a series that focuses on the Book of Colossians. The teen years are a difficult time to maintain a great self-image filled with high self-esteem. We want to help our youth know and grow in the knowledge that Christ can be our anchor in the midst of the chaos.
- October 22: EPPIC SNAC, 6-8:30 pm
- October 29: EPPIC FUN, 6-8:30 pm. Games at the church.
