Serve at Epikos

Serving is worship

Serving is an act of worship and allows the body of Christ to come together to be the hands and feet of Jesus. At Epikos, our mission is to make more and better disciples. One of the ways we do this is by creating space for those that call Epikos home to grow and pour back into our community. When you serve at Epikos, not only are you serving the Kingdom by serving the church, but you’re also able to meet new people with like-minded interests. Explore how God is calling you to use service as worship at Epikos!
