If you have an empty nest, have recently moved to the Crosslake area, are looking for new ways to connect with like-minded people, or wonder how you can learn about opportunities to give back to the community, EPIC is a group you may want to associate with.

Our purpose is to create opportunities for fellowship, fun activities, and mission work. We meet regularly over dinner, have devotional time, arrange group activities, and seek mission opportunities.  Watch for the upcoming calendar on this page for the next occasion to join us.

God is working through this group’s life experiences and relationships to build His Kingdom.

StewardShip Tour

The boat leaves from the new public docks located just to the north of the Pine River Dam and the public swim beach at the US Army Corps of Engineers Crosslake Campgrounds.  Plan to arrive at 8:45 AM. 

There is no parking available in the Campgrounds so those going will need to park nearby, perhaps in the parking area on the northeast corner of the intersection of Hwys 3 and 66.  Weather can always impact an event like this and if so, we will need to reschedule.  Weather will also dictate clothing choices — the pontoon is open with a Bimini top over about 1/3 of the deck area.  Sunscreen, binoculars, cameras, hats, and jackets are good to bring along.

Grandpareents are called to a greater level of influence within families. – “Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them fade from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them.” Deuteronomy 4:9-
