Dear EPC, The Interim Pastor Search Committee is excited to announce that Pastor Becca Jordan-Irwin will be joining us as our Interim Pastor! Pastor Becca currently lives in Monument, Colorado with her husband Dave.

These valuable traits along with a Doctor of Ministry from Fuller Theological Seminary make her well equipped and a wonderful fit for our EPC family.

EPC Announces Limited In-Person Worship Starting February 7

The following statement from the EPC Session was released Saturday, January 9, 2021. We would like the EPC congregation to know that Session has approved a motion that will allow the church to open for face-to-face worship services in a limited fashion starting February 7.

However, Session feels that by limiting the number of people allowed to attend to a lower number than is even recommended by the State of Colorado and by mandating masks and social distancing that the church can lower the risk of transmitting to a level that can be accepted by those who personally decide to attend. More information will be sent out in the weeks ahead about how to register to attend and what safety procedures will be instituted to reduce risk. We ask for your ongoing prayer and support as we make this ne
