We will also have a family night at Epic church in Lowell on Friday night, October 1st at 7:00 PM. Epic is located on the north side of I-85 at exit 22. The church is located next door to the Indian Motorcycle dealer. Bring snacks and be prepared to have a good time. If you have any questions, call Ray Collins at 704-608-1740. Smile
