bethesda EPIC 50s&60s

EPIC stands for “Experienced Persons in Christ” and is a ministry for people in their 50’s & 60’s.  

We strive to provide opportunities for spiritual growth, fun, fellowship, and service.  We also address topics that are unique to this stage of life including leaving a legacy through grandparenting, serving the Lord in retirement, the empty nest, aging, and support for parents whose children have walked away from the Lord.   

Look below to see the upcoming activities that those in their 50’s and 60’s are enjoying through the Bethesda EPIC ministry. For information about ongoing life groups, social events and service projects not listed below, contact Heily Young at 916-207-4411 or by e-mail at


New Ministry Opportunity!

The EPIC 50’s & 60’s group is excited to announce our newest endeavor! 

We will be providing opportunities to serve at Providence Assisted Living Facility in Smithfield, NC. The facility currently has 20 residents. They would like us to share Jesus, spend time with the residents and provide an ongoing partnership. The facility is open to visitors of all ages, so you can bring your children and grandchildren to visit as well. 

Feel free to drop in and visit the facility anytime. Let the staff  know you are with Bethesda Baptist and would like to spend time with the residents. If you have additional questions or would like to see if there are any additional needs at the facility the day you are planning to visit, you can contact the following Providence staff member, Mary, at
