PEP @ EPC (People Enjoying People)


P.E.P., or People Enjoying People, is Eastminster's Senior Adult Ministry that fosters Fellowship, Faith, Fun & Education.  We meet the fourth Tuesday of most months at 11:45 am for lunch and a program. The meals are usually $6.00/person and held in Thompson Hall near the kitchen. Regina and our Kitchen Ministry help to serve a lovely meal.  Past speakers have included  USC archivist and author, Elizabeth Cassidy West, and Rudy Mancke, SC ETV long-time host and naturalist. Recently, we've had the pleasure of hearing from Dr. Douglass Key, Sr. Associate over Discipleship & Administration, as well as EPC members who recently went on a pilgrimage to The Holy Land...

You can view the schedule below. We always end the year with a festive Holiday lunch outing either in late November or early December. We usually travel to the McCutchen House Bistro on the Horseshoe at USC, where we sing carols and enjoy a traditional meal. We also enjoy a few offsite trips to the Ligon's mountain retreat as well as the Fireflies Stadium. PEP events are for people of ALL AGES!

Without a doubt, the biggest appeal about P.E.P. can be found right in the name...We enjoy each other's company and try to schedule speakers who appeal to all ages. Watch our schedule this year, and plan to attend one of our luncheons.  If you need to make reservations , or have recommendations for a topic or speaker, please contact the church office at 256-1654.
