Where is God calling you?

  • Children's ministry

    EPLC's Children's Ministry is centered on faith and fun! Sunday School shares the great Bible stories through lesson and crafts. Itty Bitty Bible Camp is for preschool age children. Bibles are given to children in Kindergarten and again in 3rd grade to help them in their faith journey. BLAST is  Wednesdays at 4:30 pm and lifts up themes like this year's "Children of the Bible." Come and enjoy! Grow in faith!

  • Youth & Family ministry

    Our Youth Ministry highlights faith formation for middle school through senior high. Confirmation instruction, youth events, trips, and more are offered. The senior high group (Club 3:16) meets regularly for Bible study, discussions of current events, and fun. Events include things like Ultimate Lock-in, Six Flags, Retreat weekends in Wisconsin and more. Service projects with Feed My Starving Children, Night Ministry, and our local food pantry are popular as well.
