Many EPLC ministry events have been cancelled or are now virtual. Please contact the relevant director with any questions about a particular program. 

  • 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. 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 "Mission of Faith." Come and enjoy! Grow in faith!
