Many EPLC ministry events have been cancelled or are now virtual. Please contact the relevant director with any questions about a particular program.
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!
Jennifer Williams, Children's Ministry Director
Our Youth Ministry highlights faith formation for middle school through senior high. Confirmation instruction, youth events, trips, and more are offered. Confirmation (7th and 8th grades) classes are Wednesdays at 6:00 pm. The senior high group (Club 3:16) meets every other Wednesday at 7:00 pm for Bible study, discussions of current events, and fun. Events include 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.
