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!
