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 (scheduled for June 9-11, 2020). 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.

It takes an army of volunteers to ensure that our worship services, fellowship events, and all our ministries run smoothly. We are always happy to welcome people who would like to help out. Contact Alyson or ask at the Welcome Center about how you can get involved.
