We help your kids experience a God who loves them

Our Children’s Ministry provides a safe, nurturing environment where kids can explore who Jesus is and what he’s done for them.

We know that Jesus loved children. He said, “Let the children come to me” because he was passionate that they experience the love of their heavenly Father. And just as Jesus welcomed children to come to him, we welcome all of our children to a safe, nurturing place where they can have fun, be themselves, and learn about God.

What You Can Expect

A Safe Environment

We have a trained team of teachers and helpers who create a safe, nurturing environment for your kids.

Gospel-Centered Teaching

Jesus loved children, and Jesus is the center of our teaching. We want kids to experience his love in a way that makes sense to them.

Learn to Love Others

We are a multi-generational church, so your kids will learn to care for and love others in a community that cares for and loves them.

Our Sunday Classes

Little Lamb Nurseries (3 months to 2 years)

Noah’s Ark Preschool (ages 2-5)

These programs meet at both the 9:15 and 11 service times. We have a wonderful team of loving caregivers and teachers ready to receive your little ones each Sunday!

EP Kids (grades K-5)

Children meet at the Chapel at 10:55 for large group worship time before heading to class with their teacher.

My husband and I were impressed with the children's ministry at EP right away! The Sunday School teachers and nursery workers are so welcoming and really engage with our little ones. The lessons are always Scripture-focused and age-appropriate, and the whole experience is always a lot of fun for the kids.

Linda Cate

Director of Children's Ministry

As a parent myself, I know how important it is that church is a place where my kids feel welcomed and cared for. Having served in Children’s Ministry for many years, I can testify to what a difference a fun, safe environment to learn about God can make in a child’s life. We serve a God who loves children and promises to guide them as they mature in their faith. It is my team’s honor to teach kids each week and to offer support and encouragement to their parents as they raise their children.
