Middle School is hard. We are here to help.

No matter who you are, find a place where you can have fun, make friends, and learn about Jesus.

Middle school is hard. Come find a group of people willing to walk with you through the challenges and changes of life and have fun doing it! Our community is designed to support and encourage you in middle school and beyond. Join us on a Sunday morning or come visit a Reality Check, our monthly large group gathering.

What You'll Find

A Place for Everyone

Middle school can be about how your different from everyone else. We get it. Here’s a place where we share a common purpose.

Leaders who Care

You’ll be loved, supported, and encouraged by genuinely excellent leaders who are there for you, no matter what life brings you.

Meet You, Right Where You Are

We speak to kids where they are—the language of fun and games, being yourself, and celebrating who our kids are. They’re worth it and more!

Fall Camp: Crazy in the Country

November 15-17 at Sandy Hill Camp and Retreat Center, North East, MD

Middle schoolers, we’re going to fall camp. This weekend will be a great opportunity for kids to connect with leaders as they get closer to God. All kids are invited so please invite your friends! The cost for camp is $150, this covers all meals (except for lunch on the way home), lodging, transportation, and your t-shirt.

Upcoming Middle School Events

My parents always told me how much God cares, but it wasn’t until I got involved in the Middle School ministry at EP that I truly began to understand and believe that for myself.

Being a leader and volunteering in the youth ministry is a true joy! It is a privilege to come along side the middle schoolers and other leaders as we wrestle through the promises of scripture together. God has been very gracious in providing encouragement and friendships as we all grow in our love and understanding of who Jesus is.

I am so thankful for EP's Middle School Ministry: great teaching, fun events, awesome outreach and incredible fellowship. What a blessing to have a place where kids in this season of life can come and be loved, challenged, and encouraged!
