Childcare at ELPC

Childcare is available for many of our church services and activities. We have a great space for young children with lots of toys and books, and plenty of room to run around! If you have any questions as to whether childcare will be offered for an ELPC meeting or function, please call Gloria Knopp at 412.441.3800 x122.


Sundays, infants to age 3

Childcare is available for infants through age 3 in the nursery, from 8:30 am–12:15 pm, allowing parents and siblings to attend the Journey service, Sunday school classes, and the 11 am Sanctuary service (or the 10 am worship service during the summer). A snack is usually offered to children sometime between 11:15 am and 12 pm.

Sundays, children over 3

Children over age 3 are encouraged to attend their own Sunday school classes and extended session classes; view the Children’s Ministry and Sunday Morning Church School pages for additional information. Note that this program requires a Enrollment Form 2017–2018. Please click to download the PDF; fill it in and return, or you can fill it out when you come in.

Childcare may be available by request for other special church events during the year. If you would like to attend one of our special events and you’re not sure whether childcare will be offered, please call Gloria Knopp at 412.441.3800 x122.

All childcare providers have passed background checks, including criminal and child abuse checks and be trained in ELPC’s Child Safety Policies. If you have any questions regarding ELPC’s policies contact the Rev. Heather Schoenewolf, 412.441.3800 x121

ELPC does not offer a full-time childcare or daycare program.
