CHILDREN’S MINISTRIES


Following Jesus’ example, the Children’s Ministry programs at Prince of Peace are committed to providing a safe, nurturing, and loving environment for all to grow in the love and grace of God. We welcome and encourage all children to join us in worship, fellowship, education, and service.

  • Parents are asked to fill out a student information form for children participating in Sunday School. Link to Sunday School Registration Form.
  • If you are interested in teaching Sunday School or helping in other ways, please contact the church office at 651-484-4144 or email [email protected].

We promise to help equip parents to teach their children. We will offer developmental information, ideas and resources to aid parents as they help their children grow.
