Children’s Ministries

“Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them.”   — Jesus


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.

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.

Children’s Ministry Programs

Bible Presentation Bibles are delivered to children when they turn 3 years old and when they enter 3rd grade.
Faith Formation Growing in faith is not based on age – it is something that we do throughout life. Beginning at 3 years through adulthood, Christian education takes place from September through May.
First Communion A class is held during Lent and one-on-one instruction may be requested of either Pastor at anytime. Children and their parents are invited to learn about communion and its meaning so that they may partake in the Lord’s Supper beginning with Holy Week services.

Children’s Music and Worship

Children’s Sermons At each service, children are invited to come forward for sermons that speak directly to them.
Sunday School Choir  This Choir, led by Melissa Burke, shares songs they have learned in worship.
Christmas Program We present a Christmas Program annually during a Sunday morning service.

Other Ways the Children’s Ministry Supports Families

  • Celebrating children’s accomplishments
  • Providing hospital visits
  • Parenting concerns and support
  • Assisting children in grief situations
  • Assisting children in transition
  • Child care resource for church events
