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 given to children when they turn 3 years old and when they enter 3rd grade.
Faith Rocks!
For Ages
0 – 4th Grade
Every Sunday children are invited to leave worship during the sermon and have a time of songs and stories in the Narthex. Each week they will receive a “faith rock” with an image from the story of the week to help them remember (and tell you!) the story. Everyone will be back in the sanctuary in time for communion. All are welcome—including caregivers if that helps a child settle in. 
First Communion A class is held during Lent and one-on-one instruction may be requested 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.

Once a month Family Fun Nights will be held at Prince of Peace! Activities might include Boardgames, Minute-to-Win-it games, Bingo, Movie night, and more!
