Youth Ministries

Youth Ministry at Prince of Peace strives to create an atmosphere of discovery around faith, relationships, and community.

  • Together we strive to stimulate personal spiritual growth.
  • Together we serve one another and others locally and globally, empowering and transforming lives and communities through our joint service.
  • Together we build relationships with each other and strengthen the community of Christ.

Youth Ministries are designed to instill a sense of self-worth and improved self-image in youth and families. We offer this specialized ministry with the intent of developing and building assets in youth. We provide a safe environment where healthy relationships develop and grow, while inter-relating their lives with the God story.

Any youth, parents, or adults interested in assisting with youth events, please contact Julene Hawkins

As many have you may have heard, the National ELCA Youth Gathering has been cancelled this summer. We are all bummed by the lost opportunity to experience the magnitude of having thousands of high school youth together for a week of faith formation, learning, and fun. However, we support the difficult decision to keep teens, leaders, organizers, and the community safe during the ongoing challenges of the pandemic. After taking a few days to process the cancellation, we began pivoting to plan B. After a group vote, we will be moving forward with a service learning trip to Chicago during the originally planned dates of the youth gathering, July 24th-29th, 2022.
