“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.
