“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
|Bibles are given to children when they turn 3 years old and when they enter 3rd grade.
For ages 3 years – 4th grade
|Most Sundays during the program year children are invited to leave during the 10:45am worship service before the sermon for a time of songs and stories in the Narthex. Children and leaders will be back in the sanctuary in time for communion. All are welcome—including caregivers if that helps a child settle in.
|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.
|Family Fun Nights
|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!
|Congregational Wide Events
|These events are open to the whole congregation and include service projects, fellowship events & Sunday morning opportunities.
|We present a Christmas Program annually during a Sunday morning service.
|Vacation Bible School
|Join children from Prince of Peace and the community for a fun-filled week during the summer learning about how much God loves you.
|Camp Wapo offers day, weekend, and weeklong summer camp opportunities.
