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. For 2016/17 we have made a few scheduling and age group changes compared to previous years, see the Education Flyer.

  • Parents are asked to fill out a student information form for children participating in Sunday School.
  • If you are interested in teaching Sunday School  or helping in other ways (volunteer form), please contact the church office.

We promise to help equip parents to teach their children.  We will offer SundaySchoolBannerdevelopmental information, ideas and resources to aid parents as they help their children grow.  Safeguarding God's Children Seminar prepares our teachers and youth leaders. Let's Journey Together!
