Prince of Peace has dedicated one day each year in the life of your child to celebrate baptism. Keeping the Promise [KTP] family experiences are designed to equip families to live out the important promises made during baptism. In response to the promise to bring children to worship to encounter God’s Word and to be strengthened with communion, this KTP will give families the opportunity to learn about and experience Communion. During station rotations, fourth graders* and their families will learn about the history and significance of Communion, learn logistics around Communion at Prince of Peace, and decorate stoles to wear when they receive their First Communion. After attending the KTP, families are invited to attend the Saturday 5:30 pm or Sunday 11:00 am worship service for their child to receive their First Communion.
