Grade 6-12

Student Ministry is where youth in grades 6-12 worship God, form lasting relationships, and serve in the world. There is a lot to Student Ministry at Prince of Peace!

Summer Registrations are Open

Registration is now open for Summer 2018 camps, Vacation Bible School and Family Recharge.

This Week at a Glance

Theme: Captives
This week we continue our Captives series. This week we will hear a presentation defining youth sexual exploitation from sexting to trafficking, the red flags of predator tactics, healthy vs. abusive relationships, internet safety, and when and how to get help if you, or someone you know needs help. Parents are invited to Parenting Tools in the Chapel from 7:15-8:00 where there will be a speaker for parents.

StuMin will follow the regular schedule this week. You can find the schedule on our main Family Ministry page.

Affirmation of Baptism (Confirmation)

In Affirmation of Baptism (offered in the fall and spring), students commit to taking the lead in their own life of discipleship. We approach each of the participants as if they are characters in a subplot of God’s great story.

Then, applying the principles of what makes a truly great story, help them clarify and bring meaning to the life they commit to during Affirmation of Baptism. Along the way we’ll learn about who God is, who we are, the story we’re a part of, and the life we’ve been called to.

Two sessions are offered, one in the spring and one in the fall. Each session consists of 10 classes on Sunday mornings. Each session culminates in a celebration with the entire Prince of Peace community during weekend worship.

Trips, Camps, and Events
