Children and Young Family Ministry is where families and staff come together to raise faith‐filled children by bringing Bible stories to life through music, activities, and time in small groups.

Theme: Initiative| Don’t wait for someone else to do what needs to be done.
What keeps you from doing what needs to be done? Sometimes we are unaware a need exists. Other times we actually see the need, but for whatever reason, never get to it. This week we want families to think about the things that get in the way of taking initiative and figure out a plan for how we can get the job done.

September through April | Wednesdays unless otherwise noted
Children K – 5th Grade are invited to join Praise Choir in the Chapel.
Freestyle is available for all children pre-K to Grade 5 and meets in the Media Room of the Christian Life Center. There are snacks, games, and spaces for students to connect. This is also a great volunteer opportunity for parents.
Families are invited to join us for fun music and an all-age worship service led by the Family Ministry team in the Family Room of the Christian Life Center.
Small group content includes age- appropriate lessons and fun activities. Handouts for parents are included each week.
This year’s theme is “A People Called Parent.” Parents will explore the different ways children call us into being a parent. A variety of people will cover a range of challenges and issues that parents face.
Parenting Tools meets in Room 200.
A fun-filled all-age worship service led by the Family Ministry team in the Family Room of the Christian Life Center.
The first couple weeks can feel a little bit discombobulated as kids and families get used to the routine. These first few weeks can be all about getting to know each other. Absolutely don’t stress about getting through the whole curriculum packet. There is way more there than you will ever use! Pick and choose the activities that will work best for your group. Oh, and make sure to review the Small Group Covenant with your group and have everyone sign it. Keep it in your small bin to pull out as needed.
As always, if you have questions, concerns or need help in any way, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me!

In Baptism God grabs hold of us and promises to never let go. Baptism is also a time for friends, family and the Prince of Peace community to promise to help those who are getting baptized to grow in their love for God, each other and the world.
Prince of Peace has dedicated one day each year in the life of your child to celebrate baptism. Keeping the Promise Family Experiences (KTP) are designed to remind us of the important promises you made during your child’s baptism.

The Child Development and Learning Center (CDLC) offers a safe, loving Christian environment with respect and support for all children and families. We provide opportunities for each child to define self, understand who they are and discover their role within the community.
CDLC of Prince of Peace, founded in 1971, is a Christian preschool for children ages 3 to 5. It began with 30 students and currently serves over 150 children each week. We welcome children of any cultural background or religious affiliation.
At CDLC we strive to provide and develop strong self-esteem in our children allowing them to grow spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively. The curriculum is carefully designed to provide hands-on activities for children in the areas of large motor, cooking, music, creative arts, science, story and Spanish.
