StuMin Weekly Schedule

September through April | Wednesdays unless otherwise noted

StuMin Praise Band | 5:30 - 6:15 pm

Students in grades 6-12 are welcome to find a place in our StuMin Band. Rehearsal will take place in the Sanctuary in the Worship Center. Due to a high number of students, we use a rotation system to ensure that all students can contribute.

Small Groups | 6:15 - 7:00 pm (early) or 8:00 - 8:45 pm (late)

All students are encouraged to participate in age-level small groups. There are two sessions, “early” and “late,” meeting in various spaces in the Christian Life Center. Small group content is written differently for high school and middle school groups.

Freestyle | 6:15 - 7:15 pm

Freestyle is available for all students 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.

StuMin Worship | 7:15 - 8:00 pm

Students are invited to join us for amazing music, large group games, sacraments, and a relevant message in the Family Room of the Christian Life Center. This is not a passive experience! There are many ways to be involved as ushers, greeters, communion servers, game and announcement hosts, guest speakers, singers, dancers, and much more.

Parenting Tools | 7:15 - 8:00 pm

StuMin Parenting Tools
Wednesdays | 7:15-8:00
For the last two weeks of February, we will return to facilitated small group discussion around popular topics affecting families today. These sessions will be led by Amee, Christensen, Ronda Soukup, and Julie Kramme. Be sure to invite other parents who you feel would benefit from a supportive community of people living out their calling as parents of adolescents! Contact Jason Kamme for more information.

Affirmation of Baptism | Sundays 9:45 am

In Affirmation of Baptism 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 10-week sessions are offered on Sunday mornings each year (one in the fall and one in the spring). Each session culminates in a celebration with the entire Prince of Peace community during weekend worship.

This Week's Note From StuMin Staff

Ash Wednesday

Serve night is April 24th! Leaders should work to find a service opportunity for their small group and connect with Dawn once they’ve found an opportunity.



Grade level Mixers: Next group is Grade 7  on April 3.

Grade Level Mixer Schedule (.pdf)

  • What: These are 45 minute leader-led mixers for students in a particular grade replacing large group time.
  • When: Each grade will have two of these events a year.
  • Where: These will take place at Prince of Peace unless other arrangements are made by leaders.
  • How it Works: Connect with the leaders from your grade-level to plan an event for the number of students in your grade.
  • Goal: We want kids to know other kids in their grade better and to establish a group identity

All materials can be purchased by staff. Simply provide staff with a list with enough time before the event to purchase. We would like these events to cost $50 or less.

Volunteer Opportunities

  • StuMin Planning: Students and adults leaders are invited to gather every Tuesday from 3:00-4:00 pm in Jason’s office to plan weekly ministry, trips, and events. This is a great way to get volunteer hours! If you are interested, email Jason.

If so, you are invited to join the StuMin Band and Production Team. Please email Russ Parrish with your name, email, availability, and areas of interest.
