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!

This Week at a Glance

Theme: Fall Registration

StuMin will be the Christian Life Center Family Room this fall. See the full schedule and room assignments here. It will be a tight fit, but it will help us to prepare for being under one roof and it will keep kids and volunteers safer in the colder months.


MEA Getaway
October 18-21
Pelican Lake, MN

The high school students of StuMin will head to Camp Castaway along with 20 other churches for our annual fall retreat, MEA Getaway. This retreat features great speakers, worship, and opportunities to connect more deeply with other students from StuMin. Cost is $250 which includes coach bus, food, and lodging. Register today.

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

Throughout the year we host opportunities for students in every grade. Below you will find an activity calendar with our upcoming events where you can find more information and register to participate.
