  • POP Child Care (6 weeks – grade 5) will be available Sundays from 8:30 am – noon and Wednesdays from 5:00 – 7:30 pm. Children can transition from Child Care to POP Pre-K at any time during the year following a discussion with Child Care Director, Jeanne Kalsow, regarding that request.
  • POP Pre-K (3-5 years) and POP Kids (Grade K-5) have three identical options: Sundays 9:00 – 10:00 am, Sundays 10:30 – 11:30 am and Wednesdays 6:00 – 7:00 pm. POP Pre-K will meet in the Child Care area. POP Kids will have worship/large group in the Chapel, and break into small groups for age-appropriate games/activities. Small group assignments will be communicated to families the week of September 5.

  • POP Child Care: POP Child Care offers care for children ages 6 weeks to grade 5 to support the many ministries at Prince of Peace. Our caring and dedicated staff is trained in CPR and First Aid. Every adult who interacts with children is required to have a background check. We have dedicated space for children filled with age-appropriate toys, equipment, and activities. Detailed plans and policies are in place to ensure everyone’s safety.
  • POP Pre-K: POP Pre-K (ages 3-5) explores key Bible stories in an engaging and age-appropriate atmosphere. Every lesson is designed to gather preschoolers together into a welcoming environment, dig into a foundational Bible story, and help kids see themselves in the story in a way that builds faith. Lessons are reinforced, and community encouraged, through activities, games, music, and art.
  • POP Kids: POP Kids (grade K-5) seeks to help young disciples trust God’s character and experience Christian community. Our weekly worship experience and small group time is designed to focus on these three basic truths: I can trust God no matter what; I need to make the wise choice; I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
  • POP Praise Choir: POP Praise Choir (grade K-5) meets weekly to learn fun, high-energy music while building lasting friendships. We share the music we have learned in Sunday morning worship once per month and through two large-scale productions: a special Advent worship service featuring music/drama led by kids and a fully-staged Spring Musical.
  • StuMin: StuMin is a weekly worship/small group experience for students in grades 6-12. StuMin explores the three relationships mentioned in the greatest commandment: God, self, and others. We want students to experience a love for God that inspires personal faith, a love for themselves rooted in their identity as beloved children of God, and a love for others that develops strong interpersonal connections and motivates a desire to serve.
  • Confirmation: At Prince of Peace we expand on the tradition of Confirmation as a way of passing on our particular Lutheran faith tradition to include pathways for life-long spiritual formation. Students will engage with the Enneagram spiritual formation inventory. We will also walk through the Gospel of John to see what a life of discipleship looks like for the purpose of following Jesus in our own lives. Finally, we will explore the ways our Lutheran tradition helps to amplify our development as disciples.

Fall 2021 will bring additional opportunities for parents to engage in our faith community, especially on Wednesday nights. Watch for upcoming information about Moms Next, Men’s Ministry, serving in Mission Outpost, and other ways to deepen your connection with God alongside other adults.
