 Children, Youth & Family Programs . . . spiritual & relational development for young people & their families          


At the center of Prince of Peace’s Growth Ministries program is the understanding that the family is the heart of faith development. Therefore, the faith formation events offered here nurture spiritual and relational development for the whole family.

    First Sundays (October - May)
    Intergenerational Faith Education for All Generations

    “Parents have been, are and always will be the most important faith guides, mentors and teachers a kid will ever have.”  Rich Melheim

    Wow . . . what a powerful statement.  So it got us thinking:  Why do we separate our families on Sunday mornings for faith education???

    What we are doing about it:  FIRST THINGS! 

    The FIRST Sunday of each month parents and children will gather together in the Fellowship Hall for laughter and fun and food and faith. 

    Shhh . . . don’t tell the kids that they will be learning strategies to ensure that they will always talk to their parents, even when they become teenagers!  The kids will think we’re all just having fun!


    HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS:  Starting to feel the crunch? . . . college visits, college applications, scholarship applications.  Come in for a 45 minute consultation with Cathy to get organized and get on the right track.  Call Cathy at 895-4440, or e-mail at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it .  (Hey Juniors . . . it’s never too early to start!)


   -- Discover a group of colleges that have faith in your future 



    Do you know of someone who is marking a milestone in their life?  Please let us know so we can celebrate with them through prayer!
