Here at Prince of Peace, we want to provide families with a Christ-centered place to receive resources, encouragement, and training to make disciples in their homes.
OUR VISION FOR MINISTERING TO FAMILIES
Parents are instructed, trained, encouraged, and coached to pass the Christian faith on to their children through spiritual conversations, family devotions, life connections, rites and rituals, in a natural “as you go” manner. Age-specific ministry opportunities (Student Ministry 4th-12th grades) are designed to affirm the faith, encourage relationships, serve the community, and contribute to the congregation.
Prince of Peace has a subscription for all members to rightnow MEDIA, a website that houses 10,000+ video resources for kids, youth and adults. If you are interested in learning more or to be added to the subscription, please email John Durkin, DCE or call the Church Office at (703)451-5855.
CHILDREN'S MINISTRY OPPORTUNITIES
The Children's Ministry opportunities are summarized below.
Prince of Peace has a Nursery on premises that offers childcare for Infants to age 4, during Worship services, Sunday School and other special events. Paid child-care providers staff the Nursery, which is located in Room 22.

Visual Faith & Bible Journaling
Bible Journaling is a huge movement where many people are connecting to the Bible like never before. All you need is a desire to create and spend time with God. Look for special opportunities as they are posted throughout the calendar year.
Vacation Bible School
A one week, half-day (morning) Vacation Bible School is held during the summer, for five year-olds through rising 5th graders. There are many volunteer opportunities that might appeal to you or your children 6th grade and up. Join us in bringing the gospel message to children next summer.
