Families & Children

The Prince of Peace Families & Children Ministry exists to provide families with a Christ-centered place to receive resources, encouragement, and training to make disciples in their homes.

Our vision is for parents to be instructed, trained, encouraged, and coached to pass the Christian faith on to their children through spiritual conversations, family devotions, life connections, rite, and rituals, in a natural “as you go” manner. 

First Friday - Parent's Night Out

The First Friday of the month will be Parent’s Night Out available from 6-10pm in the Youth Room.  Cost of care is $15/child and a maximum of $30 per family and includes: dinner, activities, quiet time, adult/teen supervision. Please register by 12pm (noon) the Thursday prior to the First Friday. Walk-ins will be welcomed on a first-come- first-served basis as space is available.
