REsources to Help for COVID-19

Below are practical tools that can help you and your family cope with issues brought-on by the challenges of facing the COVID-19 quarantine. 
Mental Health Tips for Self-Quarantine
Education Resources for Families  

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, rites and rituals, in a natural “as you go” manner. 

Vacation Bible School

Virtual Bible School was held online, September 3-5, 2020, via our website. If you missed it, you can still use the videos on your own, with your kids.

Sunday School

Children's Sunday School classes are typically held from 9:45 to 10:45am on Sunday mornings. Age 3 - grade 6 meet in the Sanctuary for opening and will conclude their time in their specified classrooms. 


Two different choirs are available for elementary age children.   Click the links to find out what online options are available: Primary Choir for 1st and 2nd graders and Junior Choir is offered for 3rd through 6th graders.

First Communion 

It has been a long-standing tradition at Prince of Peace to offer opportunities for children, 3rd grade and older, to take classes to prepare them for First Communion. This free three-week course is designed for 3rd – 6th grade students and a parent to attend together.  It's fun, informative, and interactive and it's led by our Pastors and staff.  This course is best in person,  check back with us when the building is fully open, or contact John to put your name on the list.  

Email John Durkin, DCE to sign up.
