Children

At Peace, we desire that children participating in our ministries will:

Know God created them, loves them and is always with them. (Proclaim the Gospel)
Love & Trust Jesus and His Word. (Make Disciples)
Love others as God loves us. (Move the mission forward)

Nursery: Infant - 3 years

Peace’s nursery is staffed on Sunday mornings from 8:15a - 12:00p. Our staff and volunteers are background checked, and attend training to keep your children safe!  We strive to provide a warm, attentive environment for your little ones.

Early Childhood:
3 years - Kindergarten

Our early childhood Bible study teachers and helpers provide a consistent, nurturing environment to help children build a foundation of faith in Jesus!
Through worship, interactive Bible stories and age appropriate activities children are taught foundational stories from the Bible that will help them learn that God made them, God loves them and Jesus is their forever friend. 

Elementary: 1st - 5th grade

Our elementary Bible study teachers and helpers provide an engaging, relational environment to help children learn they can trust God and God’s Word.  Through worship, storytelling, and age appropriate activities children will build friendships, practice faith skills such as prayer, and reading God’s Word, and continue to learn foundational Bible stories.

About Parent Cue

You are a better parent than you might realize. At least we think so. Parents, grandparents, and guardians often don’t give themselves enough credit for the remarkable job they are doing in raising kids to become good humans. Your parenting style might not be for everyone, and that’s okay. At Parent Cue, our goal is simply to cue you with what you need when you need it, so you can be the parent you want to be.

As Christians, we are united by our common belief in the Creator of the cosmos, the image of God in all people, and our faith in Jesus Christ. The Bible is the authoritative source for understanding the person of Jesus, and is instructive for the life and ministry of those who follow Him. We celebrate the family in all of its many forms, and support every caregiver’s role in raising humans to fully embrace the fullness of life they were created and redeemed to experience.

Mental Health 

The more we learn about mental health, the more we realize how necessary it is to educate ourselves about it. We’ve collected as many resources as we could for leaders, parents, youth pastors, children’s ministers, kids, and teenagers and compiled it all in one place. We hope these resources can help us better understand WHAT mental health is and WHY it’s so important for us to safeguard our health as well as the health of others. Whether you’re a book reader, a podcast listener, or a video watcher, there’s something here for you!

Children Ministry FAQs

Where is Children's Bible Study?

Children's Bible Study happens upstairs in our Children's Ministry space. Our upstairs is located on the Northeast end of our campus. 

Children's Bible Study meets each Sunday, 9:45a - 10:45a. 

Does Peace offer Nursery Care?

Yes! Our Nursery is staffed and available for children infant - 3 years each Sunday, 8a -12:15p.

Our Nursery is located on the Southside of our campus, facing the playground out back. 

Do children attend worship?

We encourage parents, children and families to worship together. We have a special time in each worship service for children. We call this our "Children's Message." During the "Children's Message," we invite children forward to the front of the Sanctuary for a message that was prepared to help them understand the main point of the sermon and Scripture reading for the day. 

As you enter our Sanctuary, make sure you grab a Kids' Worship Bag. Our Worship Bags are filled with activities, coloring pages, and a book to help children focus on the topic of the weekend and to learn more about Jesus and His love for them.

Will my children be safe?

Your child's safety is important to us, and we take it seriously. At Peace Lutheran Church, all volunteers within Children's & Student Ministries are required to submit and pass a background check, and go through Child Safety Training. Volunteers are also given ministry specific training to serving in Children's Ministry throughout the year.
