At Peace Lutheran Church our Children's Ministries welcome you and your family with open arms!
We offer a number of programs, events and children ministry opportunities for our families here at Peace.
The Peace Lutheran Church KidsMin Mission Statement - To encourage children to know and trust Jesus Christ as their Savior and in partnership with their parents, equip them to lead a Christ-centered life.
Our Motto - Bring Jesus to children and children to Jesus
Where every child finds a place to fit in...
Lightning Bugs Children's Ministry - Kids in K-5th grade come together on Wednesday evening from 6-7:20 p.m. to praise, worship and learn all about Jesus Christ and God's word! This high-energy extension of Sunday school is an awesome opportunity for children to recieve additional Christian education throughout the week. Lessons are fun and interactive and the curriculum is all age-based to give each child a chance to learn at their own level.
Nursery - The Peace nursery is open on Sunday during the 1st and 2nd Services, as well as during Sunday school (per volunteer availability). Congregational volunteers staff the nursery two at a time, often with youth helpers. All children are encouraged to worship with their parents in the main sanctuary, but the nursery is there for our guests and visitors any time you need it. Faith Activity bags can be picked up for younger children in the Narthex by the nursery door and returned after service. Please contact Nursery Coordinator Kelsi Roberts if you are interested in serving in the nursery ministry or have any questions about the nursery.

Cradle Roll - Also known as Nursery Roll, is a way in which Peace Lutheran church connects with new parents and offers helpful materials as they share Jesus with their children. Each Nursery Roll packet is full of materials—designed specifically for children under three and their parents—that nurture the spiritual, emotional, and physical development of a child. Mrs. Nancy Eldridge supplies these packets to parents upon the birth of their child.
Growing in Christ Sunday school - Children from Pre-K through High School are able to attend Sunday school classes at 9:45 a.m. every Sunday morning. Growing in Christ follows a same-age classroom model so students learn and grow in faith alongside their peers. Together, they explore the Bible, draw connections to the Small Catechism, and learn the traditions of the Lutheran Church. Guests are always welcome and encouraged to attend!
Peace Lutheran Youth Fellowship - Our youth ministry is a safe and embracing environment for students in Grades 9-12 to come and hang out with other Christian teens. We regularly study God's word and serve in our community. Youth Group meets every Sunday at 9:45 a.m. in the Youth Room in the Youth Activities Center.
The Lighthouse (Wednesday Night Devos) also meets Wednesday nights from 6:00 p.m. - 7:20 p.m. for devotionals and fellowship in the Youth Room in the Youth Activities Center.

Peace Lutheran Jr. Youth (Matchbox Youth) - Our Jr. Youth is an awesome new opportunity for students in Grades 6-8 to come and hang out with other Christian teens. We regularly study God's word and serve in our community, play Gaga ball and do Bible Study. Jr. Youth Group (Matchbox Youth) meets every Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. outside of the Youth Activities Center in the Gaga Ball pit.

Middle School Confirmation - 6th, 7th and 8th graders are invited to join us in our Youth Activities Center every Wednesday evening at 6:30 p.m. for our exciting and challenging Confirmation program. Each year students learn more about their growing faith from adult mentors and also go on a weekend long retreat to Camp Lone Star.
