Faith is more than knowledge about God. Instead, it's about growing in the experience of God throughout our lives by continually learning, asking questions and being formed in faith by what God is saying to us.
Faith formation at Prince of Peace happens at many times and in many ways.
Sunday School for Children (9:45-10:45 am) employs the Spark Rotation Sunday School curriculum for our preschool through elementary age classes. In workshops such as drama, cooking, and science, we’ll explore each Bible story from multiple perspectives and in greater depth with an experiential approach similar to VBS. The Sunday School curriculum for middle school students is based in exploration. Hilarious short films will be the starting point for discussing theological questions that youth really ask.
