 Children in Church
Peace Lutheran Church loves children! Pastor Megan does her best to include kids in worship by asking them to help with simple tasks like carrying the offering plate or helping with a children’s service. Our members are delighted to play peek-a-boo over the pew with your little ones, and we provide a quiet room attached to the sanctuary for kids who need to wiggle and giggle during the service. – Please see our Nursery page for more info
Middle School and High Youth are also welcome and encouraged to participate in worship by being an acolyte, helping usher, and serving as readers. Please see our Youth Ministry Page for more information
