Children are cherished and welcomed at Peace Church.
Child care is provided on Sundays from 8:15 am to 12:30 pm to allow parents to participate in worship, Fellowship, and Lively Learning.
Damaris Luna is our professional childcare manager. Damaris is a child development specialist who serves as co-director of Kids R Kids, daycare in Lakewood Ranch during the week. She has three children of her own and understands the needs of families.
Your children are safe with us. All staff and volunteers who work with children have been fingerprinted and background-checked.
Children in Worship
Children up to age 11 participate in the first part of the worship service and come forward for the children's sermon.
After the children's sermon, infants, toddlers, and preschoolers are invited to either remain with their parents in worship, or go to the Nursery and Godly Play rooms for supervised play during the sermon. When Communion begins after the sermon, children are led back to the service to rejoin their parents and take Communion.
Parents who wish to keep their infants and preschoolers in the worship service are welcome to do so. If your child becomes restless, you are welcome to use the parlor adjacent to the chapel and still participate in worship.
Children in grade school may stay in worship either with their families or go to the parlor. Coloring sheets, clipboards, and crayons are available in the narthex (lobby) as well as in the parlor.
