Educational Support Ministry

The purpose of the Educational Support Ministry at Shalom Church (City of Peace) is to prepare, support, and encourage our youth in areas such as character development, college preparation, and experiential learning experiences. Through  these avenues we hope to partner with parents in their efforts to develop our next generation of young Christian leaders. Click here for more information.

Fine Motor Skill Development

Age Group: 2 - 5

Text: Proverbs 22:6

The development of fine motor skills is essential to a child’s ability to carry out functions like zipping, buttoning, coloring and writing. Research suggests that lack of appropriate activities and/or the forming of bad habits can greatly hinder fine motor skill development. Class participants will be exposed to a series of Bible-based art & craft activities that develop fine motor skills. 

Christian Character Education
Age group: 6 – 12

Bible Foundation: I Corinthians 13:4 – 8 & v. 13; Luke 6:43-45; Galatians 5:22-23 

Violence in school, academic dishonesty, disrespect for authority – all these can be traced back to a lack of Christian character traits among today’s youth. Christian character can be defined, quite simply as the character of Christ. Using Bible stories that reveal Christ’s character, students will be exposed to a foundational understanding of Christ’s character and the ways they can practice His character. 

Confirmation Class (Ages 13 - 14)

PURPOSE: This class is designed to teach the fundamentals of the Christian faith so that youth will have an adequate understanding of the church and ministry.

Confirmation Class consists of 5 lessons and an oral examination that is held every Sunday during our 10am worship service in classroom 107. Participants can begin at any point in the 5 lesson cycle.
