From Pastor Ray & Judy Waetjen:


Body of Christ at Prince of Peace,


Judy and I thank you for your love and kindness which made our farewell Sunday a very fond and uplifting memory.   We truly appreciate your generous gift and plan to use it towards our Midwest trip.


We thank and praise God for the great things He has done during our time together these past 20 months.  Using God’s Word from Philemon 4-7 (the Living Bible)…”We always thank God when we are praying for you because we keep hearing of your love and trust in the Lord Jesus and in His people.  And we pray as you share your faith with others it will grip their lives too, as they see the wealth of good things in you that come from Jesus Christ.  We have gained much joy and comfort from your love because your kindness has blessed the hearts of God’s people.”


May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit give you His blessing with peace and joy as you begin your next chapter of ministry with Pastor Zemke.


With hope and joy, 


Because of Jesus and in His love,


Pastor Ray and Judy




From Pastor Dave Zemke:

I’d like to introduce myself to the people of Prince of Peace. My name is Pastor David Zemke. I grew up in North Idaho with two brothers and two sisters. I attended Whitworth College where I earned a degree in philosophy. During the summers I worked at Camp Lutherhaven where I met my wife Stasia. 

After I graduated from seminary in 2009 I was placed at Immanuel Lutehran Church in Portland. I served there for over nine years. During that time, we grew our family to four wonderful children, Myles (9), Josie (6), Ella (5), and Henry (2).

As we engage in ministry together we will learn about each other and grow in Christ. But with that growing together comes change. Some of this change is happy change. You have a new pastor after many months without a fully time called worker. You have a new family to embrace and welcome into life here at Prince of Peace. 

Some of the changes may be more difficult. It’s hard to watch an organization that we’ve loved for so long have real changes. Inevitably, there will be disagreement about the direction we go in ministry. This is part of a healthy church.

Keeping all of this in mind, I want to ask you to renew your prayers for Prince of Peace. God has amazing ministry planned for us. God has plans to use us to work in His kingdom for the salvation of souls and the growth of His saints. Nothing can happen without God’s blessing and permission. And nothing can happen without our prayers for His guidance. Let us pray to the Lord of the Church that He would keep and guide all our paths.

On Saturday October 6th at 3PM Prince of Peace Lutheran Church 

will be joyously having the Installation Service of Pastor David Zemke as God’s called shepherd for our congregation.  Please join us in praising God for His provision and help us welcome Pastor and his family to Prince of Peace.

News from the Preschool

Off to a great start!

September has been a fun-filled month!  The children have learned new songs, heard great stories, and made fun art projects.  They have learned about letters and numbers, shapes and colors, and in Kindergarten they are working on vowels, sight words and counting! We had visits from Fire Fighters from District #3 and an awesome Walk-a-Thon!  Once again, God has sent our Preschool & Kindergarten wonderful families and awesome children!  Thank you for being a part of our Prince of Peace Preschool & Kindergarten Family!

Come One, Come All!

Our Fall Program is coming up!  It will be held on October 14, here at Prince of Peace.  The service begins at 10:15am.  Please have your child here by 10:00am.  Our program will be a part of our regular Worship Service.  It will be followed by an Open House right after the service. Come and watch your child’s program and see what he/she has been working on in class!  Bring your family and friends!

Say “Cheese”

Our Photographer, Robyn Garner, is coming in October.  She has a wonderful way of bringing out darling smiles in all of the children.  Watch for an information flyer, coming soon!  You will receive an email of your child’s proofs by the last week of October.  If you do not, please let me know!  Photo Days:

Oct. 15: MW3; Oct. 16: TTh3, Kindergarten; 

Oct. 17: MWFam/pm; Oct. 18: TTh4; 

Oct. 19: Toddler.  Photo Retake Days: 

Oct. 29 & Nov. 1.

Auto Deduction:

Are you interested in having your tuition automatically paid from your account to ours?  If so, we have a program available to you!  You may pick-up a flyer on the table outside my office or from me.


We are on Facebook, are you?  Come visit us on our Facebook page, at Prince of Peace Preschool, Battle Ground, WA.  I will be adding pictures and sharing our activities on our Facebook page.  

Can you hear me?

I will be sending out emails when I have important information for families.  Please let me know if you do NOT receive any emails from me in the next 2 weeks.   This 

may indicate that I have an 

incorrect email address for you.

Here Come the Fireman!

The Firemen from Fire District #3 were here in September!  They came to share about fire safety, “stop-drop-and roll”, and a family “Meeting Place”.     The children were each able to sit in the fire engine, (if they wanted to) and have a picture taken, as well!  

Walk the Talk:   

We held our annual Walk-a-Thon in September, here in our Preschool/Kindergarten Playground.  This is one of our two fundraisers for the school and helps to keep our tuitions low!  The children had an awesome time walking, skipping or running around the track in the playground!  29 laps around equal 1 mile and many children even surpassed that number!  Many thanks to all of the families and staff who helped at these events!  They helped make it fun and successful!  Please turn in your Pledges by October 31 to either myself or your child’s teacher.  Thank you for your support and participation in these events! 

BoxTops are here!

We will again be collecting BoxTops here at the school.  This helps to provide our classroom supplies.  Many thanks to Kelly Wessels (Finn’s Mom) for volunteering to head this opportunity!  We will be holding a special competition between the classes.  Watch for a flyer with more information.

Hup, Two, Three, Four!

To keep our staff and students prepared for a possible emergency, we have monthly drills at the Preschool/Kindergarten.  These drills include Fire Drills, Earthquake/Storm Drills, and Lock-Down Drills.  We plan to hold six drills during the year.  In September, we held our first Fire Drills and we will be holding a Storm Drill in October.

Fall Harvest Parties are coming!

Our Fall Harvest Parties are coming fast!  These fun events are held during regular class time.  Your child’s teacher will be letting you know what things are needed for these events.  The children can dress-up for their party, but please nothing scary!  These parties are fun for the whole family, so come and enjoy the fun!

Going Once, Going Twice, Sold!

It’s time again to begin planning for our annual Preschool/Kindergarten Auction!  It seems like we were just having a wonderful time at our “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” Auction and here it is again!  We will hold the Auction on March 9.  This is a large event that requires lots of parent help!  Our first planning meeting is on 

Oct. 17 at 2:45 – 3:45pm.  Please come and share your ideas and talents for this fun event!

Policy Reminder:

Each month I will restate a policy or policies from our Parent Handbook, as needed.  These are issues that either have come up during the previous month or have importance for this particular month.


If your child is showing any of the following symptoms of cold, flu, or any other communicable disease, please keep him/her home and inform the school:

1) Fever over 99.5*F
