Director’s Note:

We have had an interesting summer, here at Prince of Peace! The June Summer Camp was cancelled due to the Washington State COVID19 restrictions. Our July Summer Camp was a big hit! We learned about the Oceans and all that are within them. We will learn about Dinosaurs at our August Summer Camp! We combine learning with extra fun activities each week! Come and join the fun in August! We are following the Washington State Health Department recommendations for COVID19 health and safety for both the summer camps and the upcoming school year.


Summer Camps!!!

Come join the fun and learning at Prince of Peace Preschool & Kindergarten! We will have art, recreation, reading, math, writing, dramatic play, games, music, Bible and theme-based science or social studies, all age-appropriate. Have fun with new and old friends, keep up your “school skills” and prepare for fall classes.

A couple weeks ago at the Prince of Peace work party, time was

taken to write notes of encouragement to our Battle Ground Police Department!
Pastor and Lisa delivered these notes (on blue paper, cut into heart shapes) and gave the BGPD a “heart attack” - doughnuts and all!

We had enough hearts to go in the squad room, the inside lobby,

and outside! Thanks to all who partnered with us on this project!




We wished the Larson family farewell and Godspeed Sunday, July 26th in worship (concluded with a car horn salute!). We have been blessed by their faithful service           in so many parts of our church. They’ve given their hearts  in Praise Team, choir, bells, Bible teaching, Lay Ministry, photo directory, serving communion, work days, sound board, etc etc... what a beautiful legacy they’ve left at POP!

Thank you Larsons, for your example of Christ’s love to His church body!

We wish them God’s peace, blessings and traveling mercies as they relocate to Nevada! Join us in praying for them as they close this chapter in Washington and follow God’s leading to their next adventure!


Online VBS 2020!

Ahoy Mates! Our last day on Mystery Island was a success! We tracked down the one, true God and learned that he is GREAT, ALMIGHTY, RULER, IMMANUEL, and TRUSTWORTHY! What a great week! What an unprecedented way to have VBS! Some families participated while on vacation, some invited a friend over, some while on the road - wherever they were, they were learning about God! We sang, danced, crafted, ate, and played through a great week! Glory and praise to God for the opportunity!

Thanks to each of you who prayed over our VBS!


News From: 

Lisa Ballard, Youth and Family, 2020!


Empty Nester Group -

The Board of Education would like to offer a small group Book Study in the fall 

of 2020 for empty nesters. The group would meet 4-6 times, once per week, likely in the evening. Please email or contact Lisa Ballard if this is something you're interested in so we can best plan. Thank you!">



College and Career Group - The Board of Education is seeking to get the gang back together! If you are in your 20s and 30s and would like to grow in your faith and fellowship, pencil a spot in your calendar for Thursday nights starting Fall 2020!   Let Lisa Ballard know if you're interested so you can get on the email 

with information!

Just One Thing

What is that blue donation box in the social hall?  What is Just One Thing?  What is a Hope Bag?

Just One Thing is a program to end homelessness in Battle Ground.  How do we do that?

We at Prince of Peace are collecting bottles of water (8 or 12 oz) and individual snack items.  These items are put into Hope Bags along with other items and a card with information where someone can go get the help they need.

On this sides of our Just One Thing donation box are blue bags that contain Hope Bags.  Take a bag or two and keep them in your car.  When you see someone standing on the street with a sign asking for help, give them a Hope Bag.  It won’t solve their problems. It will give them a drink of water and a quick snack and information on where to go to get help.  If these are people from out of the area hoping to take advantage of the kindness of the citizens of Battle Ground it is hopeful that they will leave if all they get is a snack and water.  Please do not give money to these people and do not put them in your car and take them somewhere or to your home.

We introduced the Just One Thing donation box on January 19th, on February 13th we delivered 142 individual snacks and 84 bottles of water to Just One Thing and 16 pencils to Battle Ground Schools.  Thank you POP family for your generosity.  

There is a list on the donation box of other items needed for hope bags, you are welcome to bring any of those items.  If you travel and stay in hotels and do not use the guest soaps and shampoos we are happy to have those items too.

Are there other ways to help?  Yes, you can help put Hope Bags together, you can be on a mentor team to reach out to homeless people.  We have contact information if that is an area of interest for you.  You can also follow Just One Thing Battle Ground on Facebook.

You can call Janet Crawford at 509-250-2133 or email her at">

Thank you again POP Family!
