From Pastor Dave Zemke:


Our goal as Christians is to both worship God and welcome people to a relationship with a loving God. It’s pretty easy for Christians to get this mixed up because we’re all human. Sometimes we fall on one side rather than the other. Sometimes we do both imperfectly. That’s how life in service of God as a human is. But the bottom line is that God is always at work in us, and that’s something to keep before our eyes as the rest of the article goes forth.

            The goal of Christian evangelism and outreach is to connect people with a loving God. This is not the same thing as increasing church attendance. Many times it is a happy consequence as people see our faith community and want to be a part of it. Many times, however, the newly converted Christian chooses to journey with another faith community. And that’s wonderful that they’re connected to God’s word.

            Sometimes it’s also helpful to think of all of this outreach talk in wildly different terms. Let us pretend, for a few moments, that the church is a business. It is our duty to be welcoming and delightful and winsome when people walk into our showroom (which we call a sanctuary.) It does us great credit when people feel welcome to browse our Spiritual goods when we are nothing but happy and helpful. This is wonderful and a blessing from God. But this isn’t outreach in the same way that working well in a showroom isn’t proper “advertising.”

            All businesses (and in this way church is the same) need to communicate their goods or services. In our case that would be a relationship with Christ, the sacraments, community, and eternal life. Our “advertising” is evangelism. Sometimes churches do take out adds in papers or put on television commercials. This is only advertising and not evangelism or outreach. And this is mainly helpful for people who are already looking for a “service provider,” or for us, a church. Many businesses get along just fine by word of mouth. And this is a good form of evangelism that we can rightly work with. This is how our Immanuel Preschool has done well for almost thirty years. Finally, some businesses use testimonials for their advertising. While it might sound corny to hear actual clients talking about how good a service is, you can’t buy that kind of publicity. And that’s the point. Our own testimonies, our own life stories are worth more than any add in a paper or even the best, friendliest congregation on Sunday morning.

Business exists so we can make a living selling things people need. That’s all well and good. Christianity exists so we can have a right relationship with God our Father through Jesus Christ in the Holy Spirit. While businesses want to advertise to make money, we want to advertise/evangelize because we fear for people’s souls. This has nothing to do with our church attendance and everything to do with our neighbor’s eternal destination. Pulling this off successfully does require a number of parts, from a showroom/sanctuary, to a product/gospel, to a advertising/evangelizing team who go out into the world to bring in customers/the lost. 

At the start of the article I suggested that we do all of this evangelism imperfectly because we’re human. It is the case, because we’re fallible humans, that some of us have gotten the wrong ideas about evangelism, that some of us are on one side more than the other, and that we’re not doing everything right all the time. That’s not a special criticism of our church. That’s a factual statement about any church, anywhere. The gospel is that God works through all of these problems we have in following through to His great glory. The goal of the gospel, and our goal to, is to connect people with Jesus Christ. And we are allowed to be a part of it. Praise God for His gift of ministry to us and praise God for welcoming us into His family.

News from the Preschool


Happy 2019!!!

January arrived with lots of happy faces!  The children and staff came back from our Christmas break refreshed and full of energy!  We have been focusing on Cultures of the World and Friendship in January.  We held Earthquake/Storm Drills this month to help keep us prepared in case of an emergency.  We had lots of learning about snow, letters, numbers, reading and dramatic play learning!  A great start to 2019!

Lent Season and Chapel:

We hold Chapel in a more reflective manner through the Lent season, beginning Mar. 4.  Lent is the preparation period before Easter, in which we reflect on Jesus’ sacrifice for us.  We ask that you hold any conversations in the Narthex, outside of the Sanctuary, during this time of Lent.  We will have a Prayer basket at the entrance of the Sanctuary, where families, staff and children may put any prayer request.  These will be prayed over during Chapel, as a general prayer, no details will be shared.  We ask that the children file in quietly with their class, rather than come in individually, whenever possible.  

Special Chapel option for Ash Wednesday:

Pastor Dave will offer a special Chapel on Ash Wednesday, March 6 @ 9:00am for any students that would like to attend.  Please let your teacher know, if you give your child permission for this special Chapel.  There will be teacher supervision at this service.  It is similar in length to our regular Chapel services.

“Wild West Round-Up!”

Howdy Partners!  Mosey on over to our annual Preschool/Kindergarten Auction!  We will hold it on March 9 at 5:00pm.  It is an evening full of old west fun at a starlit Corral!  There will be many wonderful items to bid on at both our Silent and Live Auctions.  Once again, this awesome event is free!  Tickets are limited and will be available on February 11.  We are looking for donations for both the live and silent auctions.  If you would like to donate an item(s) to our Auction, we will be collecting them in February.  This is a large event and our primary fundraiser.  It requires lots of parent help!  Please let me know if there is any area in which you would like to serve for this event.  

Registration 2019- 20!!!

It’s here!  Yes, Registration for the Preschool and Kindergarten classes will begin on January 7, 2019!  We will again offer exclusive registration to all of our Preschool/Kindergarten families and Prince of Peace members for the month of January.  On February 1, we will open up Registration to the community.  Registration packets are available on the sign-in tables, on the PSK Office table and from Miss Diane.  Some classes fill up quickly, so make sure you get your Registration in early to hold your spot!

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.

Illness:

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

2)Frequent “wet” sneezing and/or coughing; thick or green nose drainage

3)Accompanying severe aches and pains

4)Nausea

5)Head Lice

6)Family member with serious communicable disease

Weather Policy:

We follow the Battle Ground School District’s inclement weather policies and procedures.  To reach their weather hotline, call: 885-5343 or go to their website: battlegroundps.org.  If BGPS has no school, we won’t either.  If they have a one, two or three hour late start for any part of the district, we will cancel all of our classes.  If any of their preschool and/or kindergarten classes are cancelled, ours are cancelled as well.

Valentines’ Day Parties:

Our Valentine’s Day Parties are held during regular class times.  We love to have families participate!  Watch for sign-up forms or talk with your teacher for ways that you can help!
