Mission Focus

Each week we are asking our congregation to be in prayer for one of our supported missionaries or local mission agency. This week we ask that we each bring the Restrepo family to God in prayer. Lisandro and Patty Restrepo, our missionary partners in Oaxaca, Mexico, report that they have been very busy traveling throughout their region the past several weeks. They are engaged in a variety of ways – helping restore those who have been abused and exploited, working with pastors and other local leaders to help foster Christian formation, evangelism and outreach, congregational vitality, community and leadership development, and violence prevention and intervention. They send us their greetings and express their thanks for our support. Let’s pray for them and their ministry throughout the coming week. Pray that they would experience a warm and dynamic personal devotional life and grow in their relationship with God; pray for good

Preschool Senior Pals

Our Senior preschool classes at Batavia Covenant Church Preschool (for 4 and 5 year old children) are looking to connect with Seniors who live at the Holmstad or elsewhere. We have 20 children in the Senior classes and would LOVE to match up each child with a Senior to write letters to each other, perhaps come to visit at the Holmstad or have a special event together. If you are interested in becoming a Senior Pal with a preschool child, please contact: Leesa Urben at 630-879-3795 or leesa@bataviacov.org. Hope you will consider this special opportunity!
