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 John and Letha Kerl to God in prayer. John and Letha Kerl serve as the regional coordinators of the Covenant’s work in Europe and Russia. We understand that, just like us, their ministry of care and support for missionaries assigned to them has been significantly impacted by the world-wide pandemic. The Kerls request prayer for: Safety and health for our Serve Globally personnel serving in Europe. Families whose children are now home and no longer in school. Refugees, immigrants and other vulnerable people. New ministry opportunities in the midst of a shaken world. An openness to the invitation to slow down and truly listen in new ways to God. As you pray for the Kerls, please

We, at Batavia Covenant Church, have been praying and brainstorming over how to celebrate Easter despite the fact that we will not be able to be together physically. This led us to the decision that we will be having a virtual choir leading us in worship on Easter Sunday! Our virtual choir will be made up of individual pre-recorded voices which will be mixed together to create a choir. If you are interested in singing in the virtual choir, please contact Pastor Dan for more details. Please note that all voice recordings must be submitted by Tuesday, April 7th in order to participate in the virtual choir.

We have entered the Lenten season. Lent is a time of intentional self-examination and exploration of the possibilities of life with God. We will be engaging the themes of Lent in the upcoming Sundays. Come join us! We are offering some new spiritual growth resources to help us on our Lenten journeys. One is a weekly devotional resource on the topic of human trafficking from the Covenant’s new FREE initiative. You can download the devotional and find out more at covchurch.org/FREE. Also, we encourage you to read with us a new book, The Common Rule, which is a collection of daily and weekly practices designed to cut through the noise of our busy lives and help us grow in our faith.
