Each week we are asking our congregation to be in prayer for one of our supported missionaries or local mission agency. This week we are asking everyone to bring Batavia Covenant Preschool to God in prayer.
School began for these children this past Tuesday, September 7. We are extremely grateful for all the help received from volunteers, including extensive playground preparation, painting of classrooms, and many odd jobs. Our DCFS license was renewed and all but one staff member has returned for the new school year! Orientation was a joyful time of again having many children and their families in the building.
We ask for prayers of comfort for each child as they begin the year and for protection from the virus. Please pray for God to equip the work of our staff and to help each child and family member be welcomed with the love of Christ. As you have opportunity this week, please pray for each preschool staff member by name. They are:
Jen Coyle Chris Cramer Heather Fiedler Donna Galloway
Cindy Hall Barb Hjelm Alanna Landin Dotti Pitz
Kelly Sutton Maureen Sutton Annette Tortorella Leesa Urben
Also, let’s thank God for our church family who funded a full year scholarship this summer. Together with Batavia United Way “Success by Six” partner scholarships, we are providing three children full scholarships for this school year and we understand a few more applications are in process to allow us to provide a great year of preschool for even more children from our community.
