High School Parking

Thank you for your interest in our high school parking program. Please read the instructions below carefully as the registration procedures have changed for this year. As we have done the last couple of years, this year's new registration selection will be done via an online lottery instead of on a first-come, first-served basis as in the past. See below for more details. In addition, this year all registrations (renewals and new registrations) will be done online. Both will be received from June 22 until July 9, 2020. Payment Cost per parking spot for the 2020-2021 school year is $175.

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 famliy to God in prayer. After seven years of ministry in Oaxaca, Mexico, Patty, Lisandro and Samuel are moving this summer to be part of a new outreach ministry in the large city of Leon among a vulnerable people. The Restrepos are our Covenant missionary partners serving in Mexico. In fact, they are right in the middle of their move this week and ask us to be in prayer for all that’s involved. Complicating all of this was the earthquake that hit the Oaxaca region just last week. Please pray for them each day in the week ahead. Pray for the logistics of their move – you know, all the packing and moving of boxes, the sad farewells with friends
    Want to share the Good News with kids and families this summer? Wondering how to do that in this challenging time? Well, the good news is that “SOME GOSPEL NEWS” SUMMER OUTREACH is the perfect opportunity to do that! SGN, or “SOME GOSPEL NEWS”, is our outreach to children and families this summer in place of Soccer Camp. We are super excited about it, and we think that you will be too! Playing off of the YouTube sensation Some Good News, we want to share Some GOSPEL News! We will premiere a new episode of “Some Gospel News” on YouTube (youtube.com/bataviacov) each Thursday beginning on Thursday, June 18 and running through early July. Each episode will have a biblical theme sharing God’s love and will feature videos and clips of families completing activities and challenges that will be sent out at the start of each week, on Sunday afternoon.
We are excited to announce that starting on July 8th, every Wednesday night throughout the months of July and August, we will be hosting a discussion group on the book The Color of Compromise by Jemar Tisby, and we hope that you will be a part of it! The book group discussion will take place over Zoom, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., and will be facilitated by Lynnea Miller and Pastor Eric.  The Color of Compromise is about the long history of racism and complicity in the Church, and how we as the Church today can take steps towards becoming anti-racist. If you would like to be a part of this book study, or are merely intrigued, please contact Lynnea Miller at lynnea@bataviacov.org, everyone is welcome!  When you contact Lynnea, she will send you the zoom link to join our first meeting on July 8th. For that meeting, plan to
