Ukraine Disaster Relief

Many of you may feel led to support Ukraine at this time. It may feel that there is not much we can do as we are so far away and detached from the situation; however, we want to encourage you that we can both pray for Ukraine as well as  financially support the relief work in Ukraine and support Ukrainian refugees in Eastern Europe.

Despite the horrific war and disaster in Ukraine, we are seeing the Body of Christ making a huge impact. In Matthew 5:14-16, Jesus said: “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven." Now is the time for the church to shine! Now is the time when the church really does do what it does. It serves the needs of the people with the hands of Christ, and what God gives, and it is God who provides those resources. Below are some links to updates from missionaries and local pastors serving the needs of the people in Ukraine!
