VIRTUAL WORSHIP RESOURCES:

UKRAINE

How to assist the Ukrainian people
The United Methodist community in Ukraine, though quite small, is actively engaged in assisting neighbors in need. Global Ministries is in touch with the church’s leadership as well as with church leaders in countries welcoming those who are fleeing from violence in Ukraine.

If you wish to provide humanitarian assistance to the Ukrainian people in the wake of the Russian invasion of their country you may give a check to the church by marking it “Ukraine”. Your gift will provide direct assistance to those in Ukraine, as well as assistance to Ukrainians fleeing to neighboring countries.

Because of our United Methodist connectional structure, one hundred percent of all contributions go to the designated cause.

HIDDEN PROMISES – CATERPILLARS TO BUTTERFLIES

instructions will be provided. The order forms are in the Narthex for you to fill out.

All Orders Must be Placed by Sunday, March 13!
