OFFERING FOR UKRAINE: Since the beginning of
Russia’s war against Ukraine on Feb. 24, millions of people have fled the country and are seeking refuge in neighboring countries including Hungary, Moldova, Poland, Romania and Slovakia. There are major humanitarian concerns for both internally displaced people and refugees. Many people fleeing their homes in Ukraine need shelter and basic necessities such as food, water and toiletries. Care for people also include pastoral and psychological support to address the trauma they’ve endured.
ELCA Lutheran Disaster Response is accompanying our companions in Ukraine, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia, as well as ecumenical partners such as Lutheran World Federation and Church World Service, in their humanitarian responses to the crisis created by Russia’s war against Ukraine. These partners provide refugees with immediate support and supplies such as food, blankets, water and hygiene kits.
Your gifts will support people impacted by the war. Gifts designated to "Eastern Europe Crisis" will be used in full (100%) for direct response to assist those affected.
We have seen the devastation on TV and other media sources of the country of Ukraine and its people, and it cannot be unseen. God invites us to help others, especially when we have seen the incredible need.
We will be taking an offering in the back of church for the next few Sundays in May to be given to the ELCA Disaster Response. Please consider being generous to those who have lost so much.
