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.
CALL PROCESS UPDATE: Due to circumstances beyond our control, the virtual interview was not held last week.
When: August 1-4

Breadbasket VOLUNTEERS Needed
The Moody County is seeking volunteers to help on Thursdays. If you are interested please contact Becky via Face-book or email at email@example.com
MOODY COUNTY CARES: COVID-19 Response The Moody County Ministerial Association and Moody County Cares are working together along with the Bread-basket, Maynard's, and others to coordinate a response to the needs for food and other essentials by the people of Moody County during the COVID-19 Pandemic. This effort will serve two groups of people: those who can't afford needed items such as food, soap, and laundry detergent, and those who can afford needed items but need to stay isolated for health reasons (seniors, immunocompromised, etc). Please contact the help center by dialing 211, by texting 898211 or reach out to us on moodycountycares.com If you would like to volunteer please visit www.moodycountycares.com/
Sound/video system operators needed: We are in continuous need of individuals/couples who will run the system. It is much easier than you think!! A training session is available; an instruction sheet leads you through every step. And we have mentors to sit beside you until you are comfortable. WE CAN’T project the service without someone running the computer. Let Jeremy, Becky Sayler, or the office know of your interest. Duties would be once a month or less.
