Ukrainian Refugee Assistance
Many of us have felt a heaviness concerning Russia’s invasion and war in Ukraine. Alongside that heaviness comes the question, “What on earth can I do as a simple person in Siloam Springs?” Below are a few simple but significant ways in which you can intercede regarding this war:
1. Pray for the people involved: fleeing Ukrainians, Ukrainian leaders, Russian leaders, Russian citizens, those helping with refugee assistance, our country’s and other countries’ leaders to make wise decisions that bring an end to the war.
2. Spread goodness and mercy in your own spheres of influence: your street, your family, your neighborhood, your place of employment.
3. Donate to the EPC’s International Disaster Relief Fund. Funds received will benefit the work of several operations helping Ukrainian refugees.
During Holy Week this year we will hold two special services outside of our Sunday services. The first will be a Good Friday service on Friday, April 15, 6-7 p.m. in the sanctuary. The second will be an Easter Sunrise Service at 6:30 a.m. at the Memorial Park Chautauqua Amphitheater located downtown. This will be a joint service with First UMC, CCF, First Baptist, and New Heights. Anyone from the community is welcome to attend and encouraged to invite a neighbor or friend. We look forward to worshipping with you during Holy Week.
Also available is a Holy Week for Kids resource. Printed copies are available on Sunday morning.
