Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
John 15:13 (NIV)

The war in Ukraine
As a church, we cannot sit idly by - we have chosen to serve refugees ...

We need at least



Every hryvnia / dollar / euro can save a life.
$50,000 a month
Why is it this sum of money?
More than 1 million refugees have already been evacuated through our city. We accept from 30 to 65 people in church every day. Also, these people need food / medicines / clothes / personal hygiene items/ and just support…
1.
More than 100,000 refugees settled in Poltava. Every week in our church we give away 500 food bags for refugees who remained in our city. We also tell these people about Christ.
2.
60-70% of the humanitarian aid that came to our church was delivered to the hotspots.
3.
Tens of thousands of people have lost their jobs. The state support is not enough to take care of everyone.
4.
The flow of refugees to Poltava is still increasing. The enemy has been mercilessly bombing and attacking Kharkiv, Luhansk and Donetsk oblasts (regions) which border with Poltava.
5.
Thousands of people need humanitarian aid in Poltava oblast (region).
6.
What else do we want to do?
  • Develop the youth ministry. The war forced young people to move to other cities, where they are left without support or communication. That's why our church wants to become a place where young people of Poltava will find friends and get acquainted with Jesus.

  • Our desire is to find financial support for the team that serves 24/7.
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’… ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’

Matthew 25: 35-40,45 (NIV)"
