We  recognize many of our church family will be severely impacted financially during this time of crisis. We encourage you to utilize the many resources available as far as food and financial help and know that our members will continue to support and look out for our neighbors, families, and community.

It is also critical that we continue to contribute financially to Zion during these stressful times.

Creator God, maker of all that is good.

Comforter God, restorer of peace between all peoples.

Redeemer God, healer of wounds that inflict trauma and chaos:

We turn to you this day crying out for an end to a war that rages across the land of Ukraine, 

threatens the lives of its inhabitants, and displaces millions of children no longer able to sleep in their beds, 

attend their schools, or play with their friends.

May your Spirit of peace soften the hearts of the politicians who rattle their sabers

 and threaten nuclear annihilation.

May your vision of a just world thwart the ambitions of dictators who are thirsty for conquer

 and lusting for lands over which to rule.

May your hope of shalom engender within our own hearts the call to let there be peace on Earth,

 and let it begin with us.

Help us find the pathway to peace, a Just Peace, built on human rights and equity not just in Ukraine

 but in every land where bombs and guns are the sounds to which children fall asleep and from which families flee.

You are the source of our peace.

You are the horizon of our hope.

You are the author of our love.

May the promise of your enduring peace, your abiding hope, and your everlasting love sustain us all

 and bring the promise of a new and better day to the people of Ukraine.
