Children's Workers It probably seems like we ask for children's workers all the time. That's because it takes a lot of volunteers to run the children's department. We need extra hands to assist in children's church and the Nursery on Sundays. Ukraine Offering Like many you've probably wondered if there is anything you can do about the war in Ukraine. The Church of the Nazarene is active in both Russia and Ukraine serving Jesus. Nazarene compassionate ministries is active handing out crisis care kits in Ukraine as well as assisting with refugee resettlement in throughout Europe. This Sunday we will be taking a special offering for Nazarene Compassionate Ministries which will go towards humanitarian efforts in Ukraine and Poland. For more information, see here: https://ncm.org/ukraine-crisis Grief Counseling We've all lost a lot over the last two years: friends, family, work, play, etc. Many of us could use help through our grieving process, and there is help. We have partnered with Beacon of Hope, a Christian Counseling service to provide group based grief counseling. We're still waiting on the dates, but if this is something which you might be interested in, please speak to Pastor Ryan
