This Interfaith Concert is presented in appreciation for the outpouring of community support, received to ease suffering in Ukraine.  As the crisis goes on, the conflict is no longer intensely covered in headline news; yet the hardships have no less diminished.  And winter brings new challenges and sacrifices that are being endured.

We continue to offer support and donations, and most importantly pray for peace to come quickly.  We think of our brothers and sisters in Ukraine who exemplify courageous perseverance.

Scripture reminds us that God never fails in his promises to those who are faithful.   In this Special Concert Event, we unite our hearts with the people of Ukraine.  Songs of joy and hope echo God’s intention for all to gain the happiness of eternal peace.

May all hearts be filled with joy and hope in bringing light to shine in the darkness.

May all hearts find lasting peace.

May God protect the people of Ukraine and all people everywhere who are persecuted.
