Crisis in Ukraine

Crisis in Ukraine

The devastation and death caused by Russia’s invasion has caused an immense humanitarian crisis that becomes more precarious as the situation continues to unfold. Life-changing and world-altering events are taking place and, in the midst of this, it is easy to feel helpless. Blackhawk Church’s response is to pray and give. We are people who pray and can be united in prayer with Christians in Ukraine, and in bordering countries who are loving their neighbors as they flee their homeland. In addition to praying, we encourage you to give financially, directly to relief organizations that are tangibly responding. The organizations listed below are the most direct ways of getting the funds to where they are most needed.

We are monitoring these events and will update ways to get involved here or on our social media.

Ways to Pray

  • For God’s love to be a source of strength
  • For help and comfort for those who are wounded and have lost loved ones
  • For Ukrainians in distress who are fleeing their homes and seeking refuge in neighboring countries
  • For people in bordering towns assisting Ukrainians – for perseverance, supplies and support
  • For God’s protection, safety, and spiritual protection for all people
  • For God’s intervention and for wisdom for world leaders
  • For the Church in Ukraine and neighboring countries – that they would bring spiritual hope and for hearts to be open to the gospel
