Crates for Ukraine

 

 

Updates:

  • Please endeavor to have all donations to the church by Sunday, July 10th. Our church member will be leaving that next week to courier the crates to Krakow.
  • Lists have been updated with most recent requests as of 6/28/22. Please note that the new items added are marked with an asterisk (*).

Colleyville Presbyterian Church directly supports missionaries who serve and minister in L’viv, Ukraine. We have supported one of these missionaries, Doug Shepherd, since the mid 1990’s. Doug grew up in our church and most recently visited us on a Sunday morning in August 2021 when he and his family were here in the states for a little while. Their team is now both continuing to minister in L’viv as well as coordinating efforts to serve Ukrainian refugees in Krakow, Poland. You can see information about what our denomination’s missionaries are facing and doing hereYou can also find stories like this about how our team is ministering.

The Ukraine team has requested that churches here in the states gather supplies in large crates (basically foot lockers) and deliver the crates to them to distribute the enclosed supplies to those in need; they’ve dubbed this effort “Crates for Ukraine.”

CPC invites you to join us in an effort to fill 6 crates full of supplies that a member of our church will personally courier and deliver to the Ukraine team in Krakow. Here’s how you can help:

Pray: Pray for the Ukraine team as they continue to minister in the midst of chaos; pray for their safety, health, strength, perseverance in the midst of trial, and rest as needed. Pray for a swift end to this conflict. Visit https://mtw.org/ukraine-crisis to see prayer updates. Also pray that these crates and our efforts would be a blessing to those in crisis. Pray for the safety of our church member who will escort these supplies and that their service to our missionary team in Ukraine would be a blessing.

Purchase items for the crates: Purchase items from one of the lists below and bring them to the church or purchase items off of one of our Amazon wish lists that will be delivered to the church. Please keep in mind that they have requested that we only pack the crates with the items on their lists. Please do not donate items that don’t appear on these lists. Please endeavor to have all donations to the church by Sunday, July 10th. Our church member will be leaving that next week to courier the crates to Krakow.

Share this information with your friends: We desire to reach beyond just the immediate Colleyville Presbyterian congregation to accomplish our goal of filling 6 crates of supplies. Share the idea of Crates for Ukraine (#C4U #CratesForUkraine) with those in your community and invite them to participate.

Give to our church’s Deacons’ Fund: A monetary gift to our Deacons’ Fund through Tithe.ly (select “Deacons’ Fund” in the “Give to” drop-down box) will afford CPC’s Deacons the flexibility to disburse funds at their discretion to help with this effort.
