The congregations of Bethel and Hemnes Lutheran Church lift up the people of Ukraine and Eastern Europe in prayer. If you would like to provide financial assistance to support refugees and humanitarian efforts currently underway in the region, Lutheran Disaster Response, a program of the ELCA, is accepting donations. The ELCA church body covers all administrative expenses, ensuring that all the funds donated to this effort go directly to those in need of assistance.
