Support the Ukrainian People

People ask, “How can I help the people of Ukraine?”

The best answer for United Methodists is through the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR). Here is how your financial gift to UMCOR would be helpful:

“UMCOR’s work in Ukraine is being funded with gifts to Advance #982450, International Disaster Response and Recovery. Grants for immediate relief have been given to United Methodist partners in Ukraine as well as neighboring nations—Poland, Hungary, Romania and Slovakia—to support those who remain in Ukraine as well as those who have fled the violence. In addition, grants are being awarded to partners like ACT Alliance, a global faith-based coalition working in 120 countries around the world. These grants are providing humanitarian assistance in the form of food, water, clothing, shelter and other necessary supplies. We are in continuous dialogue with UMC entities and other partners throughout Europe to identify additional ways UMCOR might assist. The situation in Eastern Europe is evolving and Global Ministries and UMCOR will continue to respond in the months and years ahead.”

There are different ways you can give to UMCOR:

1) Directly by visiting their website at: There you will find giving portals that will help direct your gift to Advance #982450.

2) Click on the ‘GIVE’ button here on Covenant’s website. Select the ‘Operations’ option and be sure to memo your gift: UMCOR.

3) Place your gift in the offering plate on Sunday mornings; mail in your check; or stop by during the week. We worship at 10am on Sundays and office hours are Monday 9 to 5; Wednesday through Friday 9 to 5.

Because UMCOR is supported administratively by The United Methodist Church you can be sure 100% of your donation will be used for its directed purpose.

In addition to financial gifts, please pray for the people of Ukraine, and for our United Methodist brothers and sisters in Ukraine AND in Russia.
