This Sunday, June 12th, PCPC will have a special preacher reporting to us on how the offering for relief for Ukrainian refugees is being spent: Professor Marek Kucharski, the CFO/Chancellor of the Evangelical School of Theology in Wrocław (ESTW) in Poland. Marek will be speaking at the 8:30, 9, and 11:00 services. This special offering has been the largest in PCPC’s history at over $150,000.00
Then, at 12:15, everyone is invited to a lunch in the Fellowship Hall where Marek will be speaking and answering questions. You can expect the professor to address the efforts the seminary, in partnership with other Christian organizations and churches, has made to help the refugees from Ukraine. He will also speak about the continuing outlook of the conflict in Ukraine and Poland’s relationship to it.
PCPC has a special relationship with ESTW Seminary, which is the only private accredited Protestant seminary in Wroclaw, Poland. The seminary equips Christians for ministry and service in Protestant churches and in their communities, including missionary service.
PCPC has already sent more than $150,000 to the Seminary this year, which is carefully using that money for direct aid provided by seminary professors, staff, and students, and in participation with several churches and Christian charities it knows and trusts, who also are providing essential services for Ukrainian refugees.
Gifts through PCPC for EWST are a great way to make a stand for Christ and demonstrate stewardship in this part of the world. Our Pentecost Offering this year goes to help Ukrainian refugees through the Seminary, and you can donate online at www.palmaceia.org/giving.
