Support for Ukraine Refugees – Ocala First United Methodist Church

Rev. Mike Zdorow of the Florida Conference and his wife Zenie, both with strong ties to Ukraine, have been instrumental in identifying ways to safely and effectively send funds to help refugees within Ukraine through the United Methodist Church. At the same time, the Florida Conference has made available a Conference Advance Special to help Ukraine refugees crossing the border into Poland. Please consider donations to these funds as we continue to hear the cries of our brothers and sisters in Ukraine and are being given the great privilege of “sharing in this service to the Lord’s people.” (2 Cor. 8:4)

100% of your gift will go right away to United Methodist churches in Ukraine and Poland on the front lines of this refugee humanitarian crisis.
