St. Paul United Church of Christ’s Rock Hard in Faith youth group joined World Vision’s mission to help provide food to those in need by participating in the 30-hour famine during the last 20 years. This year’s fundraiser benefited a few groups, including the Lutheran World Federation’s efforts to help relief efforts for Ukrainian refugees.
A large number of refugees entered Poland. The Lutheran World Federation provides accommodation throughout the country and transports humanitarian aid loads to Ukraine by minibus. On the way back, buses pick up Ukrainian families fleeing the war. They distribute goods both inside Ukraine and in places hosting refugees.
The youth group held their fast on March 19 and engaged in three active learning workshops. The youngsters went on a shopping spree to benefit the Fish & Loaves food pantry in Southgate and returned cans and bottles donated to benefit Ukrainian relief efforts. They also volunteered at Trinity St. Marks United Church of Christ, where they packed lunch bags for the Detroit Police Department to distribute to Detroit’s homeless and packed food boxes for those who need it. needed.
St. Paul United Church of Christ is located in Taylor.
