Wondering How You Can Help the People of Ukraine?
United Methodists and others wishing to provide humanitarian assistance to the Ukrainian people in the wake of the Russian invasion of their country may contribute to Advance #982450, UMCOR International Disaster Response and Recovery. This fund will provide direct assistance to those in Ukraine as well as assistance to Ukrainians fleeing to neighboring countries.
Gifts to support the people of Ukraine can be made in the following ways:
By toll free telephone: 888-252-6174
By check with “Advance #982450-Ukraine” written on the memo line, either mailed and addressed to Global Ministries/UMCOR, GPO, P.O. Box 9068, New York, NY, 10087-9068 or given at or through any United Methodist church
One hundred percent of all Advance contributions go to the designated cause.
The United Methodist community in Ukraine, though quite small, is actively engaged in assisting neighbors in need. Global Ministries is in touch with the Church’s leadership as well as with church leaders in countries welcoming those who are fleeing from violence in Ukraine.

CALL TO WORSHIP
Christ Jesus, through he was in the form of God,
did not county equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself,
taking the form of a servant, being born in our likeness. And being found in human form he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name of which is above every name, That at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
OPENING HYMN: “Hosanna, Loud Hosanna” #278 UMH
Lord Jesus, we recall you coming, and we raise our Palm branches.
We celebrate and sing, shout and praise.
Our Hosannas echo, as long ago they rung through the streets of Jerusalem.
Save us! Free us!
Yet we wonder how often the stones have cried out in our place.
How often have we seen affliction in others and done nothing?
How often have we fallen short of fulfilling your purposes for us?
Today, as we sing and shout our Hosannas once again, let your mind be in us.
Today, send your Spirit upon us, that we might have your mind.
Lord Jesus, today make us holy;
today make us free so we can praise you with our lips and with our lives.
This we pray, trusting in your matchless grace. Amen.
SCRIPTURE: Psalm 118:1-2, 19-29 Read by: Maureen Park Luke 19:28-40

DOXOLOGY “Praise God from Whom all Blessings Flow” #95 UMH
The Lord be with you. And also with you. Lift up your hearts. We lift them up to the Lord. Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. It is right to give our thanks and praise.
...And so, with your people on earth and all the company of heaven
we praise your name and join their unending hymn:
Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,
Heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.
...And so, in remembrance of these your mighty acts in Jesus Christ,
we offer ourselves in praise and thanksgiving
as a holy and living sacrifice, in union with Christ's offering for us,
as we proclaim the mystery of faith.
Christ has died; Christ is risen; Christ will come again.
...Through your Son Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit in your holy Church,
all honor and glory is yours, almighty Father (God ), now and for ever. Amen.
