Ukraine Appeal.jpg

APPEAL FOR UKRAINE

The United Church of Christ has issued an appeal for the people of Ukraine and will be working with global partners to assist vulnerable communities within that country.

“Members of the United Church of Christ are joining the global community to respond to the events unfolding in Ukraine,” said the Rev. Karen Georgia Thompson, associate general minister, Wider Church Ministries and Global Operations. ”We are praying earnestly for peace and for the hundreds of thousands of people displaced by the war. And, we are adding our resources to ensure that all can have access to safety and shelter as the fighting escalates.”

Gifts to the UCC Ukraine Emergency Appeal will provide shelter, food and other care to war refugees and internally displaced people. It also will help refugees and asylum seekers from African, Middle Eastern and other countries who had sought refuge in Ukraine and now are twice displaced, as well as other citizens of more than 125 countries living in Ukraine.

MEET OUR PASTOR

The Rev. Dave Inglis

Dave grew up in Denver, Colorado attending a UCC church where his father was the minister. He has always been very active in his church, even if it sometimes meant being the only one to go to his youth group. While in high school, Dave went regularly to Camp La Forêt, and served on the youth leadership team. He attended the Colorado College, where he sang in an a cappella group and studied physics. When asked how he went from physics to being a minister, he explains, “Physics explains how the world works, religion explains why.”


Before becoming a minister, Dave worked at Wells Fargo Bank in Denver and was a counselor at camp where he played guitar and served for two years as director of senior high camps. He attended the UCC General Synod in 2001, where the music, preaching, worship, and fellowship helped him realize and accept his call to ministry. In 2006, he graduated from the Chicago Theological Seminary. At his orientation there, Dave met his future wife, Felicia. They have two sons: Zach and Nathan. Dave has served UCC churches in Western Springs and Crystal Lake, Illinois.
