Seeking Shelter in St. Louis: A Ukrainian Church is Born

"He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty." -Psalm 91:1 (ESV)

Two years ago this week, after months of navigating the Uniting for Ukraine program, we were relieved to have our friends on U.S. soil and finally pick them up from the STL airport on July 2.

A lot has happened since that day, including the start of Shelter Church for Ukrainian refugees in May of 2023, with services conducted in a mix of Ukrainian and English to accommodate any who would like to gather with them for worship. Shelter has become a significant place for this community to meet and fellowship together in their own language.

In the following interview, Volodymyr shares how the Lord has worked in his own life and through this now year old church in some extraordinary ways.

If you are in the St. Louis area and know any recent Ukrainian residents, or if you would simply like to visit, all are welcome to attend. Shelter presently meets in Hazelwood, MO on most Sunday afternoons.
