The Ukrainian Lutheran Church has launched her weekly Concordia radio-program on the local radio FM station in Kyiv - Radio Kyiv 98 FM (http://radio.kiev.fm). The radio-program is broadcast every Saturday at 7:45 p.m. Kyiv time. Bishop Horpynchuk is the preacher. The Concordia radio-program is directed for outreach in the capital of Ukraine, a city of about 5 million inhabitants.
This program has become possible thanks to the WELS grant for the ULC.
On September 28th Serhiy Nikolayenko, ULC Synodical Council member and a former President of the Council of the Resurrection Lutheran Church has been called to his heavenly home. Brother Serhiy was 73 years old. He has been a good and faithful friend, advisor and brother to many of us in the Ukrainian Lutheran Church. Our sorrow is sweetened, however by sure, comforting and truthful words of the Lord Jesus Christ, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die" (John 11:25). We will see Brother Serhiy alive again in the time of resurrection. Please keep in your prayers Brother Seriy's closest family and especially his wife, Zoya. May the Lord, kind and graceful strengthen us with His Word and Sacrament!
