LABC Update – February 23, 2023

Jim Hopkins

February 22, 2023


Tomorrow, February 24th, is the first anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The invasion is a terrifying example of what happens when religion, nationalism and authoritarian government are mixed together.

When Chris Schelin was in Amsterdam last month to work at the International Baptist Theological Seminary, which serves the European Baptist Federation and wider Baptist community, he met the Ukranian pastor interviewed in this article.




This coming Tuesday at 6:00 pm Dr. Monica Eppinger will be with us on LABC Zoom to share her expertise on what is happening in Ukraine one year and four days after the Russian invasion.

Prayers for the war-ravaged peoples of the world,

Pastor Jim


Pastor Carolyn will lead Together In Spirit tonight at 6:00.
