Gethsemane Church organized the same family outreach “Father, Mother and Me—Ukrainian Christian Family” in Chervonohrad on the city stadium. Greek Catholic, Orthodox, and Evangelical churches joined to propagate Christian family values together. 12 families from 6 churches of 4 different denominations took part in the event. The idea was to communicate Christian values to all who would collect on the stadium through a series of relays and championships with teams made of father, mother and child, each relay illustrating a certain Christian family value.
Moreover, all church ministers addressed the people with the word on what God wants a family to be. Special speakers (left to right) : Father Mykhailo, Orthodox Church, Father Ignatiy,Greek –Catholic Church, Vasyl Karvatskiy – Director of the Stadium, Valeriy Gavrilyuk, Head of the City Sports Dep, Deacon Vasyl, Orthodox Church, Pastor Valeriy Marchenko, Gethsemane.
