We Can Help Make a Difference


WENATCHEE - On Sunday May 21, 2 p.m., Wenatchee First United Methodist Church is sponsoring and hosting a special concert called Music For the Refugees. It will feature The Wenatchee Big Band, The Apollo Club, The Appleaires, a combined church choir, and other solo artists. 

Our concert will directly benefit Ukrainian refugee families in Chelan, Douglas, and Grant counties, through the Friends of Ukrainian Refugees (FOuR). Admission is free, and a free-will offering will be taken.

Did you know today there are around 50 Ukrainian refugee families in North Central Washington?  They’re quietly living among us, practicing, and learning English, going to school, finding their way around new neighborhoods; studying to get a driver’s license, finding jobs, paying their rent, and trying to make new friends and new lives.We watch the news and read the paper, shocked by devastating pictures of the war in Ukraine.

Many of us are feeling called to do more, and our words can only go so far.  When words fail music speaks.  Let’s show our compassion and caring, and truly make a difference for the Ukrainian families in our area.  Please join us and bring your extended family, friends, and neighbors.
