Christmas in Russia is January 7, ministry gears up

While most of the world celebrated Christmas last week, the Orthodox church celebrates it on January 7. That means churches in Russia and some countries in the former Soviet Union are just getting ready to start their outreach events. Slavic Gospel Association is just one organization that’s getting ready, despite a troubled Russian economy, reports MNN.

President of SGA Bob Provost says the fall of the ruble is having an effect on churches. “Prices have doubled. So, it’s kind of like hurting the people both ways. The money is worth less, and the prices are going up.”

This isn’t stopping their Immanuel’s Child Christmas ministry, however. Provost says money is raised in the west and sent to their partnering churches to fund the Immanuel’s child Christmas event. “There’s going to be a great program. There’s going to be, in many cases, a Christmas drama. The Christmas story is told in every case. Great singing. Great refreshments.”

In addition, each child gets a Christmas gift which includes toys, clothing, treats, and Scripture.

“For most of the children, they come home saying it was the best thing they’ve ever experienced,” says Provost.

More importantly, Provost says, “Through this process, many children receive Christ as their Savior. Many start coming to Sunday school. Many of their family [members also] start coming to church as a result. The single greatest outreach in the former Soviet Union is the outreach at Christmas time.”
