"Our God Jesus Christ fills churches with His Holy presence. It is great that young people feel and answer His calling.



With faith and hope in our hearts we look for personal relations with God, and our path is the desire to be like Christ, be of His image, and be the source of God's Grace...

We are grateful that we are able to take responsibility and care for our church and make it stronger. It is a process of spiritual growth which helps to break prejudices and with the help of Holy Spirit make impossible possible.

And our participation in youth worships in the Samara United Methodist Church is evidence of this.
