In 2005, Emmanuel Baptist Church (EBC) voted to enter into a sister church relationship with a congregation in Krasnoselya, Ukraine. EBC sent its first team that year led by Pastor John Cowan. Since then, EBC has sent seven more teams to Ukraine to assist in Day Camp ministries for children and teens. Eleven different people have participated in EBC Ukraine teams. Emmanuel continues to provide support to help our sister church with their Awana program, Sunday school, summer day camp ministry, and other specific needs of the church. The sister church relationship has been a blessing to both churches involved.
