The Polish Reformed Church was founded in 1551 in Southern Poland.  After World War II it was reorganized as the Polish Evangelical Reformed Church which continues today the rich tradition of Polish Reformed Christianity.  There are no precise statistics about church membership but there are approximately 4,000 members spread across 17 places of worship in Poland.  Parishes vary greatly in size from Warsaw (about 400 members), to ┼üód┼║ with about 120 members, to Pstr─à┼╝na with 14 members.  Members of the Polish Evangelical Reformed Church are a tiny minority in a population of 38 million Poles.  Global Ministries is in partnership with the Evangelical Reformed Church and missionaries Doug and Liz Searles are located in ┼üód┼║.

In-kind donations are helpful to the ministries of the Evangelical Reformed Church in Poland. The Searles have provided the following list of items which would be helpful:

  • Sheet music for a favorite anthem or song your choir sang in worship recently
  • Easy good arrangements for organ preludes, offertories, postludes (no/little pedal)
  • Music for bell choirs
  • Copies of “The Message” (the Peterson translation) for gifts to pastors, lay leaders and youth
  • Contemporary theological books on all issues, but especially concerning outreach, the missional church, reflections on gender and sexuality issues, and books of interest to seminarians

If you or your church is ready to ship such items to Poland, please contact Global Ministries Resource Development at gifts@dom.disciples.org for shipping guidelines and address.   Or, you are welcome to send financial gifts for these items to be purchased by the Evangelical Reformed Church in Poland itself.
