Slavic Harvest Festival 2023
October 7. Slavic Harvest Festival was traditionally held on the first Saturday of October on the territory of our church. The festival of Slavic faith, traditions and food gathered more than two thousand adults and children. Representatives of the Gagauz, Belarusian, Moldovan, Ukrainian and Russian cuisines served delicious and nourishing food to all comers.
“When it gets colder, we gather around the fire or fireplace to warm ourselves. It is the same in the spiritual world. The colder it gets and the farther away from God, the more people are depressed, isolated, disillusioned. We want to bless you and pray for you because God’s Word says you are not alone. As the Bread of Life Church, we are here to proclaim in a loud voice: Jesus Christ is the Savior and He wants to change your life, forgive your sins,” Pastor Alex Muzichuk addressed the guests.
“But you are not alone! God is with you in this world! He cares: His love will save you!” – famous singer Sergei Briksa from Florida sang his hit song. He was echoed by dozens of voices. There were also songs in different languages, representing the culture of Slavic peoples who live in Missouri.
Locations for every taste awaited visitors behind the stage: inflatable trampolines, archery, zipline, basketball, pom-pom fishing, bean bag toss, axe throwing, roller hockey and other games.
Funds raised from the festival supported the budget for the mission trip to Cuba.

October 22. The Feast of the Harvest at the Bread of Life Church was very musical. More than 200 Levites praised the Lord in 6 choirs. The choristers ranged in age from 4 to 70 years old. Songs of praise to the Lord and the preaching of God’s Word were sung in Russian, Ukrainian and English.
George Davidiuk preached on the importance of laboring for God and the burning torch that each of us should be. “What is a torch? It is the presence and power of the Holy Spirit! We are leaders who must inspire the next generation of leaders! It is not enough to teach our children to sing beautifully, it is important to pass the fire of the Holy Spirit to them so that they will sing in other tongues, zealous for spiritual gifts. The torch is to show the way to others by passing the fire, not the wood. Pass on the fire, not your commandments. There are good traditions, but remember: it is not fire, it is human. Traditions will not save anyone. The darker the night, the brighter the fire of God!”
At the end of the festive service, everyone blessed each other – the church ministers, and the pastors and deacons blessed the congregation and guests.
Power of the Cross Ministry
The Power of the Cross ministry team held a consecration and deliverance service in Colorado on October 27-29. 34 ministers from Missouri, Florida, North Carolina, California, Pennsylvania, Texas, Idaho, and Colorado met at the First Slavic Christian Church in Arvada.
About 400 people attended seminars and prayers, 70 of whom received personal ministry. Dozens of brothers and sisters, including children, testified of special visitation from the Lord, baptism with the Holy Spirit, and healing of spirit, soul, and body.
“I broke my leg skiing 6.5 years ago and all this time I felt pain in my knees, especially the left one. Jesus healed me today, I can finally pray on my knees,” shares Svetlana.
The first snow fell in Colorado on Saturday as a symbol of purity and holiness. The Holy Spirit worked in hearts, God’s special power and miracles were revealed, and people received freedom from mental problems and demonic forces that have plagued them for years. “Our team has yet to heal or set free a single person. All glory belongs 100% to the Lord alone!” – emphasized Victor Kashubin, founder and leader of the Power of the Cross ministry.
Upcoming plans include Power of the Cross ministries in Chicago, IL November 17-19, 2023 and Jacksonville, FL January 19-21, 2024.
Important Information for Parents!
A special request from all children’s and teens’ ministries. If your child is sick, sneezing or coughing, please do not bring them to church for services or children’s choir practice. We have so many children and they get infected from sick children very quickly. It is not aesthetically correct, goes against common sense, and is not fair to the parents who are doing everything they can to protect their children. Thank you for your understanding.
