What and Why is UMCOR Sunday?

During worship on Sunday, March 12, we received a special offering to support UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief).  What we collected will go to  behind-the-scenes administrative and operational expenses.  Why is it so important?  Because any other time you donate to an UMCOR project, 100% of what you give goes to the project you chose.

When we give on UMCOR Sunday (formerly One Great Hour of Sharing), we empower UMCOR to act as the arms and legs of Christ’s church. Our giving helps the most vulnerable in their darkest days.  We believe that all people have God-given worth and dignity — without regard to race, religion or gender.

Reaching people in more than 80 countries, including the United States, UMCOR provides humanitarian relief when war, conflict or natural disaster disrupt life to such an extent that communities are unable to recover on their own.

TOGETHER, WE DO MORE.
TOGETHER, WE CAN DO WHAT NO ONE CONGREGATION OR INDIVIDUAL CAN.

Thanks for caring and sharing.
