One Great Hour of Sharing Sunday is March 6
On March 6, 2016, you are invited to join with thousands of other congregations across the connection in a special offering to support the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR).
When our congregations participate in One Great Hour of Sharing, we help cover the operating budget of UMCOR. This is a powerful story.
Your support makes it possible for UMCOR to direct 100% of all other contributions to the projects donors specify, instead of using this money on administrative or fundraising costs.
It is a powerful statement that your gifts enable UMCOR to respond in times of crisis. UMCOR is an incredible organization that we are honored to have in our family.
- When Katrina struck in 2005, UMCOR was there with heartfelt prayers, tears, monetary donations and volunteering spirits.
- After earthquakes struck Japan and Haiti, UMCOR was there.
- After forest fires displace hundreds of families, UMCOR is there.
- As millions of refugees and migrants seek out safety and opportunity, UMCOR is there.
All over the world, UMCOR is there, providing compassion and hope to those who desperately need it.
