On UMCOR Sunday, March 31, a special offering directly affects the ability of the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) to respond immediately to disasters and other calamities.
UMCOR does not receive apportionment funds. Gifts received through UMCOR Sunday (formerly One Great Hour of Sharing) help UMCOR cover its administrative costs.
When you join with other United Methodists to support UMCOR, you equip UMCOR staff to work globally to alleviate suffering and advance hope and healing. Through relationships with local organizations and trained community leaders, UMCOR can activate its network and provide emergency funds as soon as they know of an urgent need.
Does someone in your conference have experience with UMCOR? Consider inviting him or her to speak at your church during the week leading up to UMCOR Sunday.
Below are links to resources to share with your congregation about the importance of UMCOR Sunday and to encourage them to give generously on March 31.
