Do you know about UMCOR? UMCOR stands for United Methodist Committee on Relief and will be recognized during the Sunday service on March 31.
When watching disaster unfold around the globe, many of us feel the call to help but are at a loss as to what we can actually do to help. UMCOR Sunday is the day for congregations around the globe to help.
UMCOR offers aid in Jesus’ name to those who suffer:
When tornadoes ripped through Oklahoma, we responded.
When children in Zimbabwe lost parents to AIDS, we responded.
When a massive tsunami devastated lives in Japan, we responded.
And when the next crisis occurs, we will be prepared to respond.
Our generosity as a church on UMCOR Sunday covers the operating budget of UMCOR. This allows them to funnel 100% of other donations received throughout the year directly to relief efforts.
