DO YOU KNOW about UMCOR?
UMCOR stands for United Methodist Committee on Relief, and we’ve chosen March 31, 2019, as an opportunity to support this organization through a special offering in worship.
When we watch disasters 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 collectively give to help those who are suffering.
UMCOR offers aid in Jesus’ name to those who are suffering. For instance:
● When tornadoes ripped through Oklahoma, UMCOR responded.
● When children in Zimbabwe lost parents to AIDS, UMCOR responded.
● When a massive tsunami devastated lives in Japan, UMCOR responded.
And when the next crisis occurs, UMCOR will be prepared to respond.
On this Special Sunday on March 31, 2019, our generosity as a church covers the operating budget of UMCOR. This allows them to funnel 100% of other donations received throughout the year directly to relief efforts. UMCOR Sunday is where we come together to help.
Look for the special insert and envelope in your bulletin on Sunday, March 31, 2019.
