First to arrive and last to leave … that is what is said of the United Methodist Committee on Relief.
What keeps UMCOR going for the “long haul” is the One Great Hour of Sharing celebrated on March 6. It is one of the six church-wide Special Sundays with offerings of The United Methodist Church.
OGHS enables UMCOR to live out its mission to alleviate human suffering and respond to natural or human-caused disasters. And, it’s your gifts that make it possible for UMCOR to use 100% of all other contributions on the projects our donors specify, instead of on administrative or fundraising costs.
UMCOR does not receive United Methodist World Service or apportionment funds, so without your offerings, UMCOR would not exist. Use these available resources and empower your congregation to give on March 6.
Download and share an OGHS church bulletin, poster, and a Pastor and Leader’s Kit. This kit includes plenty of new social media banners for Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter networks, as well as website banners and wallpapers for five smartphone platforms. Also view the Annual Conference Communicator Pastor and Leaders Kit for similar resources.
