Remember to ‘Spring Forward’ Sunday Morning YOU Impact Lives! UMCOR Sunday, March10
United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), provides hope for communities and individuals whose lives have been upset by war, storms or other crises. This ministry is achieved exclusively through your generosity. Last year, your generosity (through November 2023) delivered $1.5 million for direct ministry to persons in need. As followers of Jesus Christ, we are called to respond with extravagant grace. Through our gifts to UMCOR, we are able to make a difference in the lives of communities and individuals whose lives have been upset by storms, wars, fires, displacement and climate change. The UMCOR Sunday special offering allows us to keep the promise that 100% of any gift to a specific UMCOR project will go toward that project, not administrative costs.
