One Great Hour of Sharing Is March 18

March 07, 2012

It's time to prepare for One Great Hour of Sharing, March 18 – one of six Special Sundays of The United Methodist Church, celebrated with a special offering.

One Great Hour of Sharing supports the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR). When you give to One Great Hour of Sharing, you underwrite UMCOR's "costs of doing business." This ensures that UMCOR is able to keep its promise that 100 percent of every donation made to a specific UMCOR project will be spent on that project – not on administrative costs.
 
Join United Methodists everywhere by participating in this special offering that supports UMCOR's vital work. UMCOR receives no apportionment or World Service funds of any kind. It is your gifts to One Great Hour of Sharing that provide the strong foundation on which all other UMCOR programs are built.
 
Because of your gifts, UMCOR is able to share God's steadfast love with communities everywhere. The agency's ability to respond – and to remain on the job until it is done – are in direct proportion to the generosity of United Methodists through this special offering.
