Sunday is UMCOR Sunday (formerly known as "One Great Hour of Sharing"). This Special Sunday supports the overhead costs for the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR). When there is a disaster, UMCOR is able to respond immediately through its network of trained disaster response teams and local partners.
We hope your worship services on March 31 will have a clear message about the important impact that UMCOR makes in communities such as Paradise, California that must rebuild after a disaster. Long after the media has stopped covering a disaster, UMCOR continues to work with those affected on behalf of all United Methodists.
To encourage people to give generously on UMCOR Sunday, please send a reminder email to the congregation. The General Board of Global Ministries (GBGM) has developed some samples that you can adapt.
Incorporate worship resources into the March 31 services. For instance:
