Whenever and wherever disaster strikes, the United Methodist Committee on Relief is ready. As the church’s humanitarian relief and development arm, UMCOR works with annual conferences, training volunteers from local congregations to be disaster responders, and provides grants for direct support, goods or services to survivors.

UMCOR counts on United Methodist financial support through Advance designated gifts and through a special offering on UMCOR Sunday (formerly One Great Hour of Sharing) during the fourth Sunday in Lent

“Because of the trust that the people of The United Methodist Church have in us, we are positioned to help address needs, both large and small,” said Cathy Earl, UMCOR director of disaster response and U.S. partner relations. “UMCOR partners with annual conferences (in disaster areas), and they stretch those dollars to the breaking point. They do all they can to make every dollar turn into two, three, four.”

Your gifts on UMCOR Sunday show your faith, share Christ’s love and make a huge difference. Thank you!
