(Formerly One Great Hour of Sharing)
Sunday, March 31, 2019
The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is the not-for-profit humanitarian agency of The United Methodist Church. Since 1940 UMCOR’s mission — providing relief in disaster areas, aiding refugees and confronting the challenge of world hunger and poverty — has helped to heal the hurts of humanity in nearly 100 countries.
United Methodists assist UMCOR through gifts collected on UMCOR Sunday, which is observed on the fourth Sunday in Lent. This church wide Special Sunday calls United Methodists to share the goodness of life with those who hurt. Monies collected underwrite UMCOR’s “costs of doing business.” This helps UMCOR keep its promise that every gift to a specific UMCOR project will go toward that project, not for administrative costs.
DeBows UMC will participate in UMCOR Sunday on March 31, 2019. Special offering envelopes will be available in the pews to support this UMC ministry.
