As Christians, we are called to embody Christ and be God’s light, moving toward the most vulnerable in their time of need. Supporting people through their hardest challenges is the purest reflection of Jesus’ charge to love our neighbors as ourselves. Through the ministry of The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR)—the humanitarian relief and development arm of The United Methodist Church—we are working together to offer relief and recovery to our neighbors around the world. Join us as we work alongside those in need to make a difference in communities and individuals.
By working with local organizations, churches in the community and United Methodist volunteers, UMCOR builds relationships and helps communities rebuild in the years following a disaster or crisis. UMCOR offers relief, response and long-term recovery grants when events overwhelm a community’s ability to recover on their own. UMCOR also provides technical support and training for partners to address emerging and ongoing issues related to disaster relief, recovery and long-term health and development.
UMCOR would be unable to do this work without your support. From training Conference Disaster Coordinators and Early Response Teams to keeping the office lights on, the UMCOR Sunday special offering equips the organization to embody Christ and be God’s light.
On March 10, United Methodists around the world celebrate UMCOR Sunday to recognize the impact we achieve together. We invite you to join in this ministry! Your donation on this Special Sunday cover UMCOR’s operation costs so that 100% of donations received in response to emergency appeals goes directly to communities in need.
The United Methodist Church’s special giving structure ensures your generosity blesses as many people as possible in sustainable, strategic ways. Even the smallest gift makes an impact!
