One Great Hour of Sharing
Together, we reach children, families and communities who have experienced devastation in the wake of disaster.
One Great Hour of Sharing calls United Methodists to share the goodness of life with those who hurt. The offering provides administrative support for the UMCOR as it responds to disaster survivors and people in need around the world.
Your gift enables UMCOR to respond to disasters and remain on the scene long after others have left to support community efforts that enrich the lives of God's children around the world.
Because you give, the United Methodist Church's compassionate response to human suffering continues today:
*When tornadoes ripped through Oklahoma, we responded
*When children in Zimbabwe lost parents to AIDS, we responded
*When a massive tsunami devastated lives in Japan, we responded
And when the next mass crisis occurs, we will be prepared to respond.
As responders around the globe scramble to help survivors of disaster, the United Methodist Committee on Relief, UMCOR, is prepared to act. Your donation to One Great Hour of Sharing enables UMCOR to serve children, families and communities when disaster strikes.
Since 1940, when UMCOR's forerunner was established to meet the needs of those suffering overseas at the onset of World War II, we've continued to response to those in desperate need throughout more than eighty countries around the world. The response of UMCOR isn't something "they" do, it's something "we" do.
Your generous giving to One Great Hour of Sharing is what allows UMCOR to act as the arms and legs of Christ's church, moving toward the most vulnerable in their darkest days. Convinced that all people have God-given worth and dignity - without regard to race, religion or gender - together we are assisting those impacted by crisis or chronic need.
