UMCOR – Special Offering on Sunday, March 11

Sunday, March 11 during worship

TOGETHER, WE REACH CHILDREN, FAMILIES AND COMMUNITIES WHO HAVE EXPERIENCED DEVASTATION IN THE WAKE OF DISASTER.

When disaster strikes around the globe – Haiti’s 2010 earthquake or all the natural disasters that happened last year – so many watching the drama unfold on our living room televisions feel entirely helpless. How could any one person make a difference in the wake of such widespread devastation? As responders around the globe scramble to help survivors, the United Methodist Committee on Relief, UMCOR, is prepared to act.

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 respond to those in desperate need—today throughout more than eighty countries around the world.  March’s special offering will benefit UMCOR and will be collected during Sunday Morning Worship on March 11 or can be sent to the church office at any time.
