Community UMC will join other United Methodist Church congregations in celebration of One Great Hour of Sharing on March 5th and 6th. Through One Great Hour of Sharing offerings, United Methodist congregations fund the operations cost of the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), allowing the organization to utilize 100% of specified contributions for the designated projects.
UMCOR is the denominationâ€™s designated disaster-relief agency, providing humanitarian relief in response to conflict and natural disasters, as well as emergency preparedness training. UMCOR is also involved in global development work, such as health, water and sanitation, and food security. UMCOR works in the United States and in more than 80 other countries to assist people regardless of race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation.
