The One Great Hour of Sharing offering is essential to UMCOR: gifts to this offering underwrite UMCOR's "costs of doing business." That helps us keep our promise that 100 percent of every other gift you make to a specific UMCOR project can be spent on that project - not on home office costs and assisting UMCOR programs that have not been fully funded through designated Advance gifts.

Free offering envelopes and DVD's are available for the One Great Hour of Sharing offering by calling toll-free 888-346-3862, by fax at 615-742-5499 or online at www.umcgiving.org/ss. Other resources include bulletin inserts, litany of hope, songs and Scripture which can be downloaded from  http://new.gbgm-umc.org/umcor/give/oghs/. - UMNS
