logoOne Great Hour of Sharing is just weeks away on Sunday, March 10. Now is the time to order your church’s free resources for this offering (umcgiving.org) that supports the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) so that it may respond immediately and effectively to emergencies around the world. When one gives to One Great Hour of Sharing, one helps to build the strong foundation on which all other UMCOR ministries are built. Because One Great Hour of Sharing covers UMCOR’s administrative costs, 100 percent of gifts designated for specific projects is used for those programs. During the spring of 2011, UMCOR gave affected annual conferences immediate support because of your gifts to One Great Hour of Sharing. In less than two months, UMCOR disbursed about $250,000 in emergency grants to 15 United Methodist annual conferences across the United States, including Indiana. If your church cannot celebrate this offering March 10, you can observe this Special Sunday on any day of the year or donate directly online at umcor.org.
