UMCOR 75th Anniversary

In 2015, the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is celebrating 75 years of being with those in crisis around the world. 

Donations to One Great Hour of Sharing make possible 100 percent of gifts to projects go to those projects.



Help ensure another 75 years with the resources below, with more to be added as March 15 approaches. 

Pastor's Toolkit

To help spread the word about this important date, we created a Pastor's Toolkit for pastors and church leaders. Church members: Please pass this information along to your church leaders.
