UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) Sunday
March 14, 2021 12:00am
March 14 is UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) Sunday, a day where our community has the opportunity to contribute to worldwide relief efforts for distressed peoples. UMCOR currently has relief teams responding to the devastation caused by hurricanes Sally, Laura, and Isaias in the U.S. This past year they have also awarded post-devastation recovery grants to suffering from the effects of 2020 storms, floods, and wildfires. Closer to home, response teams continue to aid areas of Iowa and Illinois suffering from last year’s high windstorm (derecho.)
Globally, UMCOR responded to hurricanes and tropical storms in Central America and the Philippines, as well as flooding in Nepal and the Congo. They supplied funds for needed humanitarian aid after the Beirut explosion and the Taal volcanic eruption in the Philippines.
Please consider contributing to the important work that UMCOR provides in continuing our Christian mission to the people of the world. You can contribute through garychurch.org/give or the Church Office.
