Your Impact

YOU make a difference

As followers of Jesus Christ, we are called to respond with extravagant grace. Through our gifts to UMCOR, we are able to make a difference in the lives of communities and individuals whose lives have been upset by storms, wars, fires, displacement and climate change.

The UMCOR Sunday special offering allows us to keep the promise that 100% of any gift to a specific UMCOR project will go toward that project, not administrative costs.
