Glossary: One Great Hour of Sharing

One Great Hour of Sharing is now UMCOR Sunday. 

The 2016 General Conference approved the name change of the One Great Hour of Sharing special Sunday to UMCOR Sunday. UMCOR Sunday is one of six churchwide Special Sundays with offerings of The United Methodist Church. UMCOR Sunday calls United Methodists to share the goodness of life with those who hurt.

Your gifts to UMCOR Sunday lay the foundation for the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) to share God’s love with communities everywhere. The special offering underwrites UMCOR’s “costs of doing business.” This helps UMCOR to keep the promise that 100 percent of any gift to a specific UMCOR project will go toward that project, not administrative costs.
