February Mission 2015


Mission Offering   United Methodist Committee On Relief  (UMCOR)
The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is the global humanitarian aid organization of the United Methodist Church.  UMCOR is working in more than 80 countries worldwide, including the U.S.

Our mission, grounded in the teachings of Jesus, is to alleviate human suffering–whether caused by war, conflict, or natural disaster–with open hearts and minds to all people.  UMCOR partners with local organizations and survivors to rebuild their livelihoods, health and homes.  In times of acute crisis we mobilize emergency supplies, fresh water, and temporary shelter to stricken areas, and then stay as long as it takes to implement long-term recovery.  Our workers are known all over the globe for their compassion, leadership, expertise, and guidance in recovery efforts.

UMCOR works through programs that address hunger, poverty, sustainable agriculture, international and domestic emergencies, refugee and immigrant concerns, global health issues and transitional development.  Please give generously by placing money in the mission offering envelopes (in the pews) and then placing it in the offering plate, or give money when the mission buckets are passed.
