Sunday Feb 22th - One Great Hour of Sharing
In 2015, the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is celebrating 75 years of being with those in crisis around the world. For more than 50 years, United Methodist congregations have been taking part in a special One Great Hour of Sharing offering, laying the foundation for UMCOR’s ministry of relief and hope. Donations UMCOR receives through this offering, along with other undesignated gifts made throughout the year, cover our costs of doing business. Gifts like yours make it possible for UMCOR to use 100% of all other contributions on the projects our donors specify, instead of on administrative or fundraising costs. UMCOR does not receive United Methodist World Service or apportionment funds, so without your offerings, UMCOR would not exist. Because we keep operating costs under 10% of our total budget, undesignated gifts may actually exceed UMCOR’s administrative needs. When that happens, your support is channeled to under-funded programs, where they’re most needed. They also may be used to allow UMCOR to respond to disasters immediately after an event and before funds can be raised.
Saturday, Feb 28th 1-3pm - "Love in Our Lives"
On February 28th we welcome Becky Gorman to lead us as we examine and reflect on the relationships and spirituality in our lives: our relationship to ourselves, to spiritual sources, the community, and to others in our midst. Ms. Gorman is a Physician Assistant, Coach and Consultant who works with teams and individuals in educational institutions, medical organizations and corporations. Over the last 29 years Becky’s work has focused on holistic health & wellbeing, with a special emphasis on healthy authentic relationships. This program is sponsored by the Mission and Outreach Committee. A free will offering is requested for this event. Suggested donation is $20.00. Contact person: Lennis Bentrud 612 782 0377
