Each year the One Great Hour of Sharing offering enables the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) to bring hope to countlessÂ survivors of both natural and people-made diasters.Â The 2007 One Great Hour of Sharing offering is scheduled for March 18.Â However, you may receive the offering when it is best for your congregation.Â Offering envelopes will be sent to you free from United Methodist Communications. This video shows some of the ways that Missouri has benefited from this offering.Â It includes video clips of diaster response in Missouri and elswhere.Â It also encludes an appeal from Wendy Whitside, who was once a staff member for the Office of Creative Ministries and now heads up communications forÂ the United MethodistÂ General Board of Global Ministries, head quartered in New York.Â The video isÂ 2 minutes and 40 seconds long.Â You may download this video and show it to your Outreach Committee or even show it on Sunday morning if your church has the capability to do so.Â A DVD quality version may ordered from the Office of Creative MinistriesÂ for $3 which includes shipping and handling.
