SERVE OUR WORLD
United Methodist Committee on Relief
UMCOR is the humanitarian and disaster response team of the United Methodist Church. They continue to be present long after the disaster or conflict has faded from the headlines. One easy way to help out this organization is by collecting flood buckets, which are five-gallon buckets filled with materials that are necessary to clean up after major flooding. There are also several opportunities for mission work through the group. To read more about these opportunities or to make a tax-deductible monetary donation, click here.
United Methodist Volunteers In Mission
UMVIM is a grassroots movement designed to provide an official channel where Christians, both lay and clergy, may offer their skills and talents for Christian service at home and around the world on short term assignments at their own expense.
Their work includes construction and renewing of mission facilities, teaching, witnessing, conducting medical clinics, conducting Bible study or Bible School for children, and serving in disaster relief efforts around the world. For more information on the Upper NY Conference chapter, click here.
