This year, you are encouraged to give to the district Christmas offering, which will go to support UMCOR (the United Methodist Committee on Relief). UMCOR works locally and around the world to provide funding and other resources when disaster strikes.
As many of us know from personal experience, UMCOR has been a major presence in North Carolina when disasters have affected our homes, our churches and our Conference. We are grateful for the opportunity to give back during this season.
On the Advent 2020 website, you can give securely online and find resources to use in your local church. You can also access this year’s Advent devotional from the Conference Board of Church and Society, titled “Shalom: Advent Evening Prayer.”
