United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) Sunday (formerly One Great Hour of Sharing) is March 31, 2019.
 
For more than 50 years, congregations have taken part in UMCOR Sunday, laying the foundation for a ministry of relief and hope. Donations through this offering cover our cost of doing business. This allows 100% of all other giving to be used on the projects our donors specify, rather than in administrative or fundraising costs.
UMCOR does not receive United Methodist World Service or apportionment funds, so without your offerings, UMCOR would not exist.

Easter Hydrangeas
We will be decorating our church again this year with hydrangeas on Easter Sunday.  If you would like to purchase one ($20 each) of these beautiful  flowers in honor of, or in memory of someone, please fill out the signup sheet in the narthex or Worship Center.
Place the $20 cash or check in the envelop provide and make the check out to Cokes Chapel UMW (United Methodist Women) and place it in the collection plate. The deadline for ordering hydrangeas is March 31st.
