This resource is part of the 4-week churchwide Sunday school study for adults, youth, and children that follows the 2014 theme of One Great Hour of Sharing—Be Hope. By supporting One Great Hour of Sharing and the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), we share the goodness of life with those who hurt, both in the U.S. and around the globe.

Included leader helps make Being Hope useful for individual or group study. Each session of this study explores the biblical and Wesleyan foundations for our work as a denomination in the areas of disaster relief, global health, and global development, as well as the role we play in our churches’ mission efforts close to home. This resource will equip participants to become catalysts of change for their communities and involve younger generations in the important work The United Methodist Church is doing to alleviate suffering in 81 countries around the world.

Strengthen your church’s missional heart and inspire your church’s partnership with UMCOR through One Great Hour of Sharing.
