About Us

The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to alleviating human suffering around the globe. UMCOR’s work reaches people in more than 80 countries, including the United States.  We provide humanitarian relief when war, conflict, or natural disaster disrupt life to such an extent that communities are unable to recover on their own.

UMCOR is a ministry of The United Methodist Church, and our goal is to assist the most vulnerable persons affected by crisis or chronic need without regard to their race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. We believe all people have God-given worth and dignity.

While UMCOR cooperates with other aid organizations to extend our reach, our most important partners are the people we serve. We are confident that successful solutions to emergency or chronic conditions begin with the affected population. UMCOR provides these survivors not only temporary relief but long-term education, training, and support.

UMCOR spends 100 percent of designated donations on the projects our donors specify. When UMCOR donors give their time, money, and supplies, they join UMCOR as the hands and feet of Christ.

                          U.M.W.

The United Methodist Women is an organization of women that meet and raise money for the mission work of the United Methodist Church.  We have great fellowship and study times.  The money raised is divided into thirds.  Two thirds of this money is given to the United Methodist Church to help fund our national and world mission projects.  These projects include schools, hospitals and any projects to help people, especially women, children and youth, be self-sufficient.


              Bereavement Meals

Frances Montgomery coordinates this service.  The church provides the meat and church members are called and asked to bring a certain food.  We have served full meals, light meals, salad luncheons and even a couple of early morning snacks.

This is a small service we provide for our members and their families.  Anyone is welcome to help by calling Frances at 432-943-2516 or 432-943-2113.  You may also email her at fumc_monahans@yahoo.com or
