One Great Hour of Sharing

one-great-hour-of-sharingDisaster survivors who have lost everything and are left wondering what’s next . . . volunteers from the pews who travel far to work in difficult conditions helping others . . . and immigrant small farmers who simply need an opportunity to pull themselves up out of poverty. All are people we are helping each time we give to the One Great Hour of Sharing. 

Since 1949 Presbyterians have joined with millions of other Christians through One Great Hour of Sharing to share God’s love with our neighbors-in-need around the world. Your generous gifts to this Special Offering help provide relief those affected by natural disasters, provide food to the hungry, and assist in helping to empower the poor and oppressed. 

As we reflect upon the blessings we have experienced, let us also commit to living openhanded lives by sharing these blessings with others. As we share through gifts to the One Great Hour of Sharing, we offer an outward sign of thanksgiving for the presence of Christ in our lives while also bringing joy to God and to our sisters and brothers across the world.  This is one of two special offerings designated by the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) that is offered to members of our congregation and will be received at all services on Sunday, April 13.  Look for offering envelopes in the Sunday bulletin that week. 

As we share together this year, we sincerely thank you, on behalf of all the lives touched by your generosity, for your continued investment in the church’s effort to meet the needs of the most vulnerable members of God’s family.
