One Great Hour of Sharing – April 15

One Great Hour of Sharing – April 15

On  April  15,  the  Mission  Committee  will  be  collecting  envelopes  sent  to   church  members  for  One  Great  Hour  of  Sharing,  which  supports  Church   World  Service.

Since  1949,  Presbyterians  have  joined  with  millions  of  other  Christians   through One Great Hour of Sharing to share God’s love with people  experiencing  need.  Our  gifts  support  ministries  of  disaster  response,     refugee  assistance  and  resettlement,  and  community  development  that   help  people  find  safe  refuge,  start  new  lives  and  work  together  to   strengthen  their  families  and  communities.    Recognizing  that  the  hope   we  have  in  Christ  is  lived  out  in  our  hope  for  one  another,  we  respond   with  gifts  that  help  our  sisters  and  brothers  around  the  world  find  the   hope  for  a  brighter  future.

Contributions  to  One  Great  Hour  of  Sharing  make  a  difference  in  the   lives  of  people.  Church  World  Service,  a  division  of  the  National   Council  of  Churches,  with  overseas  partner  churches  and  church   councils  are  often  the  first  on  the  scene  following  a  disaster  of  natural     or  human  origin.  Local  church  leaders  identify  the  needs  of  their  people.   Priorities  are  set  to  bring  long-­term  solutions  that  will  improve  the     quality  of  life  for  individuals  and  communities  around  the  world.  One   Great  Hour  of  Sharing,  nearly  50  years  old,  continues  to  respond  to   needs  equally  critical  as  when  it  was  first  created.
