One Great Hour of Sharing is an ecumenical Christian offering that makes the love of Christ real for individuals and communities around the world who suffer the effects of disaster, conflict, or severe economic hardship, and for those who serve them through gifts of money and time. Today, projects are underway in more than 100 countries. One Great Hour of Sharing funds make possible disaster relief, refugee assistance, development aid and more. One Great Hour of Sharing Projects are intended to empower, provide water, supply food, and give relief from disasters. A gift to One Great Hour of Sharing enables the church to share God’s love with our neighbors-in-need around the world by providing relief to those affected by natural disasters, provide food to the hungry, and helping to empower the poor and oppressed. At First Presbyterian Church of Gardner, we will be receiving the One Great Hour of Sharing Offering throughout Lent and presenting our gifts in worship on Easter Sunday.
