Current Emphasis

The emphasis for the month of March is One Great Hour of Sharing

One Great Hour of Sharing provides blankets, food, clean water, shelter and medical care for communities impacted by disaster.  

For almost seven decades now, nine denominations in the U.S., united as one, have together been connecting people through the One Great Hour of Sharing offering. Sisters and brothers living in poverty who would have been otherwise overlooked, or outright forgotten, have been empowered by our gifts to the offering.


Each donation to One Great Hour of Sharing, no matter how large or small, reveals our unity, that in Christ Jesus we are one family. When one of us—anywhere on earth—hurts, we all hurt. As long as there is need, we are all in need. One Great Hour of Sharing enables us to fulfill those needs, for they are our needs.
