One Great Hour of Sharing March 15th

One Great Hour of Sharing is the Lenten Offering of the United Church of Christ. Some of the ways our gifts bring joy to others focus on the tangible results of our sharing:

•A family displaced by natural disaster or political unrest is grateful to receive food, shelter, and the comfort .

•Anyone who had to walk miles to get water for their family, smiles as a well is dug in their community, bringing clean water within reach

•A farmer whose harvest succumbed to the storms, is thankful when offered food, water, and new seed, helping her to make it through to the next harvest

This year, as you make your offering to One Great Hour of Sharing, remember the joy your gifts offer others, is hope.
