The March special offering is for One Great Hour of Sharing/Week of Compassion. 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/Week of Compassion 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. The woman who has been a victim of war, attempting on her own to raise her family without any access to long-term food security, education, or health care, is now self-sufficient because of assistance provided through this special offering. Families across North America, still struggling to survive after a devastating storm took everything in its path, are accompanied for the long haul, thanks to funds from One Great Hour of Sharing/Week of Compassion.
Each time a gift is given, a connection is made. Every single offering builds another bridge and tears down another wall. Each donation, 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/Week of Compassion enables us to fulfill those needs, for they are our needs.
This offering will be officially received on March 9, and, as with all our special offerings, you can give at any time.
