One Great Hour of Sharing (2019)

On Palm Sunday, April 14, we will take up a special offering “One Great Hour of Sharing.”


Sharing God’s Love with Our Neighbors-In-Need

Open Doors, Open Hearts

All around the world we see people whose homes and even loved ones have been washed away by hurricanes and floods, people trapped in systems of injustice and oppression, and people who will go to bed tonight hungry or without a roof over their heads.

One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) lets us come together to open our doors — as well as our hearts — to share the love of Christ through our ministries of justice, compassion, and joy.

OGHS is the single, largest way that Presbyterians join together to share God’s love with our neighbors-in-need around the world. Each gift helps to improve the lives of people in challenging situations through three impactful programs:

Presbyterian Disaster Assistance  
Restorers of Streets to Live In
Works alongside communities as they recover and find hope after the devastation of natural or human-caused disasters

Presbyterian Hunger Program  
Share your Bread with the Hungry
Takes action to alleviate hunger and the systemic causes of poverty so all may be fed

Self-Development of People 
Loose the Bonds of Injustice
Invests in communities responding to their experiences of racism, oppression, poverty and injustice and educates Presbyterians about the impact of these societal ills

One Great Hour of Sharing lets us come together to open our doors — as well as our hearts — to share the love of Christ through our ministries of justice, compassion, and joy.
