One Great Hour of Sharing 2017

One Great Hour of Sharing

"Just as you did it to one of the least of these... you did it to me."
(Matthew 25:40)

Suggested offering date: March 19, 2017 -- Give now

One Great Hour of Sharing reaches those near and far, sometimes changing the life of someone in distress in your own community, while at other times impacting the lives of those we may never meet but who are in need of our compassion. God provides the resources so that we can give back. It’s not the size of the gift that matters; it’s that we give of what we have. We’re simply giving back to God what is already God’s—and that means everyone has a gift to bring!

Gifts given through this special offering empower ministries like the Church of the Brethren’s Global Mission and Service, Congregational Life Ministries, Brethren Disaster Ministries, Brethren Volunteer Service, workcamps, the Global Food Initiative, and many others.

Worship resources for this year’s offering are listed below, and bulletin inserts, giving envelopes, and posters, will be mailed to Church of the Brethren congregations by January 11. If you would like to adjust your church's standing order, please e-mail or call Matt DeBall at 847-429-4378.
