Web site of One Great Hour of Sharing, an offering that makes the love of
Christ real for individuals and communities around the world who suffer the
effects of disaster, conflict, or severe economic hardship, and for those who
serve them through gifts of money and time. Today, projects are underway in
more than 100 countries, including the United States and Canada. The One
Great Hour of Sharing committee officially comprises eight Christian
denominations: American Baptist Churches USA, African Methodist Episcopal
Zion Church, Church of the Brethren, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ),
Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), United Church
of Christ, and Church World Service. While specific allocations differ in
each denomination, all use their One Great Hour of Sharing funds to make
possible disaster relief, refugee assistance, development aid and more.
