One Great Hour of Sharing

We receive the One Great Hour of Sharing during Lent.  The offering goes to help mission outreach of our Presbyterian Church (USA).  It is good to remember that some of the funds go to Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, so that when storms like Sandy ravage the USA, Presbyterian Disaster Relief workers can be on the spot immediately with tangible help from our giving.  We also benefit the Self Development of People program of the PC(USA) by One Great Hour of Sharing Giving.  For one example of how your OGHS offering makes a difference LOCALLY, see this story of how the Self-Development of People committee has awarded grants arising from that special offering to ten projects nationwide, including local recipient the Brevard Drop-in Center, a place where folks with mental health challenges help each other gain employment skills in a peer-to-peer setting:
