Special Offering: One Great Hour of Sharing March 13, 2011

For over 60 years through One Great Hour of Sharing offerings, the Church of Brethren has provided comfort and hope, companionship and support, and blessings and joy to those in need in our world.  Offerings from One Great Hour of Sharing have allowed Brethren workers to plan and implement long term relief efforts in areas affected by natural disasters and civil unrest and war.

This offering allows for Brethren workers and fellow Christians to provide educational support, household supply kits, and other aid to those in need. One Great Hour of Sharing gives us the opportunity to offer our financial best, and to experience great joy while helping people throughout the world. God spoke through Isaiah,

Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of injustice… Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and bring the homeless poor into your house, when you see the naked, to cover them, and not to hide yourself from your own kin? (Isaiah 58:6-7).

God has called us to give freely to those in need. Please consider participating in this special offering to be held at Green Tree on March 13, 2011. Special offering envelopes will be made available in the church bulletins on March 6, 2011. Extra envelopes will be located in the church foyer.
