American Baptist Churches of Pennsylvania and Delaware

One Great Hour Of Sharing Resources 2018


One Great Hour of Sharing (“OGHS”) is one of four annual offerings received by American Baptist churches.  OGHS makes the love of Christ real for individuals and communities around the world who suffer the effects of disaster, conflict, poverty or severe economic hardship, and for those who find themselves refugees or displaced within their home country.

This year's theme, "More Than We Can Imagine," is based on the words of the Apostle Paul: “…by the power at work within us,” God is able to “accomplish abundantly more than we can ask or imagine” (Ephesians 3:20).

2017 was a year of many natural disasters — extraordinary hurricanes, fires, mudslides, etc. Many man-made disasters — think Syria, Iraq, Ukraine, Nigeria and South Sudan — continue unresolved, claiming new victims each day. Your gifts to One Great Hour of Sharing brought relief in many of these situations!

In preparation for this year's OGHS Offering, a number of excellent resources are available, including:  

  • Planning and Resource Guide
  • Two OGHS Videos
  • One Great Hour of Sharing Poster (available in English and Spanish) 
  • Printed Bulletin Insert
  • Offering Envelopes (available in English and Spanish)
  • Coin Boxes
