One Great Hour Of Sharing 2023



So let's not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good.
At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don't give up…

— Galatians 6:9 —

This scripture held special meaning for us in the past year. War in Ukraine persists, communities from Kentucky to Puerto Rico are in the throes of long-term recoveryfrom tornadoes, floods, and hurricanes, while wildfires continue to imperil western U.S. states. And those are just a few of the life-changing hardships people faced in 2022. In the midst of it all, American Baptists have responded through One Great Hour of Sharing, and we are seeing the harvest indeed.

Together, we provide immediate relief and long-term recovery support after disasters; equip churches and leaders in disaster preparedness measures; offer assistance to displaced people; and support global development projects that empower communities around the world to thrive. Our partners have persisted in this life-saving work despite the challenges of the pandemic and in the face of other disasters and humanitarian crises that continue to escalate in frequency and severity.

We are called to witness to this gospel truth: despite evidence to the contrary, even in the most difficult of circumstances, love remains. When you give to One Great Hour of Sharing you put love into action. Your giving shares faith, hope, and love all around the world. But the greatest of these is love.
