Stewardship

What does stewardship mean at Unity? The giving of our time, talent and financial resources to care for and preserve our church and its ministries. Throughout the month of April, we will focus on educating our congregation of the opportunities to participate in the life of Unity.

One Great Hour of Sharing

ON EASTER SUNDAY, Unity will join other Presbyterians and other denominations to receive the "One Great Hour of Sharing" offering. This offering began following World War II when Protestant churches in the United States made appeals for the relief and reconstruction of devastated areas, primarily in Europe and Asia.

In 1949, major networks broadcast a show, called "One Great Hour," on Saturday, March 26th at 10 p.m. EST. The broadcast, featuring President Truman and popular musicians and actors of the time, closed with the request to make a sacrificial contribution at their own place of worship the next morning.  While there is no record of funds raised that day, it is estimated that over 75,000 churches participated.

Over time, many aspects of the offering and its participants have changed, but the purpose remains the same:  to collect special gifts for those in need.  In recent years, the PCUSA has collected over $6 million per year and divided the funds between Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, Presbyterian Hunger Program, and Self-Development of People.  Please join the "One Great Hour of Sharing."
