As the nation watches Hurricane Michael closely, we invite prayer and continued gifts to One Great Hour of Sharing to support those in need.
Rev. James Harrison, executive minister of the American Baptist Churches of the South, said that the region is prayerfully watching to see how the latest hurricane develops. He has spoken to some Florida pastors who are bracing for the storm. Harrison added, “Many are still cleaning and drying out from Florence.”
“Please continue to pray for those in harm’s way as well as those who have been so devastated by natural disasters in recent years including our brothers and sisters in Puerto Rico,” said Jeff Woods, acting general secretary of American Baptist Churches USA.
Donations to One Great Hour of Sharing can be made via your church; by visiting www.abc-usa.org and clicking “Give Online” at the top right of the page; or check designated to “One Great Hour of Sharing” and mailed to ABCUSA, PO Box 851, Valley Forge, PA 19482-0851.
One hundred percent of donations go to relief efforts; no dollars are retained for administrative costs. To ensure that your church receives credit for your gift, write the church name on your check or, if giving online, in the “comment” box.

The committee facilitates American Baptist emergency relief, disaster rehabilitation, refugee work and development assistance by establishing policy guidelines and overseeing distribution of the annual One Great Hour of Sharing offering received by churches.
