One Great Hour of Sharing
It is easy to feel helpless in the face of so much need in our world. We hear daily of refugees desperately needing the most basic things: food, water, shelter; victims of natural disasters suddenly homeless; communities without clean water; children without access to education...the list goes on and on and on.
Through One Great Hour of Sharing, we carry God’s message of love and hope to people in crisis. Seven Christian denominations - American Baptist Church, African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Church of the Brethren, Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Presbyterian Church (USA), the United Church of Christ, and Church World Service work together to support the ministries of OGHS.
Your gift to OGHS supports international development initiatives, including annual support for missionaries. Currently there are 4 OGHS supported missionaries and 2 Global Mission Interns working in disaster relief, health care, education, sustainable agricultural development, and refugee support. The offering also funds disaster preparedness and response, and disaster related volunteer initiatives in the U.S.
Our OGHS offering will be received on March 26th. Please prayerfully consider how you can be the hands and heart of Jesus for our sisters and brothers through this offering.
On March 26th, Beth Singley will speak to us after church about the refugee resettlement work being done by Ascentria Care Alliance, the largest resettlement organization in New England. Beth is the Resource Developer for Services for New Americans and has been working closely with congregations who are currently helping refugees or are interested in learning more about offering this support. Please plan to stay for her presentation!
