    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 26thPlease prayerfully consider how you can be the hands and heart of Jesus for our sisters and brothers through this offering.
