March Special Offering: One Great Hour of Sharing

Outreach News: We have received $2,014.00 to date for The Gathering Place, our February special offering. This offering will help them fund the overnight warming center services this winter. Thank you for your generosity! 

Our special offering in March is One Great Hour of Sharing. One Great Hour of Sharing® is one of four special mission offerings of the United Church of Christ. This Lenten Offering supports the disaster, refugee, and development ministries of the United Church of Christ within Wider Church Ministries.

OGHS carries God’s message of love and hope to people in crisis. OGHS partners with local churches, conferences, international partners, and organizations to provide sources of clean water, food, education, health care, advocacy, resettlement for refugees and displaced persons, emergency relief and rehabilitation as well as disaster preparedness and response.

By giving to OGHS, you know that when a disaster strikes or people are displaced or made refugees by violence or extreme poverty, you are part of the immediate response and of the long-term recovery. Visit the One Great Hour of Sharing Facebook page or to learn more.

Our gifts to OGHS will be collected throughout the month of March. To donate online to this month’s Special Offering, visit our E-Giving page and select “March Special Offering: One Great Hour of Sharing” from the Fund drop-down menu. To donate by check, be sure to specify “OGHS” in the memo line.
