ONE GREAT HOUR OF SHARING
74 years ago, in 1949, as Europe was rebuilding from the devastations of WWII; One Great Hour of Sharing, began. OGHS, inspired by NATO and the ongoing US led, “Marshall Plan,” was a platform for US Protestant Churches to combine their efforts in raising significant resources to help those in desperate need rebuilding their lives throughout Europe.
In 2023, 9 major Protestant faith families including our own United Church of Christ, unite every 4th Sunday in Lent to support OGHS with our second-mile gifts. OGHS is our collective “stocking up” for the inevitable natural disasters here at home as well as worldwide.
Please use the enclosed OGHS offering envelope for your significant second-mile gifts,
mailing them to the church office. Thank you!
