Please consider contributing online to this offering as we have suspended worship services because of the Coronavirus pandemic until further notice. If you check the box “I want to designate this for a specific fund” it will offer you the opportunity to give to this special offering.
Our parent denomination, the United Church of Christ, collects four special offerings each year. One Great Hour of Sharing responds to disaster relief worldwide and last year supported relief after Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas; continues to assist with hurricane recovery in Florida and Puerto Rico; provided relief after an earthquake in Indonesia and Typhoon Hagibis in Japan; is building earthquake resistant homes in Nepal; and is assisting in poverty relief for Honduras. OGHS also helped people who were displaced from their homes due to conflict and violence, while providing sustainable solutions in places lacking adequate education, agriculture or health, internationally.
10% of our offering this Sunday will be given to the One Great Hour of Sharing collection.
