Received on Palm Sunday--April 10

ONE GREAT HOUR OF SHARING: On Palm Sunday, April 10, we will dedicate our One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) offering. This offering has long been an important part of the life of our congregation. For many years now, we have been on the list of Top 100 giving churches.

This year’s theme, “Love Remains,” comes from Paul’s well-known words: “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” (1 Cor. 13:13) In a world where communities are being displaced by the catastrophes of war, famine, and natural disaster, our congregation joins with many others in standing in faith, hope, and love with those who seek to move beyond the trauma of displacement toward the promise of healing and peace. Your generous gift will support the relief work of not only the UCC but also many other denominations united in caring for refugees, in providing medical care, and in disaster recovery efforts.

Let us join in this great tradition and give generously, not because we have to, but because we can.
