One Great Hour of Sharing Offering Will Be Received on Palm Sunday

Please Give Generously on March 24


On Palm Sunday, March 24, 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 50 giving churches.

One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) involves us in disaster, refugee/immigration, and development ministries throughout the world. When a disaster strikes or people are displaced or made refugees by violence or extreme poverty, through our offering, we are part of the immediate response and of the long-term recovery.

Through OGHS we engage in holistic development programs including health care, education, agriculture, food sustainability, micro-financing and women’s empowerment. Because the UCC relates in mutual partnership to churches and organizations through Global Ministries and worldwide response & recovery networks, our contributions to One Great Hour of Sharing put us in the right place at the right time for the relief, accompaniment, and recovery of the most vulnerable. We meet immediate needs and you address the underlying causes that create those needs in the first place.

This year we mark the 75th anniversary of OGHS. You can watch videos about the work that OGHS makes possible by clicking here:


Let us join in this great tradition and give generously.
