One Great Hour of Sharing, as part of Our Churches Wider Mission, is the special mission offering of the United Church of Christ that carries God’s message of love and hope to people in crisis. The UCC works with international partners to provide sources of clean water, food, education and health care, small business micro-credit, advocacy and resettlement for refugees and displaced persons, and emergency relief and rehabilitation. OGHS also supports domestic and international ministries for disaster preparedness and response.
One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) special mission offering of the United Church of Christ involves you in disaster, refugee/immigration, and development ministries throughout the world. When a disaster strikes or people are displaced, you are part of the immediate response and of the long-term recovery.
On March 14, 2021, St. John’s United Church of Christ will be participating in One Great Hour of Sharing. This will be in the form of a special donation to be collected on that day.
Scripture Reference: Ephesians 3:20
Now to God be the glory, who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine.
