One Great Hour of Sharing

On Sunday, March 30, Hancock will take the Lenten offering for One Great Hour of Sharing® (OGHS). OGHS is the Lenten Offering of the United Church of Christ that supports disaster, refugee, and development, often referred to as missions. An envelope for your gift will be enclosed in the bulletins for Sunday, March 23 and 30th. Envelopes are also available in the narthex. Please give generously to this important cause.

“For almost seven decades now, nine denominations in the U.S., united as one, have together been connecting people through this offering. Sisters and brothers living in poverty, the woman who has been a victim of war, families across North America, still struggling to survive after a devastating storm, are accompanied for the long haul, thanks to funds from One Great Hour of Sharing.

Each time a gift is given, a connection is made. Each donation to One Great Hour of Sharing, no matter how large or small, reveals our unity, that in Christ Jesus we are one family. When one of us—anywhere on earth—hurts, we all hurt. As long as there is need, we are all in need. One Great Hour of Sharing enables us to fulfill those needs, for they are our needs.”
