One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) funds enable the United Church of Christ (UCC) to respond quickly to disasters and other urgent and unexpected needs as they arise. In addition to the OGHS annual offering funds, the UCC also receives designated gifts for specific disasters and crisis situations that further enhance our capacity to respond. More than $1.3 million in grants were made from OGHS dollars and designated disaster and refugee response accounts during 2012.
The 2013 OGHS collection will be received during worship on Sunday, March 10. Your gift of any amount is appreciated. Collection envelopes will be in the Bulletin, and/or checks may be made out to CCMV noting “OGHS” in the memo section.
