One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS)

One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) is the Lenten Offering of the United Church of Christ. OGHS provides clean water, food, education, health care, small business microcredit, emergency relief and advocacy/resettlement for refugees and displaced persons. Also, this offering supports domestic and international disaster preparedness and response.

Most congregations receive this offering on the fourth Sunday of Lent. In 2016, the suggested offering date for OGHS is March 6. Resources should arrive at your church in January to make promoting the offering easy. Materials include worship resources and the OGHS video that can be shared with Sunday School groups or during Worship Service.

Sharing brings joy: To us. To others. To God!
