A gift to One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) enables the church to share God’s love with our neighbors-in-need around the world by providing relief to those affected by natural disasters, providing food to the hungry, and helping to empower the poor and oppressed. Most Presbyterian congregations receive the offering throughout Lent or Palm/Passion Sunday or Easter Sunday. When you receive the offering this year, remember the Ohio River, and how it floods, and that PDA is willing to send grants to Presbyteries to support congregations along the Ohio River who are impacted by flooding. Giving to OGHS supports the mission of the PC(USA) by supporting Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, the Presbyterian Hunger Program, and the Self-Development of People. Your OGHS gift is financial support to Presbyterians in mission throughout our country and the world. Thank you for being generous!
