One Great Hour of Sharing


One Great Hour of Sharing is our mission for this Lenten season. It is one of four annual special offerings in our church. OGHS is the single, largest way that Presbyterians come together ever year to work for a better world.
This Is Church
When disaster strikes, we join hands alongside communities as they recover and find hope from natural and human caused disasters.
This Is Church
When poverty and violence cause hunger. We join hands to help alleviate hunger and its causes.
This is Church
When injustice falls on those who are vulnerable, we join hands and seek to overcome poverty and develop initiatives they may own.
OGHS is in over 100 countries now. Thank you for joining hands with Presbyterians Worldwide in sharing God’s love with our neighbors-in-need around the world.
If we all do a little, it adds up to a lot!
