Our annual all-church, international emergency relief offering, One Great Hour of Sharing, has many powerful stories to tell. The UCC works collaboratively to use OGHS dollars effectively through: National Disaster Ministries; Refugee Ministries; Global Ministries and Volunteer Ministries. Through One Great Hour of Sharing, we are able to reach out with compassion and practical assistance to assist refugees, support sustainable development, and assist worldwide with emergencies. Every donation to OGHS makes a difference. If you can make a gift, you may do so by check (payable to First Congregational Church of Burlington; Memo: OGHS) or via our website. Thank you!
OGHS dollars are needed for many global development and emergency relief efforts including in the U.S. Currently, there is a major effort to respond to tornado and storm related damage and rebuilding projects in Oklahoma and Texas, as well as on the East Coast.
