One Great Hour of Sharing: OGHS is our annual all-church, ecumenical, 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. You can learn more about the important mission work made possible through gifts to “One Great Hour of Sharing” by visiting the UCC website’s OGHS page.
If you can make a gift, please make your check payable to: First Congregational Church of Burlington, MEMO: OGHS. You can also give to One Great Hour of Sharing online through the First Congregational Church website’s E-Giving Page. Cash donations are also encouraged using OGHS offering envelopes on the bulletin board at First Church – the envelopes will also be distributed during worship service on June 11 and 18.
