NewsOne Great Hour of Sharing Special Offering March 10

Hunger can be brought on by disasters, poverty, or conflict—but the experience of hunger to those who are hungry goes deeper. In a world where climate change disproportionately impacts places and people already struggling with food insecurity, now is the time to share—generously and creatively.

One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) reminds us that it “is time to share” by giving to others in small ways which make a big difference—even one we cannot see ourselves. There are many ways for us to know God’s generosity in our lives and to share that with others. Sometimes, we just need to think about them in new ways.


One Great Hour of Sharing is one of four special mission offerings of the United Church of Christ. This Lenten Offering supports the disaster, refugee and development ministries of the United Church of Christ within Wider Church Ministries.

CUCC will be taking an OGHS collection on Sunday, March 10th and joining other congregations in this time of sharing. To donate:

  • Bring or mail your check made out to CUCC with OGHS on the memo line
