How You Can Help:
Continuing to share during a time of virtual gathering and global pandemic:
1. If your church is already set up to receive offerings online and offers a way for givers to designate gifts to OGHS, please continue to do what works for your church.
2. If your church does not typically receive Special Mission Offerings online, but would like to provide a way for congregants to do so, you can direct them to the following opportunities:
-Give online via secure donation form (desktop or mobile).
-Text OGHS to 41444 and follow the prompts to give securely.
Make a secure online gift today, giving generously to the One Great Hour of Sharing offering. The suggested offering date is March 22, 2020. However, gifts, or additional gifts may be given to the offering at any time. OGHS Resources are available to help promote the offering and may be order from UCC Resources.
Donate to a Specific Natural Disaster or Refugee Emergency - designate the emergency on the giving page or in the memo line of your check.
Assemble Church World Service Kits to support a variety of needs in the US and internationally.
