One Great Hour of Sharing Offering 2017

One Great Hour of Sharing Offering 2017

 

One Great Hour of Sharing (“OGHS”) is one of four annual offerings received by American Baptist churches.  OGHS makes the love of Christ real for individuals and communities around the world who suffer the effects of disaster, conflict, poverty or severe economic hardship, and for those who find themselves refugees or displaced within their home country.

Contributions to OHGS make a difference in the lives of people.  Church World Service, with overseas partners are often the first on the scene following a disaster of natural or human origin.  The needs of the people are identified and priorities are set to bring long-term solutions that will improve the quality of life for individuals and communities around the world.
