One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) is a special mission offering that is received annually during Lent by the UCC  congregations. Its purpose is to provide a ministry of support and recovery for those who are affected by natural disaster, relentless violence, or pervasive poverty around the world and in the US.

As members and friends within the UCC, you can assist in making a difference in the lives of others whom you might never meet personally. Your contributions to OGHS will put you in the right place at the right time when the lives of many are suddenly or routinely overwhelmed by calamity.

You are invited to give financially to OGHS during worship on Sunday morning, March 19th or on a succeeding Sunday. You can also give online at or by mailing a check to First UCC. When giving, please be sure to indicate that your contribution is for OGHS.

Thank you! Your generosity makes all the difference in the lives of others!
