One Great Hour of Sharing Offering for 2022

Listen to this Post via Text-to-Speech Narration

The theme for the 2022 One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) offering is Love Remains,” based on 1 Corinthians 13:13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. These words were written to a church in turmoil to remind them what love looks like in community.

What does love look like in our UCC Community? Through your collective generosity, the United Church of Christ has worked with both domestic and international partners to provide food, water, medicines, education, disaster recovery resources and opportunities for sustainable development, bringing hope to places of despair. Your gifts to OGHS allow us to put love into action to make a difference in the lives of individuals and communities in crisis around the world.

Sunday, March 27, 2022, the fourth Sunday of Lent, is the recommended date for the offering. Resources to help you promote the offering will be mailed to your churches beginning the week of February 21, 2022. And for your newsletters and worship planning purposes, resources are already available for download on the UCC website. You may also order additional copies of these materials from UCC Resources.

Thank you for your enthusiasm in promoting the One Great Hour of Sharing offering in your churches and for your generous gifts to ensure that Love Remains.
