Meet mission co-workers Michael and Rachel Ludwig

Michael Rachel Ludwig
About 70 percent of the people in Niger cannot read or write and have no easily accessible way to learn how. Michael and Rachel and their Nigerien partners want to change that. They are starting a literacy ministry in this deeply impoverished country. Their efforts will make Nigeriens’ day-to-day lives better and boost their chances for a brighter economic future. It will also help our partners present a respectful Christian witness in this predominantly Muslim, and typically peaceful, country. Though Niger has experienced riots and church burnings recently, our partners and the Ludwigs remain hopeful. Thanks to the prayers and financial support of people like you, numerous Nigeriens stand to gain the gift of literacy.

Please make a gift to support Michael and Rachel Ludwig and other Presbyterian mission co-workers.

One Great Hour Of Sharing

OGHSOne Great Hour of Sharing
The second Special Offering on the Liturgical calendar.

Gracie was the Lenten centerpiece of our supper table when our children were growing up. She was the reminder of what Jesus could do with small fish. My husband remembers the ½ pint milk cartons that preceded Gracie. Together they demonstrated for children the power of pennies, nickels and dimes, combined with the willingness of tiny hearts to serve God.

One Great Hour of Sharing began as a response to the devastation of World World II in Europe. It was started in 1946 as a radio plea that raised $3.8 million for relief and reconstruction. This nationwide ecumenical offering has evolved into in to an international witness to the glory of God when Christians work together for a common cause. The purpose of OGHS has remained the same for almost 70 years—to collect offerings to assist those in need. Today projects are underway in more than 100 countries, including the United States and Canada.

Perspectives: “God has a world-sized role for every Christian in God’s global purpose: Whether people go to distant countries or stay at home is a secondary issue. The primary issue is what most people are hungry to discover vision to live a life of purpose. Discovering that vision makes this course valuable, and perhaps crucial, for any Christian.  This class will introduce you to “Perspectives: a 15 week course that will be offered this year, designed around four vantage points or ‘perspectives’ – Biblical, Historical, Cultural and Strategic.  Each one highlights different aspects of God’s global purpose.”  Facilitator will be Roberta Updegraff
