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.

Elizabeth Affsprung.  Handbook will be provided.
Change bags aren’t  just for change anymore: There are a variey of tools that do not require high tech equipment or a brain surgeon to use when teaching others about Jesus Christ.  Change bags, evangecubes, stickers, flaming Bibles, and other items can be used to teach children, youth and Alzheimer patients.  Simple messages about the love of Jesus.  Persons attending the seminar will learn how to use such tools to minister to the needs of others, and how to obtain them.  Facilitator will be the Rev. Dr. James Behrens.
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
