One Great Hour of Sharing
APRIL MONTHLY MISSION
Around the world millions of people lack access to sustainable food sources, clean water, sanitation, education, and opportunity
Each gift to One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) helps to improve the lives of people in these challenging situations. The Offering provides us a way to share God’s love with our neighbors in need. In fact, OGHS is the single, largest way that Presbyterians come together every year to work for a better world.
One Great Hour of Sharing, received during the season of Lent, makes a difference in the world through three impactful programs:
· Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) – Works alongside communities as they recover and find hope after the devastation of natural or human-caused disasters.
· Presbyterian Hunger Program (PHP) – Takes action to alleviate hunger and the systemic causes of poverty so all may be fed.
· Self-Development of People – Invests in communities responding to their experiences of racism, oppression, poverty and injustice and educates Presbyterians about the impact of these societal ills.
To Benefit the Greater Washington County Food Bank
In conjunction with One Great Hour of Sharing it is time for our annual Food Drive. Together let us build another mountain of food in the back of the Sanctuary through Sunday, May 9, 2021. Non-perishable food items, hygiene items, cleaning/laundry supplies and paper products are all needed.
In past years we have donated to the Finleyville and Peters Township Food Banks which have since merged with the Canonsburg Food Bank located at Canonsburg U.P. Church. Our donations will be distributed on May 15th.
Please place all items in the back of the Sanctuary. Look for location signs.
