    OGHSOne Great Hour of Sharing Sunday, March 29th. One Great Hour of Sharing offering reaches those near and far, sometimes changing the life of someone in distress in your own community while at other times impacting the lives of those we may never meet.  God provides the resources so that we can give back.  Our abundance becomes their need and their need becomes our abundance.  What if we all lived as if this is our call?  We would change the world.   As  you consider your offering this year, consider those in need and your ability to give. Will you give to One Great Hour?  Click here to see video
