Presbyterian Church and other Christian groups came together to answer this challenge: How much money can we raise in an hour to address the suffering in the world? Eventually, twenty denominations joined this effort to make the love of Christ real for individuals and communities around the world who suffer from the effects of disaster, violence, and/or severe economic deprivation. The visionary people who gave birth to OGHS wanted to show the power that can be generated when Christians unite in a common cause. Today, the offering’s purpose remains the same, and the need for the life-changing work of OGHS is greater than ever. The Season of Lent reminds us who we are, who we serve, and how we are called to live lives of faith. OGHS presents us a wonderful opportunity to answer the call to Christian discipleship. Please give generously to the work of OGHS in this, its 70th Anniversary Year!
