One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) is one of three offerings that the Canaan Congregational Church sponsors during the year to support its wider mission. This offering enables the United Church of Christ to reach people and communities affected by disaster, displacement, or poverty, in the United States and throughout the world. The Missions Group is pleased to announce that this year’s offering from the Canaan Church totaled $905! That’s generous giving to OGHS!
In other giving, the Missions Group was able to contribute $800 in response to a special appeal from the Berkshire Immigrant Center, which each year provides important support services to the families of more than 800 immigrants and refugees living in the Berkshires. The initial contribution was generously supplemented by gifts from four members of the congregation who are especially interested in the work of the Center.
Once again, this little church has come up big in its response to appeals for assistance from the local and global communities!
