You shall be called repairers of the breach. —Isaiah 58
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. For more than 70 years, One Great Hour of Sharing has provided us a way to share God’s love with our neighbors in need. In fact, OGHS is the single, largest way Presbyterians come together every year to work toward a better world.
Congregations and mid councils that have a standing order for OGHS should have received their resources by now. If resources have not been received, contact Presbyterian Customer Service at 800-533-4371 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join us for informative webinars — if you are not available at these times, visit the Offering page to watch a recording.

And as always, there is a new Gracie the Fish story, Gracie Helps a Hermit, that can be used with the fish coin boxes.
