One Great Hour of Sharing, April 2015

One Great Hour of Sharing

One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) is the refugee, relief and development offering of the United Church of Christ. This year’s theme for OGHS is “Give and Change the World.” Gifts given through this special offering empower people in poverty to learn a trade, raise their own food, and grow in faith. United in Christ, we help to provide access to healthy food, good education, excellent health care, and shelter after devastating storms.

PACC will accept donations through April 13.  You can make your donation by check payable to PACC with OGHS on the memo line, by putting cash in an OGHS envelope or a blue pew envelope labeled with OGHS on the special occasion line or online at  If you donate online, be sure to check that it is an “individual gift,” that the UCC Affiliation box shows “yes” and list Park Avenue Congregational Church, Arlington, MA as your congregation.
