And now these three remain:
faith, hope and love.
But the greatest of these is love.
— 1 Cor. 13:13
When you give to One Great Hour of Sharing, you deploy resources to people in need all around the world, and in our own communities. When man-made or natural disasters strike, love responds. Not just for the immediate future, but for the long haul. When you give to One Great Hour of Sharing, you are working alongside families to restore not only structures, but hope. Your giving ensures that no matter how difficult the situation, Love remains.
The OGHS offering will be collected at First Baptist, Marion, IA, during the month of June. Our Outreach committee has set a goal of $1,000. You can give online through our church by clicking on this button and selecting OGHS on the “To:” pulldown.

Did You Know?
This offering began seventy-three years ago in response to the devastation of World War II. In March 1949, a national broadcast on a Saturday evening asked Americans to give generously the next morning in their churches. A remarkable assembly of national leaders and celebrities gave their efforts to the broadcast, and more than 75,000 churches responded the next day.
Today, Love remains. One Great Hour of Sharing serves people in over 80 countries around the world. Sponsored by eight Christian U.S. denominations and Church World Service, One Great Hour of Sharing makes sure that we can respond to needs as soon as they happen and that tens of thousands of people receive support for ongoing relief, rehabilitation, and development.
