Some thoughts! - - -

OGHS March 11!

Yes! That is the one great hour of sharing! Most of the money to help the needy is raised in one hour. Around the USA, church after church, UCC, Presbyterian, Church of Christ (Disciples), Methodist, Lutheran, Reformed, and so many others.

Scripture Reference: Matthew 25:36

"I was naked and you gave me something to wear.

Theme:  You are here!

Words cannot capture the anguish of people when they lose everything in a disaster or have to leave it behind while fleeing war or conflict. Through One Great Hour of Sharing, lives are literally changed daily. Your support provides clean water, food, medicines, shelter, healthcare, education and so much more. 

In 2015, the OGHS offering was $2.2 million. An additional $831 thousand was given to the United Church of Christ Disaster Ministries in support of specific disaster relief efforts. You can find OGHS on the web:, and on Facebook and Twitter.

What is One Great Hour of Sharing?
One Great Hour of Sharing, as part of Our Churches Wider Mission, is the special mission offering of the United Church of Christ that carries God’s message of love and hope to people in crisis. The UCC works with international partners to provide sources of clean water, food, education and health care, small business micro-credit, advocacy and resettlement for refugees and displaced persons, and emergency relief and rehabilitation.  OGHS also supports domestic and international ministries for disaster preparedness and response.  

I you have ever wondered what you can do together, this is your chance to make a difference. Together we address hurricane, drought, or disaster. Together we act in faith for the safety, health and life of the world.

        We look forward to visitors! We have a regular congregation of the faithful. While we welcome vacationers, tourists, summer people, or new or old residents are invited to come to worship any and all Sundays.
         We have a traditional worship service in a beautiful, historic building, where God is still speaking and ALL are welcome! Just come any Sunday morning at 10:30. Communion on the second Sunday of each month (first Sunday in October) is open to all Christians. Coffee hour follows every worship service.

We have more people in the summer than the winter because we have a lot of pleople spend their vacations here, then they join us for worship.

      You can expect traditional Protestant worship. During worship, at the time of prayers, you may hear members expessing their request for prayers. You may say something or not as you choose.

      We sing three hymns and hear a good and timely message. This is a church that expects the exposition of the Word to be applied to the condition of the world.
