Matthew 25:40b  ESV  –  “Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of these least of these my brothers, you did it to me.”

     In June Meridian Avenue Baptist Church will be collecting the One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) special offering.  OGHS supports disaster relief, ministries to displaced persons, and development projects of the American Baptist Churches and its mission partners around the globe.

     In the past year, OGHS funds have been used to provide assistance to people caught in the civil unrest in Myanmar and Yemen, typhoon relief in the Philippines and help with the earthquake relief in Croatia.  OGHS has also provided funding to our mission partners in three Central American countries to assist with clean drinking water programs.

     Closer to home, OGHS has provided food and shelter assistance to the hungry and homeless in many U.S. communities and provided funds for American Baptist Men hurricane relief projects
