Share the Love: One Great Hour of Sharing 2023

The United Church of Christ fulfills its commitment to respond to a variety of global and domestic concerns by providing advocacy, sustainable development resources, long-term disaster recovery support, and assistance for refugees and asylum seekers, working in collaboration with our partners locally and globally. We do this through our giving program, One Great Hour of Sharing.

The One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) helps organizations around the world confront food insecurity and hunger. OGHS partners with others to provide immediate aid to those affected by disasters, poverty, or fleeing conflict—providing food, water, shelter, and companionship during times of distress.

OGHS gifts allow families to plant crops, produce fertilizers and receive the physical seeds they need for planting. Contributions to OGHS allow women and men to learn practices of irrigation and sustainable farming techniques. OGHS enables partners to teach about food and nutrition, hygiene, waste management and environmental protection. In addition, your financial gifts enable the building (and rebuilding) of structures and processes that make a difference for the future, providing education and helping hands for long-term improvements.

This year, the United Church of Christ is including the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to connect your giving to the global impacts highlighted in the goals. Our work together contributes to a global partnership committed to taking action to achieve the 17 SDGs — “a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.”

Learn more about the One Great Hour of Sharing through its 2022 Global Impact Report, linked below and consider giving this year through Carversville United Church of Christ.

You can donate through our “giving” tab at the top right corner of this web site and choose the OGHS 2023 category for your charitable gift. 100% of your gift will go directly to One Great Hour of Sharing through the United Church of Christ.

We can and do make a difference – and your generosity makes all the difference in the world.

Blessing of the Animals

Do you have a special animal companion who means the world to you? Animals bring so much love into our lives unconditionally. We’d love to meet your faithful friend – whether dog, cat, bird, fish, llama or more — all animals (and people!) are welcome at our annual blessing of the animals. We hold this special event each August in the grove just behind the church. Each animal is given an individual blessing by Pastor Fogal, and we often feature music from a local performer. We hope you’ll consider joining us for this special event.

Holiday Food Festival

One of the most popular events during the holiday season, our annual Festival of Foods supports the church and our mission projects while spotlighting some of the best local food artisan talent in Bucks County. We’ll have more than two dozen food and food-related vendors this year, a special silent auction and generous food-inspired baskets which will be raffled. You’ll be sure to find something you love and perhaps a holiday gift for someone special. Find out more details about this fantastic annual tradition on our events calendar.

We know each other and care about each other.
