Nashua Presbyterian Church Our News for Sunday, May 15th, 2022 Welcoming Hearts - Growing in Faith and Service
ONE GREAT HOUR OF SHARING In a world of disaster, hunger, and oppression millions of people lack access to sustainable food sources, clean water, sanitation, education and opportunity. The three programs supported by One Great Hour of Sharing – Presbyterian Disaster Relief, The Presbyterian Hunger Program, and Self Development of People – all work in different ways to serve individuals and communities in need. Please give prayerfully to bring hope, feed the hungry and empower those in need. There are envelopes in the entryway or you may contribute by sending a check – written to the church with a notation for OGHS.
