Engage with the Christmas Joy Offering during COVID-19

Lesson Plan for Younger Children

During this lesson, children grades K-4 will:

  • Be able to name each of the three recipients of the OGHS offerings by both its full name and its acronym.
  • Understand the connection between sharing what we have with others and living into God’s call to care for those in need.
  • Be able to place themselves in the wider community of faith in the PC(USA) and beyond as participants in the One Great Hour of Sharing offering.
