UCG Hymnal Now in French

September 23, 2011

We are delighted to announce the completion of a French Hymnal for the United Church of God!

Mr. Jean-Paul Gorisse, a long-time Church member in France—aided by several volunteers—had been working on this project since the beginning of United. Over the years Mr. Gorisse had compiled the translated hymns into three different spiral bound books so the French brethren could start using them for services.

In March 2011, we started the process of putting them all together, and Mr. Gorisse was able to add over 20 new hymns to end up with a 217-page hymnbook—almost identical to our English hymnbook.

The books came off the press on September 14, and the French-speaking brethren in France and Africa will receive them in time to sing from them at the Feast of Tabernacles.

We are very grateful to God for providing this tool at this time, and we look forward to using it to worship Him in songs and to rejoice even more.

  1. How wonderful the French brethren will be getting the hymnal in their own language. It will certainly add to their enjoyment at the Feast of Tabernacles and in their regular church services. Thank you for all the hard work and time the volunteers gave to make this a reality! Merci beaucoup!
