Good Works Announces Int’l Sister Congregation Program

June 3, 2012

The Good Works program of the United Church of God has been helping brethren around the world for nine years. We have collectively and positively impacted our brethren in some of the most remote parts of this world.

But not everyone can financially contribute, and that’s understandable. However, now there is an opportunity for everyone to serve in a meaningful way. We’re launching a new facet of Good Works—the International Sister Congregations program.

This new program provides hands-on opportunities for members to reach out to international members in non-monetary ways. This program will match participating congregations where they can begin to establish a growing network within the whole body of the United Church of God, providing brethren a greater sense of international community.

Please look for more details on this program in the next edition of the United News. In the meantime, please take a moment to vierw this short video clip about the Good Works program because, after all, we’re in this together!

  2. Have suggested this to anyone who would listen over the years. I am so happy this has finally come about! I have always felt that people in general will give of themselves in a more impactful way if they could see/feel/hear their giving did something specific. I want to know my gift made an impact. More than that I want to know how I can best help and then see it happen. UCG Portland stands ready to serve right now.

  4. I work in many of the poorest villages in Africa mostly Malawi, Mozambique and Kenya.I train pastors of various backgrounds, am currently working with about 200 pastors and about 100-150 churches in numerous villages. Most of what I teach is very simialar to teachings of UCOG. They would love sister churches, so long as the the doctrines do not involve Pharisaical “hair splitting”
