Exciting News & Updates from UCGIA

Print Advertising to Reach 13.2 Million Households in 2012-2013

August 2, 2012

We are very pleased to report that between July 2012 and March 2013 the United Church of God will mail Good News subscription advertisements to 13,200,000 households in the United States at a cost of under 2¢ each. This household quantity nearly doubles the 7,800,000 we reached during the previous fiscal year.

Through this card pack mailing effort we expect to add nearly 65,000 new readers at about $3.00 each. Potential subscribers will be offered a one-year subscription to The Good News and at least one or more of the following ten booklets:

During the past six fiscal years (June 2006 through June 2012) the United Church of God has reached 78.5 million households through print media campaigns. These annual efforts have included the use of card packs, co-op mailers, sampling programs, magazine inserts, package inserts and brochure take-one programs.

As always, we greatly appreciate your prayers for God’s blessings on the Church’s efforts to publish and broadcast the Gospel throughout the world.

    • When the Church split in 1994 over doctrinal issues I had no contact with no Church members or Ministers’ until one day in the summer of 1999 coming from work I had to use a public restroom’ I noticed a Good News magazine on the top of the toilet’ I opened it up and removed the insert card and mailed it in..As they say good thing do come from God and in small packages. Thank You! UCGIA for your faithful service to the one true God.

      • Victoria and all:

        I practice “restroom evangelism” by always leaving my old Good News magazines or other church materials stradling on the handicap bars in bathrooms. You never know who may pick them up, and it “recycles” the materials as an outreach.

        Dont throw away your old UCG materials, lay them out at bus stops, waiting rooms and yes BATHROOMS!

        Your Friend,

  2. Our seeds, as we call our used Good News magazines, get recyled in airports and left in the seat pocket of our flights when we travel. A nice little suprise reading left inside the airlines magazine….it gets a little longer reading life if you put it inside the airlines magazine as the flight attendants tend to throw out anything else. Hopsital ICU waiting rooms are also an excellent place to leave the magazines and booklets.
