YABC: The World’s Most Radical Scripture About Jesus Christ

August 21, 2013

Join us for the next YABC (Young Adult Bible Class) this Friday night, August 23, at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (USA). It will be webcast live from the Ambassador Bible Center (ABC) lecture hall at the home office of the United Church of God in Milford, Ohio.

Randy Stiver YABCWatch and listen as Randy Stiver and Matthew Fenchel address “The World’s Most Radical Scripture About Jesus Christ.” This key passage strikes at the heart of the traditional doctrines of Heaven and Hell. And it destroys the entire concept of the Immortal Soul even as it gives hope of eternal life to billions whom traditional Christianity thought were lost! This radical verse trumpets the wonderful news of God’s true justice and mercy.

Login to the live webcast at http://abc.ucg.org/events/yabc-bible-study. Spread the word: teens and young adults of all ages are welcomed and encouraged to participate. Make your plans now—you won’t want to miss this fascinating YABC study!

Note: The monthly YABC is sponsored jointly by Ambassador Bible Center (ABC) Continuing Education, the ABC Alumni Association and Youth and Young Adult Services of the United Church of God, an International Association (UCGIA).

Focus on God’s Work: The Philippines

August 14, 2013

The home office has released its sixth Focus on God’s Work video. This edition is by Victor Kubik, president of the United Church of God, who gives an update on his July 2013 visit to UCG congregations in the Philippines.

As earlier announced, the plan is for various managers and employees of the United Church of God to give a report about their area of responsibility that may be of particular interest to our congregations. Pastors are asked to make the video links available to our membership, and most videos will be suitable to play in the sermonette timeslot at Sabbath services if desired.

Focus on God’s Work has it’s own menu selection on the member’s website under the “resources” tab at members.ucg.org/content/focus-gods-work. This is where a new video will be posted each month.

More Publications Available in French

L'Eglise que Jesus a fondeeWe are pleased to announce some new literature available in the French language. In addition to the regular, bi-monthly production of our magazine, Bonnes Nouvelles, in the past year two booklets have been revised  and updated: “Why Does God Allow Suffering?” and “What Is Your Destiny?” The latter had been available in French since 1997, but had been revised in English in 1998. This new French update went to print last May. It follows the 1998 english version and required a complete new translation. This booklet receives a lot of requests,  and we are very happy to now have a much more complete discussion of this vital topic available in French.

Plus, in the past year, the booklet titled “Vous pouvez obtenir une foi vivante” (You Can Have Living Faith ) was completed and sent to print. Also, in late 2012, a brand new French booklet titled “L’Église que Jésus a fondée” (The Church Jesus Built) went to print and is now available. Last July the Bible Study Course lesson N°8 , titled “Qu’est-ce que la conversion chrétienne?” also became available in French.

This brings to 15 the number of our United Church of God booklets available in French and we are working toward completing all 12 lessons of the Bible Study Course.

We appreciate your prayers that God may work in the lives of those reading these publications in the French-speaking world.
