Christ promised them great rewards for their faithful perseverance. Join us a we study the church in Philadelphia for timeless instruction for us today.

Reminder: LIVE Bible Study Webcast—Thyatira, the Corrupt Church

July 27, 2015

The Churches of Revelation

The Cincinnati East, Ohio, congregation of the United Church of God (UCG) is continuing its bi-weekly Beyond Today Bible study series titled: “The Churches of Revelation.” The story of Thyatira will be covered on Wednesday, July 29, at the time of 7 p.m. Eastern and will be available live via webcast.

For this fifth study, Beyond Today presenter and church pastor Steve Myers will expound upon , “Thyatira—The Corrupt Church.” The letter to Thyatira is the longest letter to any of the seven churches mentioned in the book of Revelation. Wonderful positive complements are paid to the members, yet they had a major problem. It was a difficult issue that threatened the health of the Church. It was a concern that endangered their relationships. It was the most dangerous of all doctrines that jeopardized their eternal life. Even today this same matter could keep us from the Kingdom. Join us as we study the church in Thyatira for insight into that dangerous doctrine.

Here is the remaining schedule for the Churches of Revelation series:

  • July 29, 2015: Thyatira—The Corrupt Church – Steve Myers
  • August 12, 2015: Sardis—The Dead Church – Gary Petty
  • August 26, 2015: Philadelphia—The Faithful Church – Steve Myers
  • September 9, 2015: Laodicea—The Lukewarm Church – Darris McNeely

Reminder: NEW Bible Study Series Starts Wednesday

June 1, 2015

The Cincinnati East, Ohio, congregation of the United Church of God (UCG) is starting a new bi-weekly Beyond Today Bible study series with the title: “The Churches of Revelation.” The series starts on Wednesday, June 3, at the time of 7 p.m. ET and is available live via webcast.

For the first study, Peter Eddington, operation manager for the United Church of God’s Media and Communications Services department, will present an introductory overview titled, “The Totality of the Church.” This Bible study will provide an introduction and overview of the churches of Revelation—giving especially some history, geography and context—so that as we study each congregation in detail in subsequent studies we will more fully appreciate what we are reading. The churches spoken of in Revelation 2 and 3 have multiple meanings and applications—both of the actual congregations of the first century A.D., and of our church down through time.

Here is the schedule for the new Revelation series:

  • June 3, 2015: Overview—The Totality of the Church – Peter Eddington
  • June 17, 2015: Ephesus—The Loveless Church – Darris McNeely
  • July 1, 2015: Smyrna—The Persecuted Church – Gary Petty
  • July 15, 2015: Pergamos—Where Satan Dwelt – Darris McNeely
  • July 29, 2015: Thyatira—The Corrupt Church – Steve Myers
  • August 12, 2015: Sardis—The Dead Church – Gary Petty
  • August 26, 2015: Philadelphia—The Faithful Church – Steve Myers
  • September 9, 2015: Laodicea—The Lukewarm Church – Darris McNeely

Good News Print Advertising Test to Reach 446,000 Households

May 6, 2015

Literature Ads to be Tested in 23 U.S. Sunday Newspapers on May 17, 2015

We are pleased to report that on Sunday, May 17, 2015 the United Church of God will place a total of 446,000 full-page literature advertisements in the coupon sections in twenty-three U.S. Sunday newspapers. Known in the industry as “free standing inserts,” these newspaper ad sections are often the most popular in Sunday newspapers.

Our experiment of this advertising method will not only serve as a witness in these geographic areas, but will also determine the potential response and cost-per-response we could expect if we consider a future roll-out into other cities. We will test two ads featuring our highly-popular Beyond Today Bible study aids: The Middle East in Bible Prophecy and How to Understand the Bible. Listed below are the cities, newspapers and circulation levels included in this effort.

DISH Network Changes Channel for ION Network

March 31, 2015

Here is an important update for those who watch the United Church of God’s Beyond Today TV program via satellite on DISH Network. DISH has moved ION to channel 250. It’s no longer on channel 216.

This is a unilateral decision by DISH and is a permanent change. It appears the change was made two Fridays ago. During the transition DISH has been airing a change notification. However, such a notice would not help those viewers who DVR the program, so if you have your recorder set for Friday mornings please update your settings.

A full station listing for Beyond Today can be found online at www.ucg.org/beyond-today/channels. (The DISH listing will be updated later today.)

TONIGHT: Live Bible Study Webcast

Why Should We Leave Sin?

March 18, 2015

The Cincinnati East, Ohio, congregation of the United Church of God (UCG) is continuing its bi-weekly Bible study series “Let Us Keep the Feasts.” Tune in TONIGHT, Wednesday, March 18, at the time of 7 p.m. ET live via webcast.

For the fifth study, Darris McNeely, a presenter on Beyond Today, will cover the topic: “Why Should We Leave Sin?” “Why is Egypt a type of sin? God was determined to deliver Israel from the shackles of Egyptian slavery and plant them in a land of promise. Why was this event so important to Israel’s history? The tyranny of Egyptian culture enslaved not only the Israelites but the Egyptian people as well. As we prepare for the spring Holy Days we’ll explore many spiritual lessons from this account.

Here is the schedule for the remainder of this series:

  • March 18, 2015: Why Should We Leave Sin? – Darris McNeely
  • April 15, 2015: First Fruits – Steve Myers
  • April 29, 2015: The Power to Change – Darris McNeely
  • May 13, 2015: The Holy Spirit in Us – Steve Myers

 why should we leave sin
