We are a part of a worldwide organization with congregations in the United States,
Canada, and on all major continents.
We have two congregations in the Portland area: one in Vancouver Washington and the other congregation in nearby Hood River Oregon.
Our mission is to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God and to prepare a people for that kingdom. Our home office is in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Where Did Valentine's Day come from?
The World Book Encyclopedia tells us regarding Valentine's Day: "The customs connected with the day . . . probably come from an ancient Roman festival called Lupercalia which took place every February 15. The festival honored Juno, the Roman goddess of women and marriage, and Pan, the god of nature."

Welcome to the Portland/Hood River Oregon Web Site
We would like to welcome you to the Portland/Hood River congregations of the United Church of God. If you found us surfing
the internet you may wonder who we are and what we believe? Remember the 1990s and the abbreviation WWJD—"What Would Jesus Do".
Change those initials ever so slightly to WDJD—"What Did Jesus Do" and it describes the focus and passion of our ministry
We assemble weekly on the day Jesus and the Apostles met, we keep the annual celebrations Jesus, the Apostles and the early New
Testament Church kept and we seek to respect the same doctrines they taught the early New Testament converts.
Our Doors are always open as you seek to better understand the awesome plan of God. Join us for worship, learning, songs and fellowship.
- Rex and Patty Sexton
This Week's Beyond Today Program
Have you ever met an angel? If you did, would you know? Consider this passage from the Bible. "Let brotherly love continue. Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels". This simple statement shows us God's unseen hand in our lives and in the course of history. Angels are God's servants in His divine, creative plan for mankind.
