Public Bible Lecture
The Portland Congregation of the United Church of God would like to invite you to a Public Bible Lecture
on Sunday March 26, 2017
from 5:00-7:30 PM at the
Red Lion Inn Jantzen Beach
Topics will include:
1. How long was Jesus Christ in the tomb?
2. God's Holy Days--Why we observe them and what they teach us
Will the Wicked be Tormented Forever?
"He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name. At first glance, this may seem to confirm the traditional idea of a seething, sulfurous hellfire, mercilessly and eternally tormenting helpless immortal souls. But, if we don't already hold to that mental picture of hell, we can see that this passage describes a quite different circumstance.

Christ's first coming prophesied in detail
And so, dear brothers and sisters, I please with you to give your bodies to God because of all He has done for you. Let them be a living sacrifice-the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. - NLT
- Romans 12:1
Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. - NLT

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!
Jesus Christ taught us "You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free (John 8:32)." Finding Real truth in today's confusion of religious teachings brings real freedom, but it can be a challenge. Our goal is to teach and live the whole truth of the Bible and prepare for the coming Kingdom of God. We are following the steps of the Apostle Paul, as in his words we, "...declare to you the whole counsel of God. (Acts 20:27)"
We assemble on each weekly Sabbath Day as Jesus and the Apostles did. We keep the annual Holy Days that Jesus, the Apostles and the early New Testament church kept, and we teach the same doctrines they taught the early New Testament converts.
Our doors are always open. If you seek to better understand the awesome plan of God, come and learn more.

This Week's Beyond Today Program
Walk down the aisle in your supermarket you?ll see all kinds of foods that claim this one's healthy, that one?s nutritious. Whole foods; natural foods; organic foods. Is this really beneficial or am I being misled? Even experts disagree about the proper amount of sugar, salt and fat in our diets. Growers and government debate labels and packaging. But beyond all this, could there be a spiritual connection to what food we eat?
