As Election Day in the United States approaches, Dr. Timothy M. Hill, General Overseer of the Church of God, released the following statement:


“With only seven days left before Election Day here in the United States, I find it incumbent upon me as a religious leader to encourage participation by every registered voter in the election process.  Although many have talked about the importance of this election, it is my belief that we as a country are experiencing a crucible moment in our history.  We only have to look at Scriptures and witness times when God’s people minimized their focus on foundational core values that He commanded them to follow.  I feel in my heart that we as a nation are at a place where we are adjured to stand up, exercise our right and privilege to vote, and affirm our Judeo-Christian values.

I am not, under any circumstances, saying that our right to vote follows one particular candidate or one particular party.  However, if we are God’s people, I believe we must honor and protect the sanctity of life, as well as the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman, stand for racial equality, and stand against that which seeks to dishonor God and His will.  Further, I believe it is critically important that we honor and pray for the preservation of Israel.

As a body of Christian believers, we must unite together for what is right and acceptable to God.  We must make our voices heard from our houses and church houses all the way to the White House.  I ask you to join with me in prayer for God’s sovereign will to be accomplished in this election and in our nation.

While we may have different opinions about how this election will be contextualized, we all have not only a right, but a responsibility, to express our opinions and choices in the voting booth.  So, if you have not already cast your vote during early voting, I encourage you to take the necessary time on Tuesday, November 3, and vote for the candidates of your choice.  If you pray and vote based upon biblical principles and guidance, I’m confident that the future of the United States will be strong.

May God bless you greatly as you exercise your civic right and responsibilities.”

A Special Message from Dr. Timothy M. Hill, General Overseer

A Special Message from Dr. Timothy M. Hill, General Overseer



View this email in your browser


As you know, it is now only two weeks until Election Day – November 3, 2020.  Regardless of your political affiliation or your position on the issues facing our nation, it is imperative that you exercise your right to vote.

Many states have made it much easier to vote, either through mail-in ballots or through early voting. Whether you take advantage of one of these opportunities or you vote on Election Day, the voices of God-fearing Christians need to be heard at the ballot box. There is too much at stake for us not to speak up by voting.

I encourage you to view the attached video – and then share it with your friends, family, and neighbors.

In addition, I encourage you to pray for our nation and our political leaders. We need a true healing in this land. May God bless you greatly as you exercise your civic duty to vote.

Timothy M. Hill
General Overseer

Reformation Sunday Offering for Retired Ministers and Widows



Reformation Sunday Offering for Retired Ministers and Widows


View this email in your browser

Every year, the Church of God designates a Sunday in October to receive a special offering to honor retired ministers and widows.  It is called Reformation Sunday and it takes place this year on October 25, 2020.

All offerings received and designated for Reformation Sunday, will be distributed a few weeks prior to the holiday season to retired ministers and widows in the Church of God. Every dollar earmarked for this offering will be distributed to bless those who have gone before us and plowed the Harvest field.

Local churches are highly encouraged to participate in this annual offering. To assist in promoting the day, a video from Church of God General Overseer Tim Hill about Reformation Sunday may be downloaded and played in the weeks leading up to October 25. In addition, there is a link on churchofgod.org with more information.

Thank you for your efforts to honor this most precious group who have given so much to the Kingdom.
