Excitement overflows in the days leading to the much-awaited 4th Quarter Special Thanksgiving of God’s People of the Members Church of God International (MCGI). Members from around the world are already preparing for this joyous celebration that will be held on December 23, 24 and 25, 2022 at 5 p.m. Philippine Time.

This quarter’s International Thanksgiving will be held through in-person gatherings and virtual conferencing. While in-person gatherings are now allowed, attendees are still expected to follow minimum health protocols set by health authorities and the government for the safety of everyone.

The three-day event is expected to be filled with the singing of songs of praise, studying of God’s amazing wisdom and brethren checking on one another. The MCGI Music Ministry is already preparing for their opening numbers along with all the brethren who are likewise practicing their thanksgiving songs.

Another quarter has gone by very swiftly and the year 2022 is coming to a close already, MCGI brethren are collectively beyond thankful to the Almighty for all the blessings He had bestowed upon them, including everything in between.

Another blessed quarter

The days leading to this quarter’s International Thanksgiving have been very fruitful — with the MCGI Cares charitable endeavors of the Church continuing to be a helping hand to a lot of people in need all over the world. The unwavering support of the MCGI brethren who were taught to do good works unto all has been an integral part of this effort.

Moreover, newly launched online channels of the MCGI Cares are now up and running to inspire people with good works and share faith, hope and love over the web.

Furthermore, MCGI continues its online propagation through the broadcast of Bible Exposition and Bible Study in various languages as well as the regular Mass Indoctrination sessions wherein the doctrines of Christ are being taught.

With the help and mercy of God, thousands of souls around the world received baptism this quarter from the evangelization efforts of MCGI.

Continuing in love

This quarter saw many of MCGI’s Coordinating Centers and locales in the Philippines and abroad open again for in-person gatherings. Though majority of the brethren still gather via online means, most of them are too excited to see one another face-to-face again after a long while.

MCGI Servant Brother Daniel Razon also personally checks in on old brethren and visits locale events such as Santiago 1:27 and Fiesta ng Dios. These celebrations are derived from the Holy Scriptures in James 1:27 and Luke 14:13-14.

“Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.”

James 1:27, King James Version

“But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind: And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.”

Luke 14:13-14, King James Version
