Zion Bible Study club exceeds donation goal of $5000

The concert was held on June 25th at San Diego State University and was a huge success!  More than 500 people attended the benefit concert hosted by the Zion Bible Study Club to support the WWP Project.  As a result, more than $5,000 was raised and presented to the WWP in San Diego.  The members of the non denominational Christian bible study club participate in various events to spread the love of God the Mother.  Many of the members of the club either currently serve in the military or have loved ones who are veterans.  Because of this, they understand how important it is to do whatever they can to support organizations like the Wounded Warrior Project.  The money that was raised will help fund programs to empower wounded veterans and their families.

Special guests from “The Voice” and “American Idol” performed to support the event

Everyone who attended the concert enjoyed special performances by Katriz Trinidad from “The Voice” and Jessica Sanchez from “American Idol”.  The members of the Church of God Choir and Orchestra also performed.  They inspired everyone with songs that included “Heavens Army” and “God Bless the USA”.

World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) in San Diego helped beautify Balboa Park for it’s 100th Anniversary

2015 was the Centennial Year for San Diego’s historic Balboa Park, a popular attraction for many locals and visitors to America’s Finest City. World Mission Society Church of God members worked together to clean up and restore various parts of the park so everyone can enjoy it. Over the course of the year, the WMSCOG in San Diego held six different community service events within Balboa Park. They put in more than 5,000 hours of volunteer service work to make the park more beautiful. Volunteers cleared out truckloads of palm fronds from the bottom of Palm Canyon near the Organ Pavilion in Balboa Park. One park ranger said, “the Church of God is an excellent example of how great a job a group of concerned people can do for our society, and we are very grateful and thankful!” The members of the WMSCOG continually participate in projects like these worldwide.  What gives them such passion to help so many people and communities?  The answer is simple, it is to share the Love of God the Mother with the whole world!

World Mission Society Church of God members helped to restore the 100-year-old fountain in Gold Hill Park

Golden Hill Park, located on 26th St near Pershing Drive is one of the oldest parks in San Diego. It is a part of Balboa Park. Established in 1907, the Golden Hill Fountain was very popular and drew attraction to the park. Unfortunately, over the next 100 years, it became very deteriorated due to weather conditions and vandalism. The WMSCOG worked together with the City of San Diego to help restore the fountain and its surrounding area. On October 18, 2015, more than 400 WMSCOG volunteers worked throughout the entire Golden Hill Park. Residents driving by honked their horns in appreciation of the great work the members were performing which encouraged them.

WMSCOG members recognized with the Presidential Volunteer Service Award and Directors Award for Exemplary Service

The City of San Diego was extremely appreciative of the efforts WMSCOG put into all the areas of Balboa Park. On April 9, 2016, the City of San Diego held The Annual Volunteer Recognition Event. At the event, the city presented WMSCOG volunteers with the City of San Diego Director’s Award. This award had never been given to a volunteer group before. The City of San Diego decided to change this tradition to recognize the amazing work and exceptional volunteer service efforts of World Mission Society Church of God members. In addition to the Director’s Award, the City of San Diego also nominated the World Mission Society Church of God to receive the United States Presidential Volunteer Service Award. The nomination for the Presidential Volunteer Service Award was to acknowledge their hard work not only locally but Nationally.
