CGN Local Contact Responsibilities & Guidelines
- Periodically visit other COG groups
Periodically visit the other Church of God organizations in your area. Always contact them ahead of time to ask permission to visit and obtain input from your home congregation minister to determine when visiting is best (prioritize your home congregation responsibilities).
- Do NOT cause division
When you visit, avoid arguments, controversial beliefs/doctrines, and other things that cause division amongst brethren.
- Work WITH not against leadership
When you visit another congregation, respect the authority that is in place. Keep in mind that you are a guest in their congregation.
Find any way to help out and serve that you can! There are always things to do and we’re sure the places you visit will value your willingness to assist them in whatever is needed.
- Make friends!
Learn about your brothers and sisters in the places you visit. Make friends, develop meaningful relationships, and enjoy yourself!
- Keep your eyes and ears open for ways CGN can help in your area
Keep abreast of what is going on in your area, maintain relationships with brethren and ministers, and know who to contact in your area for information or assistance.
- Be available for periodic phone/Zoom calls with the CGN team
