“Mother’s Street” Cleanup Campaign

“Mother’s Street”

Towards the end of 2017, the World Mission Society Church of God carried out the “Mother’s Street” cleanup movement on an enormous scale. The goal in mind: promoting health and happiness among community members, while cleaning a total distance of the circumference of the earth. The campaign began in earnest on November 19 and lasted until December 3.

The name of the movement stems from the Church of God’s belief in God the Mother. A mother cares for her household even down to the smallest of details. In the same way, members went out with the love of Heavenly Mother to give their community parks and streets a heartfelt cleaning.


“Mother’s Street” took place in about 175 countries, as members in more than 6,000 different regions participated in the global effort. Meanwhile, U.S. members played their own part in their local communities. As a result, the cleanup campaign covered a total distance of 25,000 miles—just over the circumference of the earth. In this way, the members encouraged their neighbors to join the ongoing effort to clean up the whole world.

On the East Coast, volunteers performed cleanups in Connecticut, Florida, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina and Pennsylvania. Moreover, countries such as Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Cameroon, Ghana, India, Mexico, Mongolia, and South Africa also participated in the effort.

Church of God Volunteerism in Society

The Church of God conducts volunteerism in five main areas—environmental protection, disaster relief, blood donations, social welfare, and smile campaigns. To date, the Church of God has conducted more than 4,600 environmental protection activities around the world.

Additionally, the Church of God hosted a two-week disaster relief drive for Puerto Rico in the wake of three consecutive hurricanes. Churches of God throughout the East Coast and in the Caribbean collected canned food and basic necessities to be sent to the island nation.

    As a volunteer and member of the Church of God, this was the most EPIC cleanup I’ve been a part of. Just to see that as a church we participated in unity in this worldwide cleanup. I’ve experienced that when people see a clean street, home, environment, etc., their mindset changes. Their day can start off positively. When this world is cleaned with the love of Mother, we can have a positive mindset spiritually. I am very thankful to be a member of the WMSCOG.

    Wow it’s so amazing that the whole world can be cleaned in one week — surely the work of God. If it can be done physically, it can surely be done spiritually as well.
