Middle Valley Church Of God Adopts Theme "A Thinking Church" For January

Wednesday, January 2, 2013

Middle Valley Church of God, located at 1703 Thrasher Pike in Hixson, has adopted the theme, "A Thinking Church," for the month of January.  Pastor Mitch McClure explained, "As we enter the new year, most individuals make goals and resolutions relative to their lives.  These include exercise, diet, work habits, and, even, their spiritual life.  It is our plan to encourage those who attend Middle Valley to think about their relationship with God as we enter the new year.

.  I shall be preaching specially developed sermons each week in January."  

Pastor McClure will speak on the topic, "Where Do We Start?," in the10:30 a.m. service this Sunday, and will lead the church in a time of prayer and Bible reading in the 6:30 p.m. service in conjunction with the READ Initiative developed by the Church of God.  READ encourages all believers to concentrate on reading the Bible completely in 2013.  Middle Valley is participating in this initiative.

Each Wednesday at 7 p.m. classes are made available for all age groupings.  Pastor McClure is presently leading a Bible study on Grace.  This study is partially based on a book by Dr. David Jeremiah.
 
Sunday School is available each Sunday at 9:30 a.m. with classes for all age groupings.

Roy Exum: Vulgar Trump & More

Nothing rankles me more than seeing obscenities and vulgarity that appears in today’s liberal media, not to dare mention our public forum. Understand, I will use “damn” when no other word will fit as well. I’ll use “hell” as an exclamation point sometimes and I also may quote an aggressor in a story where he threatens to whip another’s “ass.” But our President reached an all-time ... (click for more)
