Middle Valley Church of God, at 1703 Thrasher Pike in Hixson, announced that it has adopted the theme, "A Thinking Church," for the month of January, 2013.
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, "What Are My Choices?," in the 10:30 a.m. service on Sunday. He will lead the church in a time of prayer and Bible reading in the 6:30 p.m. service on Sunday, 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.
Middle Valley Church of God was founded in 1946 and has served the Middle Valley community from the same location concentrating on community ministry with various ministry partnerships.
