Pastor Mitch McClure of Middle Valley Church of God, located at 1703 Thrasher Pike in Hixson, will speak on the topic, "Words Do Matter" in the 10:30 a.m. service this Sunday. This message will focus on the reality that our words do impact others. At times we speak words that are harmful, yet we do not seem concerned. The goal of this message is to encourage Believers to think before they speak since words can do harm.
Pastor McClure will lead the congregation in a time of prayer and Bible reading at 6:30 p.m. The congregation is participating in the year long READ Initiative sponsored by the Church of God. This Initiative is intended to motivate all participants to read through the entire Bible in twelve months.
Each Wednesday at 7 p.m. classes are made available for all age groupings. Pastor McClure is presently leading a Bible study called, "Developing A Spiritual Strategy." It is partially based on a book by Tony Evans and is being taught in the Administrative Classroom of the church.
Sunday School is available each Sunday at 9:30 a.m. with classes for all age groupings.
Middle Valley Church of God has established a 24-hour prayer line. The 24-hour telephone number is 843-1539 and is available for confidential prayer requests. Each request received will be included in prayer ministry of the church.
