Demonstrating Our Love Is Middle Valley Church Of God February Theme

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

Middle Valley Church of God, at 1703 Thrasher Pike in Hixson, has adopted the theme, "Demonstrating Our Love," for the month of February.   

Pastor Mitch McClure explained, "I shall be preaching specially developed sermons each week in February.  The fact is that we live in a difficult time.  Life is more difficult in 2013 than in 1973.  There are challenges today that push all of us to the edge.  The Bible clearly states that God wants to help us all live productive lives.  As I preach this Sunday, my purpose will be to engage those attending to understand that God is there to help in these difficult times."   

Pastor McClure will speak on the topic, "Learning How To Love Life and Living," in the 10:30 a.m. service on Sunday. 

Pastor McClure will lead the church in a time of Scripture reading and worship in the 6:30 p.m.  service on Sunday.  The church is participating in the READ Initiative of the Church of God.  READ encourages all to read the Bible on a daily basis with the goal of reading the Bible through in 2013. 

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 and is titled, Captured by Grace. 

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 843-1569 and is available for confidential prayer requests.  Each request received will be included in prayer ministry of the church. 

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.  For additional information, contact Pastor McClure at 843-1539.  Pastor McClure can also be followed on Facebook and Twitter (@McClure1Mitch).
