Middle Valley Church of God, at 1703 Thrasher Pike in Hixson, Tennessee, has adopted the theme, "In Christ Alone," for the month of March. Pastor Mitch McClure said, "I shall be preaching specially developed sermons each week in March. March 2013 provides us the opportunity to lift up the reality that our salvation is through Christ alone. As I preach this Sunday, my purpose will be to engage those attending to understand that Jesus Christ suffered greatly during the time of the crucifixion. His pain and suffering was for the redemption of humanity and demonstrates the love that Jesus Christ has for us."
Pastor McClure will speak on the topic, "It Did Hurt!" 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 The Holy Spirit and His involvement in our lives. This study is partially based on a book by John Sims and is titled, God With Us And In Us.
Sunday School is available each Sunday at 9:30 a.m. with classes for all age groupings.
