Middle Valley Church of God, at 1703 Thrasher Pike in Hixson, has adopted the theme, "I Am Coming Out Of The Closet," for the month of August. Pastor Mitch McClure explained, "I shall be preaching specially developed sermons each week in August. The church has to evaluate what it teaches and preaches according to the Bible, God's Word. It cannot be controlled by opinion polls and the changing community standards. Each week I shall preach on highly important doctrinal issues that are being challenged today."
Pastor McClure will speak on the topic, "We Must Move Into God's Presence" in the 10:30 a.m. service on Sunday. This message will focus on the Biblical pattern of moving into God's presence in order to receive His grace in our lives today, said Pastor McClure.
Pastor McClure will lead the church in a time of prayer, communion, and Bible reading in the 6:30 p.m. service on Sunday. The church is participating in the READ Bible Reading Initiative of the Church of God.
Each Wednesday at 7 p.m. classes are made available for all age groupings. Pastor McClure is presently leading a Bible study called, "The Invested Life." It is partially based on a book by Joel Rosenberg 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.
