Mitch McClure Speaks On "The Presence Of God Restores Us" On Sunday

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

Middle Valley Church of God, at 1703 Thrasher Pike in Hixson, Tennessee, announced that it has adopted the theme, "I Am Coming Out Of The Closet," for the month of August.  

Pastor Mitch McClure said, "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 Mitch McClure will speak on the topic, "The Presence of God Restores Us" 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.  

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 423 843-1539 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, please contact Pastor McClure at 423 843-1539.  Pastor McClure can also be followed on Facebook and Twitter (@McClure1Mitch).

Proud To Be A Conservative Conservationist

We have stunning mountains, wild rivers and quiet backcountry. And many of ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Why I Adore America

If Heather Cross weren’t married and didn’t have such a fine-looking family I’d swear I might propose. The dazzling lady just wrote a “By Gumbo! letter” to all the major news outlets in the world to inform them that half of the Pelican State is still submerged by “a 1,000-year flood” and where the heck are they with their cameras? She knows it is vital for the rest of America to ... (click for more)
