Middle Valley Church of God, at 1703 Thrasher Pike in Hixson, announces that Pastor Mitch McClure will speak on the topic, "Using Your Hands To Worship God" in the 10:30 a.m. service on Sunday. This message will focus on the Biblical pattern of God calling men and women to worship Him with their hands and how we can testify of the goodness of God with our hands.
