Mitch McClure Speaks On "Using Your Hands To Worship God" On Sunday

Wednesday, September 4, 2013
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. Pastor McClure will lead the church in prayer and Bible reading on Sunday, in the 6:30 p.m. service.  The church is participating in a year long project called READ.
  READ is an initiative of the Church of God to read the Bible through in twelve months.  Middle Valley is participating in this project by reading scripture aloud in services and by individual reading. 
 
Each Wednesday at 7 p.m. classes are made available for all age groupings.  Pastor McClure is presently leading a Bible study called, "Developing A Spiritual Strategy." It is partially based on a book by Tony Evans 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).

Roy Exum: The Readers Are Right

It is hardly a secret that since I have become intensely interested in public education in Chattanooga, I have tried to read, research and understand how our efforts have fallen horribly short in the last 15 years. We agree we have a crisis on many fronts and I hope it is equally obvious I am desperate for solutions. Much like school board member Karista Jones, I worry that we are ... (click for more)
