Tuesday, January 7, 2014

Middle Valley Church of God, located at 1703 Thrasher Pike in Hixson, announces that Pastor Mitch McClure will speak on the topic, "Competency and Choices Lead To Responsible Members" in the 10:30 a.m. service on Sunday.  The sermon continues his latest sermon series on 'Moving Along Towards God'.   

The message will focus on the need for church members, as a part of their stewardship, must be competent with the gifts given to them by God.  It also will focus on the need for members to choose to use the gifts given to them by the Lord.  When members are competent in using their gifts, the church will be what God intends it to be.
