"Learning How To Love" Series Continues Sunday At Middle Valley COG

Wednesday, July 18, 2018

Middle Valley Church of God, 1703 Thrasher Pike in Hixson, announces that Pastor Mitch McClure will speak on the topic, "Death Can Be Better Than Life" in the 10:30 a.m. service on Sunday.  This sermon is part of a series entitled, "Learning How to Live," which is based on the book of Ecclesiastes.  The writer, Solomon, was considered the wisest man who ever lived.  Queen Sheba of Egypt declared his great knowledge.  Solomon gives us the perspective of living life with death in view.  

Pastor Mitch McClure will lead the congregation in a time of worship and prayer on Sunday at 6:30 p.m.  Each Sunday at 9:30 a.m., Sunday school classes are available for all age groups.

Pastor Mitch McClure is leading an interactive Bible study based on John McTernans' book, "As America Has Done To Israel."  This interactive Bible study will be held each Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the Administrative classroom.  Pastor McClure said, "Israel was chosen by Jehovah God to be His people and gave them specific promises.  They exist today because of His promised covenant.  Israel must be blessed if we are to be blessed.  This will be one of our most interesting and eye-opening studies.  We'd love to have many attend and participate." 

"Middle Valley Church of God has been involved in community from the same location since 1946 and continues to partner with many local organizations.  The church also is involved in multiple ministries in Cusuna, Honduras with orphans and widows," officials said.

All services are open to the public and everyone is welcome to participate.

For additional information, contact Pastor Mitch McClure at the church office, 423-843-1539.

Make One Of The Proposed Surplus City Buildings Into A Local History Museum - And Response

In the meantime, valuable artifacts and collections are sitting in cellars, basements and storage facilities instead of being ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: No Cell Phones Allowed

There was a time, not so long ago, when school-aged children would learn lessons from a prescribed text, such as a textbook. Today texting is far, far different and, as any of our teachers will tell us, cell phones have become the scourge of education. In almost every classroom, kids will silently text in the shadow of the desk in front of them rather than focus on the lesson. Yet ... (click for more)
