"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.

Bob Tamasy: Hands, Heads Or Hearts

When you look at people, what do you see? Recently I heard a speaker suggest that our perceptions of people typically lump them into one of three categories: Hands, Heads, or Hearts.

The county schools will push forward with an equity effort that appeared to have been paused after board members Rhonda Thurman and Joe Smith in May said  they rejected the idea that county schools need to “racially and economically integrate.” An equity task force did not meet for several months and the schools did not move forward on hiring an outside consultant to help ...

Drink Up, Chattanooga

Roy Exum: Lee In A Landslide

The first time I met Bill Lee, the guy who is triggering a huge turnout of Tennessee voters across the state, I instantly liked him, admired him, and must have told a dozen friends that day we have the most exciting guy going to the Governor’s Mansion we’ve ever had. The best reason is because Bill Lee is real. His opponent, Karl Dean, is a Democrat and a longtime politician. Go ... (click for more)
