Golden Valley Christian Church



Sin is a word used so much in the religious world that sometimes people get confused about this term. It is truly a simple thing. Simply, sin is doing things that God does not want you to do, or not doing things he wants you to do. The majority of us know when we are doing things that are wrong, things we have been taught from childhood that we should not do. We should not lie, steal, cheat, or be cruel to others. But God has a few more demands that we should or should not do. The only way to know these rules is to read the Bible. Each demand is attainable, but because of the nature of mankind, we often resist. If we look at God's rules, we will see they are all designed to enrich our lives. Please think about that.


There are many activities going on at the Golden Valley Christian Church this fall. Our ladies' Bible study continues on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 PM; the men's study is at 8:00 AM, on Saturday mornings; our youth meet at 6:00 PM, on Sunday evenings. All events are held at the GVCC church building. A wiener roast is also being planned. You are welcome to attend any of these events.


Have you ever asked God, "What do you want?" Are we so busy asking God for things that we want, we forget God wants some things from us. That was the theme of the message Bro. Tim delivered last Sunday. Taking scripture from chapter 6 of Micah, we learned God wants us to act justly, in fairness, honesty, and integrity. God wants us to love mercy--not only to give it, but to love it. Jesus gave many examples in the scriptures of His mercy to others. We are to imitate Jesus' example. God also wants His people to walk humbly with Him.
