Golden Valley Christian Church



            A church building is like a home, needing upkeep and renovation periodically.  The renovation continues at the Golden Valley Christian Church.  A new front door has been installed, and the previously paneled, interior walls are getting new insulation and sheet rock.  All of the hall carpet has been removed.  Remember, while the front entrance of our building is being renovated, please enter through the left door on the north side of the building.


            How many of us thank God for the many blessings we receive?  One tremendous blessing we should thank Him for, is that our area escaped the blizzard that hit the eastern United States last week.  Yet another blessing, the men's Saturday Bible study will resume on February 6th, at 8 AM, in the fellowship hall of the church building. 


            "If you don't grow through Christ, OTHERS will influence you, and you won't influence others for Christ."  This was the opening statement for Bro. Tim's message last Sunday.  With scripture from Ephesians 4:1-16, Bro. Tim elaborated on the "spiritual growth" God expects from His followers.  A Christian's goal is to be as nearly like Jesus as possible.


            The Bible challenge question: What word picture does the Apostle Paul use in regard to baptism? (Colossians 2:12) 


            Golden Valley Christian Church meets at 611 South Third Street in Clinton.  Sunday Bible classes begin at 9:30 AM; morning worship is at 10:30.  Our minister is Tim Randall (office phone #660-890-0252), and our website is www.goldenvalleycc.org.  We are happy to invite you to attend our services, where you will always receive a warm welcome.
