Golden Valley Christian Church



            The people that lived during World War II, and the men who fought in it, are fewer and fewer each year.  With time, the memories of that terrible war, and the effects it had on our nation, are growing dimmer and dimmer.  So it was with the children of Israel, as their memories, of the exile in Egypt and the destruction of their nation, grew dimmer.  It was restored to be the nation Jesus was born in.  Because of another memory lapse, time repeated itself in the obliteration of that nation until 1948, when it was once again restored.  We can only pray our own nation will never have that kind of memory lapse.


            It was joy to have so many in our church service last Sunday.  We were happy to welcome a few visitors, but were saddened to have a number of our regular attendees absent, due to illness, etc.  Bro. Tim's message, taken from Matthew 19:16-27, was entitled "Guiding People to Jesus."  The rich young ruler wanted to know what he must do to have eternal life, and Jesus' answer left him sorrowing.  Our goal is to guide, admonish (put in mind), and teach the truth of God's words.


            The Bible challenge question: How did the Jews act when the Apostle Paul was preaching in Thessalonica? (Acts 17:5-9)


            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.
