Golden Valley Christian Church



            The heat of summer has hit our area in full force.  According to the encyclopedia, the hottest days are the first part of August, even though the sun is at its strongest in June, at the summer solstice.  That is because heat has been stored in the ground, rocks, and lakes, keeping the air temperature higher in spite of the diminishing daily heat in August.  We wonder how our summer heat compares to Hell.


            The Golden Valley Christian Church enjoyed a carry-in meal last Sunday.  Our thanks go to Judy Harris and Paula Phillips for the wonderful job of coordinating the meal.   Last weekend, Bro. Tim surprised his wife, Georgia, with a short trip on their 40th wedding anniversary.  We, at GVCC, extend our congratulations to this great couple on such a milestone.


            In the absence of Bro. Tim, one of our own, Chris Rush, brought an excellent message.  Using a compass as a visual lesson, Chris reminded us that God's word is like a compass.  The magnetic field on a compass always points north.  God's word is like the needle of the compass, always pointing back to Him, giving us the spiritual food and shelter we need.  We are all walking on our life's journey, and we need to know where we are, and where we are going.  The Bible helps us with our spiritual walk.


            The Bible challenge question:  Who said of God, "His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom?" (Daniel 4:1-3)


            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.
