Golden Valley Christian Church


            What a busy time most people, including the Golden Valley Christian Church, had last week!  Last Friday we had a joyous occasion when Sarah Church and Dale Lara II exchanged wedding vows, before a large crowd, in our church building.  Our contribution to the Olde Glory Days parade was a decorated golf cart driven by our minister, Tim Randall, and accompanied by his wife, Georgia.  Thanks to Jerry Harris for providing his golf cart.  God blessed us with a number of visitors at our Sunday morning services, some coming from as far away as Texas.  We welcome all of our visitors, and extend a warm invitation to each of you to visit us.  This Saturday, July 7, we invite the community to our church at 11 AM for free hot dogs and a special activity for the children; this is our VBS kick-off event.


            In our morning service, Mary Tuggle read two articles:  One was in celebration of our nation's birthday, and the other was a humorous article entitled "Life Begins at Eighty."  Bro. Tim's message was entitled "The Three R's," which stand for reading, writing, and religion.  A recent survey showed that one-half of all Christians read their Bible less than two or three times a week.  Reading the Bible puts God's word in our mind, allowing us to meditate on it as our spiritual growth strengthens.  Bro. Tim suggested we keep a spiritual journal, writing the events of the day, plus our inner thoughts; this allows self-evaluation and is a mirror for the soul.


            The Bible challenge question is:  "What did Obadiah, the governor of Ahab's palace, do that was so courageous?" (I Kings 18:13)


            The Golden Valley Christian Church meets at 611 South Third Street.  Our Sunday Bible classes begin at 9:30 AM, morning worship is at 10:30 AM, and evening study is at 6:00 PM.  Our full-time minister is Bro. Tim Randall (office phone # 660-890-0252), and our website is goldenvalleycc.org.  We are happy to invite you to attend our services, where you will always receive a warm welcome.
