Golden Valley Christian Church



            It is sometimes surprising where you will find true faith.  For example, have you read the story of Rahab?  She was a prostitute in Jericho, a lady of low morals.  Yet, she believed in the one true God and had the faith and courage to hide the Israelite spies, saving her life and those of her family.  Did you know that Rahab was the great-great grandmother of King David, and an ancestor of Jesus (Matt 1:5-6)?  Read of Rahab's faith in the second chapter of Joshua.


            I John is the subject of the study groups, meeting on Tuesday afternoons and Wednesday evenings; call the church office for more information if you would like to join one of these groups. 


            Georgia, JoAnn, and Tammi did a great job supervising our carry-in dinner Sunday.  Thank you so much, ladies!  If anyone left the church hungry, it was their own fault.  Georgia Randall led our worship service in the absence of our regular worship leader, Ken Jones.  She also sang a beautiful special, "How Deep the Father's Love for Us."  Bro. Tim's message came from I John 4:1-12.  These verses tell us how we can recognize the Spirit of God who acknowledges that Jesus, in the flesh, is from God.  They also point out that God is love and since God loves us, we should love one another.  Bro. Tim's question to us was, "Do you know a Christian when you see one?"  If we look to Jesus as our example, doing his will, people will know we are Christians.


            The Bible challenge question is:  "Which prophet exposed the affair of David and Bathsheba?'"  (II Samuel 12:1-10)


            The Golden Valley Christian Church meets at 611 South Third Street in Clinton.  Our Sunday Bible classes begin at 9:30 AM, and morning worship is at 10:30 AM.  Our full-time minister is Bro. 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.
