Golden Valley Christian Church



            The name of Dr. Ernest Sachs may not mean much to you, but for a number of people, it is a very important name.  Dr. Sachs spent many years studying an illness that was nearly always fatal.  He spent time in Germany and England with some of Europe's most renowned surgeons.  Returning to America, he fought obstacles, discouragement, and ridicule in his urge to succeed.  Today, largely because of this man, many malignant brain tumors can be cured.  If Christians could just use this type of determination and will power, our church pews would be full.


            Sunday was an all-around wonderful day at Golden Valley Christian Church.  God blessed us with a refreshing rain and great weather.  Two of our faithful came forward to place membership in GVCC.  A trio of Ken and Marla Jones and their daughter, Meredith Sien, sang a beautiful medley of patriotic songs.  In the morning message, "Why America is Great," Bro. Tim recalled important facts about the brave men that signed our Declaration of Independence.  Religion was an important part of the lives of these men.  If you read Isaiah 33:22, you will see where and how our founding fathers were influenced in establishing the three branches (executive, legislative, and judicial) of our government.  America is a "Great Nation" because we have honored God.  If we continue to bless God, God will continue to bless America.


            The Bible challenge question is:  "Who fed one hundred men with twenty loaves of barley bread?'"  (II Kings 4:42-44)


            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.
