Golden Valley Christian Church


            A church had four people with the last names of Everybody, Somebody, Nobody, and Anybody.  These four people were asked to do an important task for the church.  Everybody thought Somebody would do it, but Nobody even thought about it.  Somebody got upset because it was Everybody’s job.  Everybody thought Anybody could do it, when Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it.  In the end, Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.  It’s sad to think what truth can be found in a silly little fictitious story.  An old adage says 10 percent of the people in a church do 90 percent of the work.  There are many jobs to do in a church, all the way from teaching and worship services, to keeping the grounds and building in shape.  There are lots of jobs needing to be done. (Mark 10:45)

            Last Sunday, we enjoyed a carry-in lunch, with our thanks to all that help; there are some super good cooks in GVCC!  Our thanks also go to David Harrison for singing a beautiful song of praise, “How Great Thou Art.”  It is such a pleasure to have our fellow Christians share their talent with us.  Next Sunday, August 28th, will be special when our young people will be leading our worship service.  Another date to put on the calendar is September 11, which will be the start of our youth group meetings; all youth, grades 6-12, are invited to attend.

            Bro James’ message came from John 2:1-11.  The miracle of turning water into wine, at a wedding at Cana in Galilee, is only found in the book of John.  Jesus performed many miracles, and this was the first one He performed.  Apparently, there had not been enough wine ordered for this long wedding celebration.  Jesus’ mother had some knowledge of this and told her Son of this dilemma.  It seems Jesus was not ready to reveal His glory, but He ordered six stone jars to be filled with water, and then told the servants to take some to the master of the banquet.  When tasted, it shocked the master, because it was far superior to the previous wine.  It was through miracles that Jesus showed His extraordinary powers, and it was here that His disciples put their faith in Him (John 2:11).

            Golden Valley Christian Church meets at 611 South Third Street in Clinton.  Sunday School classes begin at 9:30 AM, and the morning worship service is at 10:30.  Our Wednesday evening Bible study is suspended for the summer.  Our minister is James McFarland (office phone # 660-890-0252), and our website is www.goldenvalleycc.org, where you will also find a link to access our Facebook page.  We are happy to invite you to attend our services, where you will always receive a warm welcome.
