I will sing to the LORD, because
He has dealt bountifully with me. ~Psalm 13:6~

Welcome!  That word has special meaning because of the love that God has showered on us through His Son, Jesus Christ.  May the welcomes we extend and receive truly reflect Him today.

Today is the final day for the Annie Armstrong Easter Missions Offering that supports missions in North America, and we have almost reached our goal ($7,000).  The line between domestic and foreign missions is fuzzy because the nations are coming to our shores and to our communities.  People from all over the world visit our church website and listen to the messages every week. Many in our church family have already gone or are going on mission trips this year (this summer we’ll be serving in England, Germany, Togo, Mali, Dominican Republic, China, and Costa Rica!).  Thank you for supporting all these different mission endeavors through your generous giving.

Many of our college students will be leaving us this week after finals.  We love you and are so thankful that you have made us your church family.  We want to recognize all who are graduating (with any college degree) at the beginning of worship at both 9:30 and 11:00 this morning – we wish the Lord’s best for each of you.

This Thursday is the National Day of Prayer.  Many of you will be participating in various prayer events around our community.  Looking ahead, Sunday May 12th is Mother’s Day and our Child Dedication service, and Saturday May 18th is the WALK 4 LIFE event here in Xenia.  Our church helps sponsor this event in support of the great work being done by Miami Valley Women’s Center in our community. 

It’s a great privilege to celebrate the baptism of Molly Henderson, Bethany Leipold, and Nicia Pollock, this morning at the end of the 11:00am Worship Service.  We love you and we are here for you.
