“As for God, His way is blameless; The word of the Lord is tested; He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him.” ~2nd Samuel 22:31~

Welcome to Dayton Avenue today.  I am so glad you are here to worship our Lord.  We never know from week to week who will be here on Sunday – things do come up unexpectedly sometimes – but I have been praying that God would especially bless everyone He has brought together here this morning. 

A special welcome to our college students who have begun to arrive back for the fall semester.  We have missed you!  We hope you all have a wonderful year.  If you have come to Dayton Ave for the first time today, we are glad you are here!  Make sure you stop by our Welcome Desk and get a loaf of bread (our welcome gift). 

As our students and regular church family come back from summer vacations and mission trips, we’ll be experiencing seating challenges again, especially in our 11:00am worship services.  We are asking for volunteers to adopt the 11:00am Livestream Service (in the youth room) in order to make more seats available in the sanctuary service.  We’ve upgraded the sound system and enhanced the seating & lighting for you there!  Check it out.

We are planning another Baptism Celebration soon.  If you have trusted Jesus Christ for salvation and want to publically proclaim your faith in baptism, please talk with me or any of our pastors soon.  Awana begins again in just 2 ½ weeks and we need more faithful adult workers to help our children grow strong in their faith.  If you are willing to serve the Lord in this way, speak with Pastor Robert. 

Joanna and Sparrow Ehlers and Seth Licklider joined our church last Sunday.  Give them a welcome today if you haven’t done so already.  We are praying for you and thank the Lord for allowing us to serve Him together with you.  Don’t hesitate to call on us this week.
