“Heaven and earth shall pass away,
but My words shall not pass away.”

~Matthew 24:35~

Welcome to worship this morning at Dayton Avenue, and a special welcome back to our college students.  Our Double Worship Hour schedule begins today which means that we have to learn some new routines for worship and LifeGroups.  The Welcome Desk just outside the sanctuary is the place to start for all of our guests; and our pastors, greeters, and ushers are also ready to help you. Even though we have identical worship services at 9:30 and 11:00, seating is always more challenging in the sanctuary at 11:00.  Why not try out our Back Worship Service in the Youth Room which is also available at that time?

We also welcome special guest speaker Greg Dyson and his family with us today.  Greg is Cedarville University’s Director of Intercultural Leadership.  I know we will be encouraged!

AWANA and CREW begin meeting here at church Wednesday evenings beginning August 29th at 6:30, and we still need workers.  Please contact the pastors or church office if you can help.  The Mike Hagen Strength Team ministry will be here to do a special program starting at 7:00 that same night.  Go to our church website for more information (

We are compiling a new Church Family Pictorial DirectoryYou do not have to be a member to participate – if you have been attending Dayton Avenue and feel this is your church home, we want you to be included.  Update your information and submit your own recent photo or have your portrait taken any Sunday between now and the end of September (just outside our main entrance).

Thank you for all your expressions of love and care to us these past weeks.  Though I am far away this morning (on a mission trip in Costa Rica), my heart and my prayers are with you.  God bless you.
