The pride of man will be humbled
and the loftiness of men will be abased;
and the LORD alone will be exalted in that day.
Good morning and welcome to worship at Dayton Avenue; we are so glad you have come. It’s difficult to believe that August has already arrived and school is just around the corner. Our worship attendance begins to increase again this time of year, and if seating is crowded in the sanctuary, you will find room in our Back Worship Service in the Youth Room. There is a more relaxed atmosphere there that I think you will like (it’s also a great place to invite your friends who might be a little intimidated attending church). I encourage you to try it out.
August is also the month when our regular ministries resume after the summer break. AWANA and CREW will meet here at church Wednesday evenings beginning August 29th at 6:30. As a special feature for those kickoffs, the Mike Hagen Strength Team ministry will be here to do a special program starting at 7:00. Help us invite our community to this event – go to our church website for more information (www.daytonave.org).
Be prepared for the start of our Multiple Worship Hour Schedule on Sunday, August 19th. LifeGroups will be meeting both hours (from 9:30-10:30 and from 11:00-12:00) and room assignments will change. More information will be available for you next week.
Welcome to our new members who joined the last Sunday: Micah and Maggie Cooper (and sons Owen and Ian), and Ron and Faith Horn. If you didn’t get a chance to welcome them yet, seek them out today and do so. Please be praying for the Lord’s clear leading for our church in the search for a Senior Associate / Executive Pastor. We love you. We thank the Lord for you. We are here for you – please call on us, your pastors and deacons, anytime.
