“We have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.”
~1st John 4:14~

Welcome to Dayton Avenue this morning.  Our prayer is that you will be strengthened in your faith and drawn closer to our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Each year at Christmas, we receive a special offering for international missions, referred to as the Lottie Moon offering.  We will be highlighting videos of what God is doing in the lives of people through our giving.  God is using us all to accomplish things that are much bigger than what we could imagine.  There is no overhead involved with the Lottie Moon offering – 100% of what we give gets to the missionaries on the field.  I encourage you to join me in giving.

It’s wintertime!  We occasionally have to cancel church: Level 3 snow emergencies mean we must cancel; Level 2s are likely cancellations. Check our Facebook (Dayton Avenue Baptist Church), our website (www.daytonave.org), or tune into channel 2 or 7 for cancellation notices.  As always, exercise wisdom in deciding whether or not to stay home, and remember, our Sunday morning services are live-streamed at 11:00 – go to our website and click the banner.

We begin our Single Worship holiday schedule on the 15th which is the day of our Children’s Christmas Program.  That also means our LifeGroups all meet at 9:30, so expect some room changes.  That evening will be the budget adoption year-end business meeting followed by the Dessert Reception for Pastor Caleb and Julia.

If you didn’t get a chance to sign the Covenant Parchment last Sunday, you can do so today at the Welcome Desk!  I pray that God draws us all closer to Himself throughout this Christmas season. We love you and are here for you.  It is a joy and an honor to serve our Lord together with you.  May God bless you this week.
