The LORD’S mercies indeed never cease,
 for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.” ~Lamentations 3:22-23~

Good morning and welcome to Dayton Avenue Baptist Church.  We have been praying that the joy of the Lord will fill this place today and be our strength.

Max Lucado has written that the word reliable is made up of liable which means responsible, and the prefix re– which means over and over again.  If Jesus Christ should return for us this coming year, we want Him to find us reliable in living for Him.  He has been so faithful to us.  Take a moment this morning to thank Him silently for the ways He has blessed you.  While you are praying, ask Him to speak to all of us in a special way during our time together today.

A special thank you to Chuck Deglow, our special speaker this morning.  Chuck and Linda have recently moved back to our community after years of ministry in Florida.  Chuck was our interim pastor back in 2000 and lived through the tornado with us.  You’ll have to ask them to tell you their stories!   

Today is the last Sunday we will be receiving the 2019 Lottie Moon Christmas Missions Offering. Thank you for giving to this special effort to support thousands of international missionaries serving the Lord faithfully, many in very difficult places.

Proof copies of a new pictorial directory are on the welcome desk.  Please stop by and verify your information.  You may have to correct data or update your picture or even get added.  We hope to have it ready for distribution soon. To know Jesus personally is the greatest gift we can
possess… and share.  God bless you as you continue to live for Him day by day

Happy New Year! Pastor Jon
