You love Him even though you have never seen Him. Though you do not see Him now, you trust Him; and you rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy. ~1st Peter 1:8~

Welcome to worship at Dayton Avenue today.  Though God is everywhere-present – not limited by time or space – He inhabits the worship of His people gathered together in His name.  May we all experience His smile upon us in this place today through praising Him and studying His Word.

Did you know we have a small Children’s Library of books and dvds located on the shelves below the church family mailboxes?  We use an honor check-out system; take what you want and bring it back when you are done.  The Adult Library resources are located on the shelves by the triple-doors in the back wing of the building.  If you do not have a mailbox yet, please call the church office this week and we will set one up for you.

Our growing church ministry means that we need to expand our Deacon Committee. Per our church bylaws, any member may nominate a deacon candidate. In addition to asking the person before you make the nomination (!), there are guidelines specified in our constitution. You can read that on our church website under the About Us tab in the What We Believe section. Nominations will close on Sunday, March 22nd. Thank you.

Next Sunday evening, Bill Babione will be equipping us in The Art of Conversational Evangelism.  I am personally excited to learn from Bill, and I encourage each of you to join the series.  The Avenue Kids’ Choir starts up again next Sunday evening at 6, too! If you are ready to take the important step of baptism to declare your faith in Jesus, please speak with Pastor Jon to be included in the upcoming Baptism Celebration. I hope to see you at the Service Auction this evening!  May the Lord bless you this week
