Praise Him all His angels (…)
Praise Him sun and moon (…)
For He commanded and they were created.
Let them praise the name of the LORD.

~ Psalm 148 ~

Welcome to Dayton Avenue this morning.  We have the great privilege of corporately lifting our voices in praise to our great God today.  In the (…) sections of the verses quoted above, the psalmist expands his thoughts beyond just angels and heavenly objects to include all created beings joining in praise because the LORD’s name alone is worthy of exaltation.  We will also worship Him reflectively as we gather around the Lord’s Table in each service this morning (the elements are gluten-free).

Our new Grief Share ministry began this week, but it’s never too late to join in.  The material in each meeting is stand-alone, and the next meeting is February 8th.  Pick up a brochure (at the information table in the foyer) for all of the details.

Don’t forget to check your church mailbox regularly.  And while you are there, take advantage of the Children’s Library of books and dvds located on the shelves below the mailboxes.  We use an honor check out system – just 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.  By the way, if you do not have a mailbox yet (they are located in the hallway near the Children’s Ministry Welcome Counter), please call the church office this week and we will get you one.

We are planning another Baptism Celebration soon.  If you have received Jesus as your Savior and are ready to take this important step of obedience and identification as His follower, please let me know so you can be included.  God has been so good to us all, and it is amazing to see Him at work here at Dayton Avenue.  We love you, we’re praying for you, and we thank the Lord for you.
