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 the worship service this morning.  Our prayer is that each of us is drawn closer to Jesus today.  My special thanks to Bryan Dobkins who is our special speaker this morning.  If you are a first-time guest, please visit the Welcome Center – we have a gift bag for you.  Please fill out a guest card and give it to me afterward.  We promise not to put you on a mailing list (but I will send you a letter thanking you for your visit).

Eight of our ladies are heading to Costa Rica in two weeks to minister to 24 Costa Rican pastors’ wives at a weekend retreat for them.  The ladies have set up a table in the foyer and we’ll be sharing more information at the beginning of the worship service about how each one of us can play a role as partners in this ministry.  I encourage you stop by the table and learn more today.

Are you new to Dayton Avenue and interested in what we believe, how we are organized, and the various ministries we have?  Then you are invited to the New Member Info Luncheon after church next Sunday.  Please fill out the bulletin insert RSVP and place it in the offering today or hand it to one of the pastors. 

Welcome to Tim & Tammy, Elijah, Hannah and Samuel Abel who we welcomed back to our church family after having pastored Calvary Baptist Church in Washington Court House these past six years.  Also welcome to Jonathan & Angela, Micah, Shelby, Grace, Olivia, Noah, and William Carl who also joined our church family.  If you didn’t get a chance to personally welcome them last week, look for them and welcome them today.  I am so thankful for each of you. We are praying for you; may the Lord bless you this week.
