“Praise and thanksgiving do not magically change my circumstances.  They radically alter my viewpoint.  Praise and thanksgiving bring me back into the presence of God, where there is fullness of joy and pleasures evermore.” ~Jennifer Kennedy Dean

Welcome to Dayton Avenue Baptist Church.  The old Westminster Catechism states that “Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy Him forever.”  Let’s enjoy worshiping Him today!

At the end of the 11:00am worship service we will be praying over and commissioning the eight ladies heading to Costa Rica on mission this week.  Please pick up their prayer cards (if you haven’t already) and make a special effort to lift them up every day.  There’s still time for you to sponsor one of the Costa Rican pastor’s wives’ expenses: that information and other ways you can be a partner in this ministry is at their table in the foyer.

Several ladies in our church provide interpretation services for us each week.  Do you know someone who would be blessed by this ministry?  We’d love to see the Lord use it more.  Here’s another idea: stop right now and think of someone who is at home, unable to attend church today, then call/text them to join us this morning via our Livestream ministry at 11:00am.  They’ll need to go to our website, www.daytonave.org, and follow the directions there.

If you came through the main entrance this morning, you probably noticed the “Fresh Vegetables” table.  Many in our church family have gardens and like to share what they’ve grown.  Help yourself to what you see on that table in the weeks ahead, and if you are a gardener, feel free to share your surplus produce. 

It is a privilege to serve the Lord together and see all that He is doing in us and through us.  It’s also humbling to realize just how blessed we are.  Be encouraged that as we continue to seek Him and His strength, He will continue to use us for His glory.  We love you.
