Lovingkindness and truth have met together; Righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
Welcome to Dayton Avenue this morning. God is worthy of all our praise and we are glad that you have come to worship with us. May we all be drawn closer to Jesus today.
This Wednesday evening is our first OutPour evening. It begins at 6:00pm with a carry-in supper, followed by a time of testimonies and instructions, then prayer before heading out to serve. I rarely twist your arm for things like this, and I avoid laying a guilt trip on you, but I am asking you to please come and participate. The Lord has laid this before us, and we need to respond as we are able. For more details about what OutPour is, go to our church website (daytonave.org), click on the Media tab, then on Audio, and listen to the OutPour Kickoff recording.
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.
The dean at my old university told a story he called the “Flying Fifty.” When he was a young man and a brand new Navy recruit, he was marched into a room and given a crisp $50 bill – his first Navy pay. He then proceeded to the next table where a clerk took the fifty and gave him some change (to pay for haircuts). At the next table, more money was taken for toiletries, and so on. At the end of the line of tables, he had two bucks left. The fifty had flown!
Money isn’t the only thing that flies – so does time. We have come to the beginning of June already! With God in our lives, time can be redeemed and made valuable. We love you and are here to help, so don’t hesitate to call on us this week.
