“…all who were sick implored Him that they might
just touch the fringe of His cloak….” ~Matthew 14:35-36~

Welcome to the worship service this morning.  If you are a first-time guest, please stop at the Welcome Center and get a little loaf of homemade bread as well as a guest card.  We would greatly appreciate it if you fill out that card and place it in the offering.  We promise not to put you on a mailing list (but we’ll send you a letter thanking you for coming today). 

Sarah and I are en-route to Israel today, but our hearts and prayers are with you.  We can’t touch the hem of Jesus’ garment, but we are excited to walk where He walked!  Thank you to Dr. Dan Dewitt for ministering God’s Word this morning and to Ron and Ellen Calligan, our current missionaries-in-residence in our mission home, who will be sharing their ministry in this evening’s service.  I encourage you to come back tonight at 6:00 and hear how God is at work in Peru.

If you are interested in learning more about our church, you are invited to the New Member Info Luncheon after church on March 24th.  Meet our Pastors and their families and ask any questions you may have; no strings attached!  Just fill out the bulletin insert RSVP.

Last Sunday we voted overwhelmingly on the contractor for our facility expansion project this summer.  Lord willing, we will be having a ground- (and wall-) breaking celebration on Palm Sunday!  As I shared in the message last week, the Lord has enabled us to give generously to His work here at Dayton Avenue and around the world, and I am certain He will enable us to give generously to support this project too.  If God has enabled you to give a special gift, now is the time we need it!  Just mark your gift “Building.”  Thank you so much.

We are filming for a new welcome video on our website – crews will be here on Wednesday 3/27 and Sunday 3/31.  God bless you.
