“God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed.” ~2nd Corinthians 9:8~

Welcome to Dayton Avenue – we are glad that you have chosen to worship with us.  Our prayer is that each of us is drawn closer to our Savior today, our faith is strengthened, and the Lord is lifted high. 

If all goes according to plan Sarah and I are back in church with you today, but I am actually writing this just hours before we leave for Israel knowing that there won’t be time for me to do so while I’m there or traveling home.  We are excited beyond words to be going to the Holy Land, and we anticipate we’ll be different people when we come back.  What won’t change, though, is our love for each of you and our joy in serving you and serving the Lord with you.

The premier showing of the new Pilgrim’s Progress film is next Sunday evening March 31st from 5:00-7:30, here at church.  You don’t actually need a ticket to attend, but we’ve printed some so you can use them to invite your friends and family (available at the Welcome Desk and Children’s Check-In). There will be free popcorn, and if you bring someone who doesn’t have a church home, we’ll also give you a voucher for free ice cream after the film!  Next Sunday morning is also the Ministry Fair.  Before, between, and after our worship services you’ll be able to explore all the LifeGroups and various ministries you can join and/or serve in. 

A film crew will be here this Wednesday evening and next Sunday morning making a new welcome video for our website.  We are also   providing one more picture-taking opportunity for you to be included in a new pictorial church directory.  May the Lord bless you this week as you live for Him.  We are praying for you.
