“Walk in love, just as Christ also loved you
and gave Himself up for us, an offering and
a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma.” ~Ephesians 5:2~

Good morning and welcome to worhip at Dayton Avenue.  God is worthy of all our praise and we are glad that you are here. Whether you are a first-time guest or a long-time family member, we pray that you are drawn closer to Jesus today. 

Today is a busy day with the Ministry Fair in the morning and the premier showing of the new The Pilgrim’s Progress film this evening.  Before, between, and after our morning worship services you’ll be able to explore info booths for all of the LifeGroups and various ministries you can join and/or serve in.  Be sure to use your Ministry Fair card as you visit the tables in order to be part of the prize drawings.  Come back this evening for the film and 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!

This Wednesday evening at 6:00 is our monthly OutPour event and I want to encourage you to come and be a part of our Easter outreach ministries.  Supper is provided free!  We are planning a Baptism Celebration Palm Sunday, April 14th.  If you have placed your faith in Jesus and want to publically testify through baptism that you belong to Him, please let a pastor know so that you can be included.  The new pictorial church directory is coming soon, but you can still have your portrait taken – that happens on Palm Sunday morning as well.  Finally, we’ll have a Wall-Breaking celebration that morning as we begin our summer expansion/building project!

Cary and Shelly Honnold (and their family Jacob, William, and Kayleah) joined our church a few weeks ago. Welcome them this morning if you haven’t done so already. A film crew is here this morning making a new welcome video for our website.  May the Lord bless you this week as you live for Him.  We are praying for you.
