But He knows the way that I take;
when He has tried me, I shall come out as gold
. ~Job 23:10~

Good morning and welcome to Dayton Avenue.  A special welcome to all Mothers today.  We thank the Lord for each one of you.  Many of you have plans to spend time with family and friends today which is why we do not have an evening service tonight.  We want you to relax and enjoy your time together on this special day.  We have a special gift (a little bag of chocolates) for every lady here today – you all deserve honor.  Today it is also our great joy as a church family to stand with parents who are publicly dedicating themselves and their children to the Lord (at the beginning of the 2nd service).

The May Young at Heart dinner is being moved from this Monday to next Monday, May 20th.  Next Sunday evening at 6:00 will be a special business meeting to share more information about the current situation with our summer building expansion project and the proposed way forward.   

Welcome to our new church family members who joined at the end of the 11:00 worship service last week: Mark and Cheryl Klimek, Chao and Huan Liu, and Ed, Heather, Vanessa, and Garrison Bellman.  If you didn’t get a chance to personally welcome them last week, look for them and welcome them today. 

To be forgiven and to know Jesus personally is the greatest gift we can possess… and share.  He has been so good to us, and we can corporately praise Him today with our voices and this coming week with our lives.  God bless you as you continue to grow strong in your faith day by day.  I love you and am praying for you this week.
