“Whatever you do, do your work heartily,
as for the Lord rather than for men….
It is the Lord Christ whom you serve.”

~ Colossians 3:23–24 ~

Good morning and welcome to Dayton Avenue Baptist Church.  If you are a first-time guest, I hope you received a little loaf of homemade bread and gift bag as you were greeted on the way in (if not, be sure to get one on the way out!).  We have been praying for the Joy of the Lord to fill this place today.  Each of us has a part in that happening: by our singing to each other, our thoughts, our words of encouragement to each other, and even our smiles.  Thank you for coming and actively, joyfully worshiping today.

November.  Already!  These next two months are filled with special services and opportunities.  We’ve created a special flyer/insert that you can tape to your refrigerator, but please take time to read through your bulletin each week, too.  Updated information is also available on our church website,

Next Sunday Evening at 6:00pm is our annual budget preview business meeting.  We encourage you to be a part of the process and ask questions, too.  We’ll also present some other recommendations for electing committee members.   It’s not too late to nominate someone you know for a Thanksgiving food basket.  You can also help our youth assemble and deliver the baskets on Saturday November 18th, or you can give a special gift to our benevolence fund for this (and other) holiday season needs.

Last Sunday, Chloe Vann, Kelsey Howell, Megan Jacobs, and Brooke Hieronymus joined our church under Watchcare membership.  If you have been attending Dayton Avenue and are interested in learning more about becoming a member, turn in the RSVP bulletin insert for the Membership Information Luncheon which will take place next Sunday after the morning worship service.

We love each of you and thank the Lord for you.
