Those who know Your name will put their trust
in You, for You, O L
ORD, have not forsaken
those who seek You.

~ Psalm 9:10 ~

Welcome to worship at Dayton Avenue this morning.  Things may seem a bit hectic this morning with all of the preparations for the Community Fall Festival later today, but we are praying that our time in worship will restore our souls.

This afternoon’s Festival (from 4:30 to 6:30 pm) is designed for you, our church family, as well as for our neighbors, so please come and enjoy the music, games, horse rides, hayrides, magic show, food, face-painting, and much more!  And it is all free!!  Invite and bring your friends and neighbors, help with the event as much as you can, and come and meet new people tonight as we reach out with the love of Jesus to them in many tangible ways.

Welcome to new members Drew and Chelsea Perkins and Hannah Petelin who joined last Sunday.  Please meet and welcome them today if you haven’t already.  As new college students join under our watchcare member program, this is a good time to explain our Adopt-a-College-Student ministry.  The level of involvement varies, but at the minimum it includes regularly praying for your student(s) and encouraging them at church and via email/text/FB.  Many adopters use their homes as a place for students to have a home-cooked meal, hang out, or even have parents stay when in town visiting their student.  We aren’t exactly sure how many new Adopters we’ll need, but if you are interested in this ministry, please call into the office this week.  And thank you to the many folks who are already ministering to our college students.

Sarah and I have moved into our new home (mostly!) and we want to thank all of you for praying for us during this transition (new address is 2652 Ridge Rd., Xenia). We love you and are here for you.
