Through Him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice
in the hope of the glory of God.

~Romans 5:2~

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

This afternoon’s Festival (from 4:00 to 6:00 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 meet new people tonight as we reach out with the love of Jesus to them in many tangible ways.

Last Sunday evening we voted to proceed with the Master Site Plan concept and earmarked money to begin the detailed plans and proposals for the 1st Phase of that project!  Some of the concept drawings are posted just outside the church office door, and also on the “This Week with Pastor Jon” section of our church website.  I will share a little more about this from the platform this morning.

Thank you to all who gave to the special Ohio Missions Offering last month – over $3,500 was given!  Portrait opportunities for the new Church Family Pictorial Directory have ended, but you can still submit photos to be included (email your high resolution photo to info@daytonave.org).  If you have placed your faith in Jesus and want to publicly testify through baptism that you belong to Him, please let a pastor know so that you can be included in the Baptism Celebration which is planned for November 4th.

Welcome to Elena Hein who joined our church last Sunday.  May God shine His face upon you this week as you live for Him.
