Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
nor the heart of man imagined, all that God has prepared for those who love Him.

~1st Corinthians 2:9~

Welcome to Dayton Avenue this morning – we are glad you have come to worship today.  In Romans 4:20, Abraham is described as “growing strong in faith and giving glory to God.”  What a great statement: I hope that is true in all our lives today, too.

Last Sunday evening at the Town Hall meeting, we presented a Master Site Plan from the Long Range Planning Committee.  If you were not there, you can watch the video on our website ( and view the drawings posted on the wall just outside our church office door.  There will be a Business Meeting September 30th at 6:00pm to vote on adopting the Plan and moving forward in phases.

Thank you for your generosity to our special Missions Offering supporting church planting and camp ministries here in Ohio.  You can still give to this special offering today and next week.  Sunday October 7th is our Community Harvest Festival!  This is a great outreach event for our community and we need your help inviting your neighbors to come and then serving that night.  I’ll be sharing more about this with you this morning from the platform.

You can have your portrait taken for our new Church Family Pictorial Directory just outside our main entrance today and next Sunday.  We want you to be included if you consider Dayton Avenue to be your church home.  If you have placed your faith in Jesus and want to publicly testify through baptism that you belong to Him, please let one of the pastors know so that you can be included in the next Baptism Celebration.

Lucas and Jenn Zellers joined our church last Sunday.  If you didn’t get a chance to welcome them yet, look for them and do so today.  We love you and are praying for you.  May God bless you as you live for Him.  Don’t hesitate to call on us pastors this week.
