“But by the grace of God I am what I am, and
His grace toward me did not prove vain…” ~1 Corinthians 15:10a~

Welcome to Dayton Avenue Baptist Church.  If you are a first-time guest, we hope that you experience the love of the Lord and are drawn closer to Him.  If you are a regular Dayton Ave family member, we pray that you are encouraged and strengthened in your walk of faith.  A special welcome to the Salley family – our missionaries in Costa Rica.  Our ladies team will be sharing about their summer mission trip in the service today.

Last Sunday you sent in more sermon text questions than I could answer, so I wrote out responses and posted them to our church website (in the “this Week with Pastor Jon” section). I will try to leave some time at the end of the message again today.  Text your questions to 937 347 3182 (use all 10 numbers).

Today is the last Sunday left for the Ray Roberts Mission Offering.  Along with our sister churches in Ohio we are helping to plant new churches and strengthen existing ministries here at home.  Thank you for praying and sharing in this special offering.  Next Sunday afternoon from 4-6 will be our annual Community Harvest Festival.  Use the postcard in this bulletin to invite and bring your friends and neighbors.  We need your help to prepare all of the registration packets tonight at the OutPour dinner at 6:00.  We’ll be serving sloppy joes & sides and then hear from some outreach ministries happening within our church family here in Xenia.

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 this week as you continue to grow strong in your faith day by day.
