Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts,
to which indeed you were called in one body;
and be thankful.

~Colossians 3:15~

Welcome to worship this morning at Dayton Avenue.  We are so glad that you have joined us and we have been praying that Jesus will be lifted up, and as a result, each one of us will grow stronger in our walk of faith.

Are you new to Dayton Avenue and interested in learning more about what we believe and the ministries we have?  Then you are invited to the New Member Info Luncheon after church next Sunday.  Please fill out the bulletin insert RSVP and place it in the offering today.  We are planning another Baptism Celebration service soon.  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.  Every September we partner with hundreds of other churches in Ohio and receive a special missions offering to help start new churches in our state.  The insert in today’s bulletin highlights a few of those new church plants.

You can have your portrait taken for our new Church Family Pictorial Directory any Sunday between now and the end of September (just outside our main entrance).  We want you to be included if you consider Dayton Avenue to be your church home.  Some people have asked if we have a security plan here at Dayton Avenue.  The answer is yes: there are several of our folks who have the proper training and are serving as our eyes and ears each week.  Though we live in a safe community, we still want to protect each person God brings to our church – especially children – so that we can focus on worshiping.

Next Sunday we will observe the Lord’s Table during Morning Worship and at 6:00pm we will have a Town Hall meeting to hear a proposal from the Long Range Planning Committee and share some updates about what the Lord is doing.  We love you and are praying for you.
