“I was glad when they said to me, ‘Let us go to the house of the LORD.’” Psalm 122:1
Welcome to worship at Dayton Avenue. What a wonderful blessing it is to worship the Lord together today. At the end of the 2nd service, we will be celebrating the baptism of Abigail Matthews, Jacob Winter, and Michelle Brakeall.
Our church is a beehive of ministry and activity, and communicating those opportunities with you is a challenge. Because of limited time in our worship service, we do not usually make announcements from the platform. So, every year about this time I take a morning service to give a Pastor’s Perspective to catch us all up on the exciting things God is doing in our church, which is what is in store today. (Listen HERE)
We are also working on ways to improve getting important information to you. This weekly bulletin is one of the main ways, as is our church website (we are almost ready to rollout a website refresh), our church Facebook and Twitter feeds, and several other avenues that we are working on as well. But communication is two-way, so be sure to keep these sources handy and call into the church office if you have any questions.
Some of what I will share in my Pastor’s Perspective this morning will be discussed further in some Town Hall meetings. I encourage you to attend and participate in these meetings as we seek the Lord’s leading together as a church body. Those will take place this evening and next Sunday evening at 6:00pm. Please plan to attend.
Our condolences and prayers are with the families of those who have said goodbye (here on earth) to loved ones in recent weeks. Thank you for the way you minister to one another – it is so important. We love each of you and are praying for you this week.
