“Teach us to number our days so that
we may present to You a heart of wisdom.” Psalm 90:12
Welcome to worship at Dayton Avenue this morning. I am glad that you have come, but, as strange as this may sound, I am glad that many of you didn’t come last Sunday during the winter weather. You exercised discernment – both in staying or coming… praise God there were no accidents or falls (that I know of). A special welcome today to Paul and Stephanie Cronin and their children David, Melissa, and Sara who joined our church last Sunday. If you weren’t here last Sunday, make sure you seek them out and give them a warm welcome today.
I’ll be talking a little more this morning about the 9-volt battery outreach to our community this coming Saturday, March 15th. Would you be willing to invest 3 hours of your day to be part of something that counts for eternity and demonstrates your faith in and obedience to Jesus? There is a short video giving more details that you can view on our church website http://www.daytonave.org or at http://youtu.be/DoCnNqEwAgs.
If you have been attending Dayton Avenue and are considering joining, please plan for the Membership Information Class at 4:30 on March 23rd. Dress informally and come with your questions. We’ll share information about what we believe and teach, you’ll get a chance to meet our pastoral team and other new attenders, and we’ll even feed you! NO RSVP needed and no arm-twisting to join!
Check your Mailboxes today for the latest Beam. If you don’t have a mailbox yet, please call in to the church office and we’ll get you one right away. Many in our church family have discovered that the mailboxes are a great way to encourage one another with notes (and save postage in the process). May God bless you richly this week.
