The Last Word…

Did You Know?

  • If you miss a Sunday, you can listen to last week’s sermon online with the push of a button on our website – All you need is a computer with a speaker and an internet connection. Older sermons are also archived on the site.
  • Our youth groups spend part of their time in worship every Sunday night. Our CYF (high school) finish their evening with a time of worship in the chapel. Our Chi Rho (Jr. High) spends about 20 minutes every week on the chancel in the sanctuary in a worship service that includes prayers, discussion of scripture and communion.
  • Our Elders lead worship once a month at Oak Creek and Walnut Creek Nursing homes. Libby Burnett plays piano and our elders bring a message and serve communion. As Disciples of Christ, we are one of the few churches that celebrate the Lord’s Supper with nursing home residents. This past week a dozen of our youth provided special music and assisted with the prayers and serving communion.
  • Our Morning Watch service is a great alternative if you have Sunday plans. Because Morning Watch begins at 9 a.m. and typically finishes around 9:40 a.m., there is still a lot of day left for activities. Recently, one of our families had a reunion to attend and came to Morning Watch before leaving for the day.
  • Our Food Pantry and Outreach ministry helps multiple families from our community every week. Because of your ongoing support and generosity, people are receiving the assistance they need in these difficult times.
  • Our Prayer Shawl Ministry continues to knit prayer shawls every Thursday morning. Not only is this a wonderful time of fellowship, but it also provides a concrete way of expressing our love and care for those among our family and friends who are going through difficult times. Please see the display in the narthex and take one to someone you know who needs the warmth of God’s love.
  • We save money in postage every week when we send the weekly Messenger out via email. If you are not currently receiving the Messenger electronically, please let us know and we will sign you up. Also, there is also no waiting! The minute it is finished it will be waiting for you in your inbox.
  • We have a Young Adult Bible Study that meets at my house on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday every month (6:30 p.m. to 9:00ish). This group includes many young adults who grew up in our church and also some of our newest members. It also provides a place for fellowship, study and prayer for those who are not able to worship with us on Sunday mornings. This group has now expanded to include a game night on the first Friday of each month. Check out our Facebook page for updates@Dayton, Ohio Advance Conference Bible Study.
