Welcome

Our Vision: To see communities turned upside down through the next step of obedience.

We are so glad you stopped by!  In today’s world “church” is many things.  Our aim is to be the Church as Christ intended: imperfect people loving imperfect people.  We want to welcome those who enter our doors, for the first time or for the 100th time, to feel accepted and loved.  We want to reach out and make a difference in our community.  We want to do life together as a family – working through any difficulties that may arise, being an example of what love really is.  And we want you to be a part of that!

Take some time to look around.  Please make sure to contact us for any questions – we will be happy to answer.

Welcome

We are so glad you decided to find out more about Dayton First Church of God.  We hope you will take the time to look around.  Be sure to contact us if you have any questions.

What to Expect

At Dayton First Church of God, we have a “Come as You Are” attitude.  No expectations and no requirements for stepping through the front door.  Each week we have greeters at both entrances.  If you have any questions or need any help, let them know and they will be happy to assist you.  Find out more about what we believe here.

Common Questions

  What should I wear?  Whatever you are comfortable in.  Casual or dressy – there is usually a mix!

  What will the music be like?  This is also usually a mix.  We favor contemporary music but also throw in traditional hymns to celebrate our history and where we came from.

  Is there anything for my kids? Yes!  We start our worship service with everyone together so that kids can learn and grow as we worship together.  After singing, prayer, and our offering time, the pastor will read a Bible story to the kids.  Then they are dismissed for class time during the message.

  How long is the service? Our  service lasts approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Sermons & More

The Word of the Kingdom – Part 2 (9-30)

But each person is tempted when he is lured (carried/drawn) away and enticed by his own desire. – James 1:14

Are the “good” things you are doing keeping you from the “best” things in life?

Other things come before God and His Church, before the lost, hell-bound soul of their neighbor…

Prayer: GI or GQ (9-23)

We often go to prayer with these attitudes: that it has to be perfect, that the prayer must sound good.
When we go to prayer with this attitude we go, metaphorically, like I’m dressed.
We go pretending like we are ready for war yet a part of us finds it necessary to think of what others think of our prayer or it not sounding pretty enough
