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.

I’m New

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

He Sees You: When Jesus Enters In

He sees you…
He sees the mother who barely sleeps, who feels like all she does is meet the needs of others – from changing diapers, to preparing meals, to running errands. He knows how empty you feel some days..
He see the mother who works so hard throughout the day and comes home with a smile for her family. He knows how torn you feel between two worlds.
He sees the grandmother who has set aside the life she was living to watch her grandchildren. He knows the sacrifice that was.
He sees the woman who has struggled for years to have children…
He sees the parent who lost a child too soon…
He sees the father who works 50+ hours a week to provide wondering if someday you will be able to live beyond paycheck to paycheck as you empty the savings account for a car repair. He knows it keeps you awake some nights.

Placemaking & Bridge Building

God is going to ask us to do things that, to us, seem difficult if not impossible. He is asking us to go where we cannot see.  He is going to take us places we have never been, ask us to do things we have never done nor know how to do.

And until we are willing to take that Next Step of Faith, in obedience, we will never accomplish what God wants us to do, go where God wants us to go or see what God wants us to see.
