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. And get to know our staff and Elders a little bit better here.
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 short Bible story just for the kids. They are then dismissed for class (3 years old – 5th grade) for the remainder of service. More about those classes can be found here. If you have a child under the age of 3, we LOVE for them to be in service. We understand that infants and young toddlers will make noise, cry, move around, and more and that’s okay! We don’t mind at all. Jesus said to let the little children come and we wholeheartedly embrace that.
How long is the service? Our service lasts approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.
