The FBC Dayton Youth Group spent the weekend at the Strength to Stand Student Conference in the Great Smoky Mountains, January 13-16. During the weekend, they attended four conference sessions that included high-energy worship, great Christian speakers and amazing concerts by Casting Crowns and For King and Country. During their free time, our students got to visit the National Park and other sites in the area. This was an awesome weekend of great Christian fellowship and tons of fun for our entire group.
After a winter break, First Baptist Dayton’s Saturday contemporary worship service for the “Becomers” starts again on the first Saturday in March, and will be held on the first and third Saturdays at 6:30 p.m. Are you one of those people who never goes to church? You’ll be welcome here! Are you someone who works on Sunday or just don’t want to get up on Sunday morning? Here’s a worship service designed just for you! Do you want a more contemporary service? Come and check us out……You are invited to join us!
First Baptist Dayton will have a new Children’s Club starting the first Wednesday evening in May called TeamKID for kids in Grades 1-5. Watch for more information in upcoming issues.

Bringing It All Together
Every relationship has its ups and downs. It seems that at times, we all disagree with each other. But, it remains true that when we work in Unity by working together, so much can be accomplished.
Unity? What exactly is it? Unity is working together for the good of all and putting differences aside. Working together is the way to get things done, but so many things seem to get in the way; our differences with this one, our disagreements with that one. We may get one thing built up just to tear another thing down. It may seem that no one can agree on anything, and therefore nothing gets accomplished.
It is okay to have disagreements. We will never all agree at the same time. What we need to realize is that we are all on the same journey. If we work together, we will not fail. It is all of our jobs to keep the flock together. If one of our sheep begins to stray, we need to pull them back in. Together we are invincible! We need to look past our differences and disagreements and realize we are all working toward the same goals.
Think about eggs, flours, and butter eaten separately. Yuck! But if you mix these together, the outcome can be some mighty fine biscuits! Individually we aren’t much, but together we become a force to reckon with. We must be there for each other to make it work. We need to encourage each other, and have each other’s backs at home, work, school and church. We must be united as one family to get things done.
Be willing be work together, help others in need, ask for help, and together we make Dayton a great place to be for living, loving, playing, and worshipping. Join us Sunday Mornings 10:15 am
