What happens on a Saturday?

At Dayton's Church, you will experience friendly people, classical worship that features traditional hymns and songs of praise, and practical, Bible-based messages. The 9:30 am "Sabbath School" Bible study lasts approximately one hour and ten minutes. The second "divine hour" service lasts about one hour and thirty minutes. Also, we do not expect our visitors to give, so feel free to let the offering plate pass by when it comes down your row. Our services are organized so that anyone who is seeking for truth can meet Christ in an environment that is exhilarating yet reverent and alive with the unity, faith, and conviction of God's presence.

What should I wear?

Our congregation spans a range of ages and backgrounds. Most people dress formally, but you will see people in the pews dressed in all styles—from jeans to business suits. We're a church for people from all walks of life. Please wear whatever is most comfortable for you.

Will I fit in?

When you visit, you won't be met with shame, guilt, or condemnation. We are real people who are trying to let God fulfill His dream in each of our lives.

Who are the church leaders?

As pastor and church leaders, we are here to connect with you, care for you, and help you develop your relationship with Jesus Christ. That means being available to listen to, talk with, pray for, and worship beside you. It means guiding those who seek truth and transformation to the One who freely gives those things. And it means being present to meet the spiritual needs of people wherever they are—whether in church, homes, hospital beds, prison cells, office buildings, coffee houses, or on the streets.

What does Dayton's Church believe?

Since it is our mission is "to make disciples for Christ," we dig deep into God's Word and share the gospel with others. We are committed to helping people find life's hope and guidance in a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and to grow and mature together in Him.
