The famous stress researcher Hans Sayle claims that two attitudes more than any other influence the quality of everyday life, and on these two emotions “depend our peace of mind, our feelings of security or insecurity, of fulfillment or frustration, in short, the extent to which we can make success of life.”
The most destructive emotion is revenge. But in contrast, “among all the emotions, there is one which more than any other, accounts for the absence or presence of stress in human relations: that is the feeling of gratitude.”
In this confused and tumultuous world, marked by war, political division, social injustice and upheaval, bitter rivalries and moral failing, can you identify the things in your life for which you can be thankful? The more you can do precisely that, the more unlikely it is that you will be overcome by the stress and anxiety this life can cause.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” (Philippians 4:6-8)
It is impossible to be anxious and thankful at the same time.
May you choose the best thing.
With love, Pastor Scott

Wow, it’s November already, the trees are showing off their new colors and the leaves are beginning to decorate the ground. We are a busy club on Wednesday evenings. Our clubbers are busy learning, laughing, singing, and enjoying club. We’re in the season of Thanksgiving. With that said thank you to all who support our club thru prayer, encouragement, and faithfully showing up and helping the experience happen each week!
October was a busy month in the life of our club.
October 18 clubbers and leaders arrived eager to sport the self-generated hair styles and outfits in support of our theme “crazy hair/outfit night”. Having fun while Bible learning complete with prizes and yes, some interesting hair do’s and outfits.
the 25th kicked off our pantry nights as clubbers are bringing in nonperishable food items to help restock our church’s food pantry. We also enjoyed parties, fun and food for our Harvest Party night.
November will focus on giving, clubbers can fill shoe boxes for Operation Christmas child, and continue bringing in non-perishable food items to give love and food to the needy in our Church, neighborhood, and community for the holidays.
There will be NO club Wednesday, November 22 a time that we should all: slow down and celebrate with our family and friends. Club will resume Wednesday, November 29, where we will also open the 1st Awana store of the year for clubbers to get their “Shop On”!
We are grateful that our church supports Awana as we can see God working in clubbers lives. Thank you to all who help clubbers learn God’s word, so they can hide it in their hearts and apply it to their daily lives!
We ask that you continue to partner with us by praying for everyone involved in club and that we’ll reach clubbers and their families through the teaching and memorization of God's Word, and for future clubbers.
Thank-you for your continued support in this ministry!
Because Kids matter to God!

Joining families in the battle to prepare students to stand for Christ.
Dayton Christian School inspires students to discover their God-given potential, become life-long learners, and stand on God’s absolute truth.
To be the school of choice for Christian families in Southwest Ohio.
God uses DCS as a Christ-centered school:
Unity – Oneness in the Body of Christ (Eph 4:1-6 and John 17:20-23)
Scripture – Authority of God’s Word (2 Tim 3:16-17)
Excellence – Quest for Excellence in All Things (Col 3:23; Phil 4:8)
Service – Compassion and Outreach (Matt 25:35; 1 John 3:16-17)
Our focus scripture this year is Matthew 6:33. We will seek the Kingdom first
before any accolades, rewards, or notoriety, we want to grow closer to God and expand His Kingdom. We know all things will be taken care of by Him.
Thank you for walking this journey with us. Please pray for our leaders,
faculty, staff and students. Together we are preparing soldiers to fight on a spiritual battlefield for our Lord. We have read the back of the book and we win in the end.
