Ignite: An Outward Focused Church
In the book of Acts, the first-century church grew from a few believers in Jerusalem into a network of churches spreading across the Roman Empire. As believers walked by faith, lived in community, and boldly shared the reality of Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit ignited a movement.
Tim Simpson continues the Ignite sermon series with a message entitled "Don't Hold It Against Them" from Acts 8:8-8:3.
Finally, brothers, 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 4:8

During the summer, children often get to experience new activities through camps. Dawson offers Day Camps, Music Camp, Art Camp and sports camps for our kids as well as children from throughout the community. These camps use creative ways to help children learn about God and grow in their relationship with Him. In addition to our many missions activities, these camps are growing the next generation of missionaries.
Our expenses are at their peak during the summer because of so many activities and programs. Even if you are away, remember to give your tithes and offerings to Dawson. The goal for giving to the ministry budget from May 26 through July 7 is $1.2 Million. "Be Found Faithful" in your giving as we support God’s work through Dawson.
Kids Connection gives away clothes, books, and toys of all types to children whose parents or caregivers may not otherwise have the resources to provide them. Some of our current needs for donations are:
Please see if you have any of these items that you can donate. Donations may be brought to Kids Connection on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. or to the North Parking Lot at the church on Wednesdays from 4:45 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.
The Homebound Ministry needs a male volunteer. If you are interested contact Jim Simpson at 871-7324 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Please help us take Dawson to those who are unable to attend.
Due to the increasing cost of airline baggage cost Dawson Mission team often leave empty luggage with the missionaries. In some cases we need to take supplies into the country in luggage rather than in trunks. Because of this, we need medium and large suitcases on hand for our mission teams. If you have luggage that could donate, please bring it to the Church Office and attach Ben Hale’s name to it.
Sunday, June 23, 4:00 p.m., 258 North
On Sunday, June 23 at 4:00 p.m. in Room 258 North, the Inglenook Mission Team will meet to plan for this year’s Vacation Bible School at Inglenook Park. Every summer Dawson volunteers conduct a mission Vacation Bible School. For many of the children and youth at this city park, this is the highlight of their summer.
We are in need of volunteers of all ages and interests. This is a great opportunity for parents to work along-side their school-age children. We are also looking for leaders to help with planning and organization. If you would like to help with the project, please come to the meeting or contact Sharlene Speer at TSSpeer12@aol.com. Volunteers are still needed for the Bible learning activities, recreation, crafts, refreshments, and worship.
This month, the Dawson Family of Faith will send a mission team for the first time to Nepal to share the gospel. Please pray for the team leaders and team members as they share the good news of God’s love and for the people the team will encounter. The following are some specific prayer requests from the team:
Please continue to pray for the team members upon their return as the opportunity to share with friends and neighbors may have an even greater impact.
I am a child, sad and alone.
I have no parents, or a home.
I look for food, both day and night;
but it never fills my appetite.
The place where I sleep and go to bed,
is under a bridge where I rest my head.
I beg for money and people say, "Nope."
I used to feel like there was no hope.
But, one day there came a mission team.
When they saw me, they began to beam.
They gave me food, clothes, and a toy,
also the gift of Jesus and joy.
I will never forget that special day.
‘Cause though I am poor I can always say:
"I have the most important of all things,
Jesus Christ, the King of Kings!"
Written by Haley Hauck (Age 11) and inspired by the plight of the homeless children she witnessed while on a mission trip to Honduras.
