From Your Pastor

All it takes is a trip to Target to see that we are quickly approaching the holiday season. Before passed over Halloween costumes are removed from the shelves, Christmas decorations are being stocked. It makes me wonder if Thanksgiving ever feels left out of the holiday party.

 

It seems that Thanksgiving has been reduced to an inconvenient speed bump on the freeway to the destination of Christmas. But before we start making our Christmas list and checking it twice, I think it is important to stop and ponder all that we have to be thankful for during this Thanksgiving season.

 

As I read the Psalms, I am reminded of the opportunities that we have to thank God for the blessings of life. In Psalm 118:1, David reminds us to, “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!” There is no better way to begin this holiday season than by turning our attention to the One whose love never tires.

 

When I begin the process of thanking God for his grace and mercy, my mind wanders to God’s goodness all around me. My family and I have been blessed over the last three months by the outpouring of love that you have showered on us. I am thankful for the privilege of serving alongside of our staff who serve so faithfully. I am thankful for the way that I see God using you to make His name known in the communities of Birmingham and beyond.

 

This week, I invite you to slow down and take in God’s goodness all around you.

 

Blessings,

Pastor David

Together in Mission & Ministry
Dawsonaires Minister At Brother Bryan

The Dawsonaires led in their annual night of ministry for the residents of Brother Bryan Ministries through a three-part endeavor. Dawsonaires collected and donated toiletries, office supplies, and books, provided a full sit-down dinner, and ended the evening with a wonderful presentation of the Gospel through music. The men joined in singing on several songs and played a key role in the worship time by sharing Bible verses highlighting how God cares for us.

Are You Connected To A Life Group?

Are you currently connected to a Sunday Morning Life Group? On Sunday, November 19, we invite you to Starting Point, an informal meeting at 9:40 a.m. in the Gathering Room. At  Dawson, we believe that the Christian life was never meant to be lived alone. We all need relationships with other believers to walk with us through the ups and downs of life, and we all need to be deeply rooted in God’s Word. Finding the right Life Group will help you to study the Bible and connect with other believers. At Starting Point, you will learn how you can get plugged into a Life Group and which Life Group would be the best fit for you. We look forward to seeing you on November 19.
