Sunday Worship - Sanctuary

Today, Dawson welcomes Rev. Paul Msiza, President of The Baptist World Alliance. Rev. Msiza is a native of South Africa, born in Mamelodi, a township of Pretoria, the capital city. In July of 2015, he was installed as the second African to be President of the Baptist World Alliance (BWA). He has been actively involved in the BWA since 1998, including serving as one of the twelve Vice Presidents. Prior to his installation as President of the BWA, Rev. Msiza was President of the All Africa Baptist Fellowship (2006–2011) and General Secretary of the Baptist Convention of South Africa (2001–2010).

 

Rev. Msiza was trained at the Hebron Teacher Training College and worked bi-vocationally as a pastor and school teacher from 1988 until he became founding principal of the Baptist Convention College in 1995. He is currently registered with the University of Pretoria for a post-graduate program and was recently presented with an Honorary Doctorate in Ministry by the Theological University of Andhra Pradesh in India. He is the Senior Pastor of Peniel Salem Baptist Church in Pretoria. Rev. Msiza will share a message in all three worship services.

Volunteers Needed For Maine Conference

April 24–25, Brunswick, Maine

The Maine Baptist Association is conducting a church revitalization event for churches throughout Maine. Revitalizing existing churches that are stagnant or declining is a very effective way to help churches in Maine reach more people for Christ. The conference will be led by experts from the North American Mission Board. Our six-person team will provide logistics support and hospitality, including helping with meals and refreshments. The conference will be at the Lisbon Falls Baptist Church in Lisbon Falls. Our team will travel to Maine on Thursday, April 23 and return on Sunday evening, April 26. Travel will be to Portland, and the team will stay in Brunswick. Team members will make and pay for all of their own travel arrangements. For more information, please contact Tom Thompson at tomthompson205@gmail.com.

VBS Mission Project Set For Maine

July 13–17, Scarborough, Maine

Summit Community Church is growing. In 2017, Dawson’s Chapel Choir served there in a large community event, and in 2018 we had a team help with their VBS. They have since merged with another church and are now even better positioned to have a very successful VBS outreach event. This year they will do VBS each morning that week and then each afternoon our volunteers will serve in the community with their middle school and high school students. Dawson is sending a team of 10 to 12 people to help conduct these events. Our team will travel to Maine on Saturday, July 11 and return on Saturday, July 18. Travel will be to Portland, and housing is being arranged by Summit Church. Team members will make and pay for their own air travel arrangements. There is a mission team interest meeting on Sunday, March 8, at 4:00 p.m., in Room 252 North. Please contact Jim Gifford at jgifford@dawsonchurch.org for more information or to sign up.

Eurasia-Relational Evangelism Projects

In 2020, Dawson will send two teams to work with our partners in Central Asia. Both of these relational evangelism projects will not only do ministry, but also lay the foundation for Dawson to send multiple teams over the next five years as a part of our ongoing Go Love Tell efforts. Even though much of the New Testament was written in their country, currently only a very small percentage of the population are Christian. Project #1 is from June 12 to 21 and is led by Laran Lofton and Cyndi Cortes. Project #2 is from September 18 to 27 and is led by Kyle and Ali Bailey. The cost for either project is $1,800. For additional information, please contact Ben Hale at bhale@dawsonchurch.org.
