Connect To Community Through Life Groups

During this time especially, we all need a little extra connection and encouragement. Dawson Life Groups are the perfect place to find that community, and we’d love to get you connected! Most Adult Life Groups are meeting virtually, but some are meeting in homes, outside, or here at the church during the week or on Sunday evenings. We'd love to help you find a group. If you are interested in visiting a Life Group, please let us know by emailing
