dk Guide

This fall, our dawson kids leadership team wants to help your family take the next step in discipleship together. Beginning in September, the dawson kids ministry is excited to launch the “dk Guide.” This resource is a kid-friendly booklet that will be available for all kids to utilize during their time in worship. Our goal is to help each kid to meaningfully engage with worship as equal members of the church body. We believe the dk Guide is just one more way to engage kids and equip parents to be “confident in Christ.”

 

dk Guides will be available for pick up in the Arendall Welcome Center and the Next Steps Area. We look forward to putting these in the hands of your children and joining your family in worship as part of the Dawson Family of Faith.

Together in Giving & Serving
Bill Johnston Announces Retirement After 15 Years Of Faithful Ministry At Dawson

Bill Johnston, Dawson’s Associate Pastor, plans to retire from his position effective December 31, 2021. Bill joined Dawson's Staff on August 1, 2006, as Associate Pastor. Over the past 15 years, Bill has been able to minister to many people and families within the walls of Dawson as well as the community, often being called upon in times of difficulty or crisis. He has walked alongside hundreds of families in times of grief, officiating funerals and graveside services. Bill has faithfully demonstrated the love of Christ through hospital visitation and many other ways of caring for God’s people. His oversight of the Stephen ministry has been an extension of his care for the congregation. Bill has also served in times of great joy, as evidenced in his mission work in Peru and Northeast Africa. Bill is always available when someone needs to talk to him and has been gifted in knowing the right thing to do and say in any situation. 

 

As a Bible teacher Bill has co-led Wednesday Adult Bible Studies and has skillfully filled the pulpit when needed on Sunday mornings. Bill’s capacity and gifts for teaching and preaching are among the ways that Dawson members and guests have been blessed by his ministry. Bill is seen as a pillar of the community throughout Birmingham because of his unselfish service throughout our community. He is an outstanding leader, and his kindness and easy nature make him a pleasure to be around. Bill has modeled tireless and faithful service as our Associate Pastor and has blessed the lives of so many here at Dawson over the last 15 years.

 

We are grateful to God for leading Bill to Dawson 15 years ago. We look forward to seeing how God uses him as he transitions to a new season of life. Please join us in praying for Bill as he prepares for retirement and makes plans for new areas of service. Please also join us in thanking Bill and Janet for their faithful service to Dawson.

Together in Bible Study
Ready To Join A Life Group?

Here at Dawson, we believe that the Christian life was never meant to be lived alone. We all need close 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. We want to help you get plugged into a Life Group to study the Bible and connect with other believers. There are Life Groups for every age, season, and stage of life that meet on Sunday mornings at 8:30 a.m., 9:45 a.m., and 11:00 a.m. On any Sunday morning, please drop by the Next Steps Area, and someone will be available to help you find a group to attend.

Praying Together

What better way to begin our Sunday mornings than gathering together to pray? We’d like to invite you to join Dawson staff and members for a time of prayer in the Fellowship Hall from 8:00 to 8:15 a.m. on Sunday mornings prior to 8:30 worship and Life Groups. We will share in a meaningful time of guided prayer in adoration, confession, thanksgiving, and supplication unto God. Registration is not required; simply show up to join us for a time of prayer. 

 

Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all that we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3:20–21
