October Memory Verse

There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call—one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. Ephesians 4:4–6

Minister of Outreach and Assimilation – Liz Cuenin

By recommendation of the Personnel Team, Dawson is excited to announce that Liz Cuenin has been selected to serve as our Minister of Outreach and Assimilation effective November 8, 2021.

 

Liz began serving on staff at Dawson in November 2011 as the Administrative Assistant in the Recreation Ministry. In November 2016 she became the Recreation Ministry and Program Coordinator and then in January 2017, she joined the Discipleship Ministry Team as the Discipleship Ministry Associate. In all three of her positions at Dawson Liz has served faithfully and with excellence, always going above and beyond what is asked of her and reflecting the heart of a servant in all she does. Liz has a passion for healthy church membership, helping people get connected with Life Groups and service opportunities, and with the Dawson church family as a whole. Liz is currently pursuing a Master of Arts in Christian Education at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. She also co-leads the Cuenin/Hagen/Orso Life Group.

 

In this new position of Minister of Outreach and Assimilation Liz will be responsible for welcoming and connecting guests into meaningful membership in the Dawson church family. She has many gifts that she will bring to this position including a welcoming and outgoing personality, great organizational skills, and a passion to serve. We are excited to have Liz serve in this new role and to see how God uses her in it. Please join us in praying for Liz as she transitions to her new role.

Giving With Gratitude

"Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."  2 Corinthians 9:7

 

In his letter to the church in Corinth and the Christians throughout Achaia, Paul is communicating several important items, but one theme in particular seems to permeate the letter, and that is generosity. More specifically, Paul is encouraging the church to give generously and do it with excellence. Listen to this charge from Paul in 2 Cor 8:7.  He says, "But just as you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love for us—see that you also excel in this grace of giving." 

 

When we think of stewardship, we may initially think of giving back to God what is all His anyway through the giving of our finances. But while we are called and encouraged to give generously of our finances, we are also called to give generously of our talents and our time. Paul expounds on the theme of sowing generously in the verse leading up to our theme verse for this stewardship season by saying, "Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously." 

 

Regardless of the season God has us in currently, my prayer for our church is that we would find ways to be grateful for what God has entrusted us to steward well. May we be encouraged to give generously and sow many seeds so that through our faithfulness in giving, we would give God all the glory that He is due.  

 

As we approach Commitment Day, let us steward what we have been given for God’s glory and the advancement of the Gospel with a grateful and generous heart. Commitment Cards will be collected throughout November and December. You can also make your commitment online at dawsonchurch.org/commitment.
