Friday, September 28, 5:00 p.m. to Saturday, September 29, 2:00 p.m.

So much of what we know about how Jesus ministered is from the stories of Him at the table. Sometimes, His table was a large mountainside and sometimes it was in an intimate room. Wherever it was, it was always big enough to include all that would come and listen and learn. No one was excluded. You too, have a place at our table and we cannot wait to listen and learn with you there. You are invited, just as you are, and we hope you will come.

We are excited to welcome Mary Jo Sharp, Founder of Confident Christianity, back to Dawson and look forward to some extended time with her and her teaching! Mary Jo is a former atheist from the Pacific Northwest, who thought religion was odd at best. She now holds a Masters in Christian Apologetics and is an assistant professor of apologetics at Houston Baptist University. She serves on faculty with Summit Ministries Student Conferences, and is a guest lecturer with Ravi Zacharias International Ministries. Mary Jo is a published author with Kregel PublicationsB&H Publications, and is the author of the top-selling Bible study, “Why Do You Believe That?” as well as Living in Truth with LifeWay Christian Resources.  A clear communicator with a heart for people, she finds great joy in sharing the deep truths of her Lord and Savior.

Leading our worship this weekend will be Ashley Spurling. Ashley is a native of Birmingham, a wife and mother of 2 precious daughters. God has graciously given Ashley years of opportunity to do what she loves with all her heart ... pointing others to Jesus through music. She loves singing in her home church, Shades Mountain Community Church. She spent 10 years recording and traveling with Red Mountain Music and was involved in projects that have reached churches all over the world. More recently, she has been a vocalist on The Corner Room - Psalm records and has partnered with local singer/songwriter, Corey Nolen, in shows and recording projects. Ashley is no stranger to Dawson and is thrilled to worship with you for this weekend!
