Music & Worship


It Matters.

There are some things that words alone just can’t say. For those times, there’s music. And when music becomes the servant of faith, it is transformed into a powerful tool for expressing and receiving the redemption found through Jesus Christ. Through music, we are able to be more like our Creator by creating something beautiful. We become unified as a body when we sing shoulder-to-shoulder and side-by-side. We remember our mission as we hum songs of faith in our cars, our homes, and our places of business. We become better followers of God as we humble ourselves in service though worship. Music matters.

John Woods, Music & Worship Pastor

There’s nothing like autumn in Birmingham. The weather gets cooler, the jackets come out, and the trees are on fire with vibrant colors and deep hues. The rolling hills all over town are a beautiful canvas of warm color. It’s the diversity of those colors that makes it truly beautiful.

So it is with the Music & Worship Ministry at Dawson.

Through broad and eclectic expressions of worship through music, people of every age find places of service, ministry, and worship here. Alone, these ministries are certainly beautiful. But together, they combine to form a beautiful and vibrant picture of a church focused on being found faithful as God’s people. Join us in this mission and offer your gifts to God!
